Good Luck to all of the spellers!
It was unfortunate to see Nicholas Rushlow and David Phan miss in the round before the finals. David Phan was very strong in his knowledge of Greek roots, but atleast we will hopefully see Nicholas again next year!
Much to my dismay, I missed Rounds 6 and 7 because I had Driver’s Ed class. The first thing I did when I returned was to watch the recording of the final two semi-final rounds. The competition was incredibly intriguing and it will get that much more intense tonight.
Again, good luck to all of the spellers! They are all amazing and will do great!
Let the finals begin…
