Pitcock Fails to Advance

by Nichole Hannahs on May 29, 2013

After spelling both his words correctly during Wednesday’s preliminary rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee Maysville’s Matthew Pitcock failed to advance to the semi-finals. 

Those chosen to move forward not only had to spell correctly on stage Wednesday, but had to also score well on a computerized vocabulary test.

The words Pitcock spelled Wednesday included philippic and solon. 

We thank Matthew for representing our area at the Spelling Bee and for making us proud.
