Also in the final round was team "We're Missing 'Glee' for This, Nick Sustana!!!", with members Erin Latta, Kim Kelly and Eric and Phyllis Fagrelius.
Ridgway Superfans, sporting neon green hair, pompoms and Ridgway High School tee-shirts, won the costume contest. The loudest applause of the night was for Ouray fourth-grader Rae Sustana, who correctly named the nursery rhyme character who suffered from arachnophobia (Little Miss Muffet).
