Congratulations to the junior high Spell Bowl team, which finished fourth in Class 4 Saturday in the state finals competition at Purdue University.
The Knights were led by eighth-graders Joshua Siemers and Samuel Siemers. Both correctly spelled six of their nine words. Also competing for Central Catholic were Kate Hutzel, Maria Vawter, Carson Risch, Andrew Boggess, Joseph Davis, and Nathan Hardenburg. Other members of the team are Joey Stair, Liz Hutzel, Caitlin Dineen, and Joey Riehle.
The Spell Bowl team is coached by Mr. Joe Gerrety and Sister Joan Roeder. The team wishes to thank Miss Katie Canarecci, who served as proctor during the state finals competition.
School Spelling Bee Jan. 18
CC spellers next will be preparing for the School Spelling Bee, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Jan. 18 in Room 126. All seventh- and eighth-graders are invited to participate. The winner of the school spelling bee will represent Central Catholic in the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee for a chance to advance to the national spelling bee.
The top five spellers in the school spelling bee also will represent CC at the Christian Schools Spelling Bee on Feb. 6 at Faith Christian.
Students interested in participating should see Mr. Gerrety this week for a word list.
