EMS student places sixth at county spelling bee
EMS eighth grade student Breckyn Poe placed sixth at the Butler County Spelling Bee on February 2.
Poe made it to the eighth round, correctly spelling tapirs, atrocity, sanguine, oologist, frolic, icicle, and primal before accidentally saying "p" instead of "b" when spelling humble.
Kareena Bhakta, the Grandview representative correctly spelled flabbergasted and memorandum before misspelling cypress in round three.
Gretchen Raple represented Lincoln and spelled composure correctly, but missed hallucinations by replacing the "c" with an "s" in round two.
Dakota Olson, the Skelly representative, misspelled generalissimo in round one.
