She will join second place honoree Taylor Geraci and third place honoree Taelon DeGroff, both fifth graders, in representing Minetto Elementary School at the Oswego City School District spelling bee in March.

Principal Jennifer Sullivan said several students were ecstatic to participate in six rounds to get to the top three spellers, but the tight race continued with an additional 10-round battle between the second and first place finishers.
