ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

April Brown, Miss Limestone Rodeo, was named first runner-up at the Miss Rodeo USA Pageant in Oklahoma City Sunday.

Sheriff Mike Blakely said Brown was up against "incredibly close competition" with fellow entrants. "We are extremely proud of April for her representation and we are very fortunate to have her as our ambassador. She represented Alabama with great class and dignity and will serve as a great role model for young people as they enter our pageant during our May rodeo," said Blakely.

Brown won the Horsemanship Award and scored the highest on a written test covering current events, the history and traditions of rodeo and more. She is originally from Platte City MO.

Lakeside CA resident Elisa Swenson claimed the Miss Rodeo USA title, which was held by last year's Miss Limestone, Lauren Terry. You can find the full list of winners at the pageant's Facebook page.

The 32nd Annual Limestone Sheriff's Rodeo will be held May 16 and 17.
