South Kitsap girls displayed their beauty, poise and wrestling skills Saturday night as the 2010 Fathoms O’Fun pageant was held in Port Orchard.
Kristine Ramsdell, a 16-year-old junior at South Kitsap High School, was named a 2010 Royal Ambassador, along with 18-year-old SKHS senior Karrisa Cruz. Both received a $1,000 scholarship.
Melany Fry, 16, and Tawnya Erickson, 17, both SKHS juniors, were named 2010 Ambassadors and given $500 scholarships.
Last year, the pageant stopped crowning a queen and princesses — or prince, as with Alan Johnson in 2007 — and instead gives contestants the title of ambassadors and royal ambassadors.
Ramsdell is the daughter of Ida Ramsdell and played the piano as her artistic expression. Karrisa Cruz is the daughter of Luis and Diane Cruz and sang a poem she wrote.
Erickson is the daughter of James and Sandi Erickson, and her artistic expression was dancing. Fry, the daughter of Eugene Fry and Sherri Schribber, performed wrestling moves with a partner, and won the $100 award for artistic expression.
