Williamsburg speller eliminated in preliminary round of national spelling bee

Pressure's on: National spelling bee comes down to final 15 - Erie News Now: News, Weather & Sports | WICU 12 ...

The sisters finished first and second in two previous competitions this spring, with Sophia winning the Buchanan County Spelling Bee, while Sylvia won the Northwest Missouri Regional Spelling Bee to qualify for the national event.

Spelling is important for all students because it helps get good scores on college entrance exams, helps in learning foreign languages and expands vocabularies, he said. Her name was not among the list of finalists announced Wednesday night.

No matter. She got the word right and advanced to the finals of the competition.

For the first round, the students had an idea of the word they would be getting which judges chose from their study guide. "She spelled "stentorophonic" correctly!"

"I'm pretty competitive", Maia said.

The finals continue with Round 4, according to the Scripps National website. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that one of the words she had to spell correctly was "nasopharynx".

Pawlicki misspelled the word “desman” a small, semiaquatic European mammal related to the mole, with a long tubular muzzle and webbed toes. There are tiebreaker provisions.

Next school year, Maia will attend Bishop Gorman High School.

Two more rounds came next. Melodie was speller nine in group one.

Propper said she reads about three books per month, and is a fan of the Divergent trilogy as well as the works of author James Patterson.

"It's been a great day", Debbi Mills said.

"I didn't think we'd be taking the test with everybody in the room", Jake said. Alice Liu, 10, from Wild Horse Elementary School has made it to the finals which begin today.

Those interested in rooting for York can catch the early rounds of the finals on ESPN2, and the final rounds on ESPN later in the evening.
