Spelling Bee

On January 19th, Mesa Middle held the school wide spelling bee. Approximately two dozen 7th and 8th graders battled against each other to determine the best speller at Mesa. Luke Hasselback crushed the competition and came out victorious. “The definitions were the hardest part of the competition,” Luke stated. “I studied for 3 to 5 hours every day for a week to prepare.”

Nik Larson was Mesa’s 2nd place winner. “Memorizing the words was the hardest,” Nik Larson stated. “I've been  studying all my grammar words carefully since 2nd grade because I  have wanted to win the spelling bee”. For all his hard work and pride, he has  been rewarded with 2nd place in the Mesa spelling bee and the respect of other students because of his victory.
