NEW: 2012 Miss Massachusetts Crowned in Worcester

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Taylor Kinzler took home the 2012 Miss Massachusetts crown at The Hanover Theatre Saturday night, and will represent the Commonwealth in next year's Miss America Pageant.

Kinzler, a student at the University of Rhode Island, entered the pageant as Miss Norfolk County. The aspiring broadcast journalist ran on a platform of promoting volunteerism, and impressed during the talent portion with an acrobatic dance routine.

First runner-up went to Amanda Narciso, who entered the pageant as Miss Fall River. Just behind Narciso were second runner-up Brianna Bostic of Plymouth County, third runner-up Marlena Johnson of New Bedford and fourth runner-up Nicole DiBlasi of Taunton.

Each of the winners received scholarship money, with the winning Kinzler leading the way with an $8,500 award. Shrewsbury native Catie Coates was not one of the nine finalists, but her dancing talent did earn her the chance to perform in the finale. Coates was named a non-finalist talent performer.

Kinzler takes the crown from last year's winner Molly Whalen, and will go on to the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas next January.
