Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: Maryland Native Shines in Miss USA Pageant

Sidwell Friends alumni, Nana Meriwether, from Potomac finished as the runner-up in the 2012 Miss USA pageant on Sunday.

The 27-year-old broke all sorts of records in track, basketball, and volleyball while at Sidwell, and later became a two-time All-American volleyball player at UCLA, and a former Olympic hopeful. Now that the pageant is over, Meriwether has plans to attend med school in the fall.

The Miss USA crown went to Miss Rhode Island, 20-year-old Olivia Culpo.
