Haley O’Brien of Excelsior is the new Miss Minnesota USA 2014 and Catherine Stanley of Bloomington is Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2014.
Haley is the first former Teen titleholder to win Miss MN USA since Alla Ilushka, Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2002, won in 2007. Catherine is the fourth consecutive newcomer to win the Teen titleholder.
The only newcomer in the Miss top five was newcomer Kayla Casciano. 2012 semi-finalists Jessica Scheu and Brittany Dyshaw, neither of whom competed last year, were first and third runners-up respectively, and Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2007 Vanessa Vonbehren placed fourth runner-up. Brie Anderson made the top 15 and has sadly aged out after competing every year since 2006 (and in Teen in 2005). 2009 and 2010 Teen runner-up Ashley Johnson missed the cut for the second time.
In the Teen competition, the top five were all new. 2013 first runner-up Dasia Mestad made the semi-finals and 2012 first runner-up Marina Kong won the non-finalist swimsuit award.
