Giants Volleyball Meets Miss California Pageant


This week, just minutes away in Fresno, two COS ladies are competing for the 2014 Miss California crown: Miss Central Valley Blaire Bostwick (left) and Miss Tulare County Tara Broderick (right). The Miss California winner will move on to the Miss America competition—and lest we novices find ourselves confused, this is separate from the Miss California USA pageant, which feeds the Miss USA competition.

Giants volleyball fans may recognize Broderick from the 2013 COS team; the freshman held the defensive specialist position under head coach Pete Rasmussen. Alas, Broderick will not be showing off her net skills as her talent, instead she will perform ballet. Her platform is one of anti-bullying, for which she authored a children’s book.

Bostwick is promoting A Heart for Service, an organization she founded to network Central Valley volunteers with non-profits needing their help. She will sing as her talent.

Both ladies say they have grown in confidence through participation in the Miss California organization.

Starting tonight, Broderick and Bostwick join five other San Joaquin Valley women in the competition, which is being held at the Saroyan Theatre. A total of 52 contestants must demonstrate skills in education, leadership, service, and talent through Saturday night’s conclusion.

Good luck lady Giants!
