Whippet Pride Heading to State Academic Competitions

Congratulations to Sophie Walton, 8th grader, daughter of Russ and Kim Walton of Whitewater, for winning the CESA 2 Regional Scripps Spelling Bee on February 28 at Whitewater High School. Her final winning word was claustrophobic.  She now advances to the 2018 Badger State Spelling Bee on Saturday, April 24 at Madison College.

Congratulations also to Andrew Rollette, 8th grader, son of Jeannine Volbright of Whitewater and Jeffrey Rollette of Chicago, as he was recently chosen as a qualifier for the State National Geographic Bee. Andrew will now travel to Madison on April 6 to compete with other top qualifiers from around our state.

We wish both of these students the best of luck as they take on these new challenges and are very proud to have them representing Whitewater!

1st place – Sophie Walton, 8th grade with the winning word of constabulary.

2nd place – Andrew Rollette, 8th grade. Andrew went out on the word prestidigitation.

3rd place – Madison Strickler, 8th grade. Madison made her final error on the word coppice.

The top winner for 7th grade was Henry Mortimer who went out on the word supercilious.

The top winner for 6th grade was Nate Black who went out on the word tempestuous.

Everyone that participated did an awesome job and should be proud of their voluminous spelling ability. Good luck to Sophie as she advances to compete at the regional Scripps Spelling Bee.
