On Monday, November 2, Pike High School's Spell Bowl team won their area competition at Danville High School, qualifying 5th in the state out of 57 teams. Freshman Katie Danforth led the team. Sophomore Emily Hyatt missed just one word; Joy Morounfolu and Damilola Fasipe missed two words each. Other valued spellers were Ashaunte Jones, Jada Johnson, Jalynn Carter, Makenzie Phillips, Atinuke Ayangade, and Breanna Steiff. Kennedy Steele served as the alternate.
Please congratulate these fine spellers on their accomplishment and wish them continued success at the state finals, which will be held at Purdue University on Saturday, November 14.
