SALT LAKE CITY – Friends and family gathered Friday night for a celebratory send-off for Miss Utah USA.

Teale Murdoch is headed for the Miss USA competition, and supporters sent her on her way Friday night with a party at a downtown oyster bar.

Murdoch says she's worked hard to get to this point and is excited for what comes next.

“I’m ecstatic, it took me eight years to win this title, so now that I finally get to go to Miss USA it's like a dream come true, and everything came together all at once,” she said.

The Miss USA pageant will be held on Sunday, June 5 in Las Vegas, and the show will air right here on FOX 13.
