Oceanside CA— Erika Atienza was crowned Miss Oceanside and following what appears to be a family tradition of pageant royalty, Jiselle Banuelos was crowned Miss Teen Oceanside. Her older sister Breanna was Miss Oceanside 2016 while another sister, Kristalina was a Princess from 2015-2017. The abbreviated Scholarship Pageant, sponsored by the Oceanside Sea Lions with Pam Pahnke-Pageant Coordinator and Zucette Lumabas-Pageant Chair, took place Saturday afternoon, June 19, 2021 at Heritage Park.
