The Gateway City has a new Miss Laredo.
Despite a tough field of competitors Lauren Guzman is Miss Laredo U.S.A.for 2011.
This is the second year for Lauren in the competition.
However, she's no stranger to the crown.
Back in 2009 Lauren was crowned Miss Teen Laredo U.S.A. and then Miss Texas Teen U.S.A.
She also did well recently in the Miss Texas U.S.A. Pageant.
Lauren stood out in several categories, but the judges say her response during the question and answer part of the competition sealed the deal.
This year's Miss Teen Laredo is Daniela Rodriguez.
The competition in her age group even tougher with more than 23 teens competing for the title.
