New Winner Crowned in 2014 Cascade County Spelling Bee

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The county spelling bee brings in students from all around for a chance to spell their way to victory. It's time once again for the annual Cascade County Spelling Bee this year I caught up with veteran speller Zach Douglas from Cascade Public School to get his thoughts on this years competition.

"Win w-i-n. but I'm going to be a winner so w-i-n-n-e-r," says Douglas.

Douglas was in last years Cascade County Spelling Bee and was knocked out in the earlier rounds on a tough word.

"I got out on the word beige because I was confused with the letters so I didn't get very far it was in the 3rd round," explains Douglas.

Douglas has been preparing since his early exit from last years competition in the hopes of being one of the top three.

"Well I've read a lot of books this summer and during the school year and I studies a lot of my packet with my word list,"

Douglas says this years competition is pretty tough but he is still confident going into his final year competing.

"I think that it's going to go well. I think there is a lot of good spellers here. this is my last year I can do it because I am in 8th grade,"

Though he put up a good effort Douglas finished in 5th place this year getting out on the word pitchblende. Making this the longest he has gone in the spelling bee.

This year's first place winner is Noah Hollenback from Sacajawea Elementary School. He will be going with the 2nd place finisher Taylor Radonich from Lewis and Clark Elementary and third place Quincy Balius from Our Lady of Lourdes to the state competition in Billings.
