Congratulations to Andrew Boggess, who won the 2019 Central Catholic School Spelling Bee on Thursday. Andrew, an eighth-grader who also competed in Academic Spell Bowl last fall, survived eight rounds and won the competition by correctly spelling the championship word, hoisted.
Andrew will represent CC in the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee on March 2 at Faith Christian School.
Seventh-grader Eli Switzer finished second. Also participating in the school spelling bee were eighth-graders Megan Schmierer, Sydney Conn, and Hunter Conn.
Most of them will be invited to participate in the Christian Schools Spelling Bee on Feb. 4, also at Faith Christian.—
