At the Scripps National Spelling Bee, Angelina Holm spelled her round 2 and round 3 words, cancrizans and simulacrum, correctly but did not make it through the written test to the finals.  She finished in 42nd place.  Jake Faulk also spelled his round 2 and round 3 words correctly, arborvitae and metatarsus, and had the second highest score on the written test making it to the finals of the national spelling bee. In round 4 he correctly spelled lotic, but in round 5 misspelled lochan finishing in 31st place.  Congratulations to both spellers.
