Barnesville's Alana Trigg wins OVAC Queen of Queens
WHEELING, W.Va. — Barnesville’s Alana Trigg was crowned the new OVAC Queen of Queens during halftime of the Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Football Game on July 24.
Trigg was the first in the area to be crowned for nearly 50 years. Becky Cheffy, of Barnesville, claimed the title in 1974.
She was presented her crown by 2019 queen Andrea Alamaro from Madonna.
Trigg plans to attend West Virginia University to study health and well-being on a pre-med track. She'll also be a part of the Mountaineer dance team.
While attending Barnesville High School, Trigg was a four time All American cheerleader, Best in State Cheerleading State champion, varsity track district and regional qualifier, swim district qualifier, president of the National Honor Society, held various club memberships, held a gold GPA and was in the top 5 of her class.
About her experience in being crowned Queen of Queens, Trigg said "This experience has been amazing. The girls were all amazing and I’m on Cloud Nine."
Upon winning Queen of Queens, Trigg won a rhinestone crown and sash, custom plaque, a $2,000 cash scholarship and commemorative pillow. She will enjoy her reign for one year and will perform and crown the 2022 Queen at next year’s festivities.
“This is so emotional for me. Only one person from my school has ever won this pageant, so this means so much. I’ve worked so hard. I want to thank my family, especially my mom. She's my dance teacher, friends, everybody who came out.”
