This time last year, Chicago Luvabull dancer Shanon Lersch was selected as Miss Illinois USA 2008. Well, last weekend, Shanon crowned a teammate as her successor to the title. Miss Illinois USA 2009 is Ashley Bond, a second year veteran on the team. Last year, Ashley placed in the top 16. This year she walked away with the crown. In April, she will travel to Las Vegas to compete for the title of Miss USA 2009. Congratulations Ashley!
