SWAN VALLEY - Swan Valley Elementary (SVE) sixth-grader Trista Alexander won the school's spelling bee held Feb. 7 at SVE.  Alexander is pictured with runner-up seventh-grader Seth Richardson and SVE supervising teacher Susan Bracha. 

Alexander competed against ten Swan Valley students in grades five through eight. After Alexander and Richardson out spelled the other students, Alexander went head-to-head with Richardson, spelling several words including bedlam, quandary and pearlescent, to break their tie. According to the rules, the tie is broken when a speller gets two words in a row correctly.  Alexander spelled unappealing and oblivious to win. 

Alexander said she is excited and nervous to go to the county Spelling Bee in Missoula on Thurs. Feb. 23 at Sentinel High School.  She said she will be ready because she is going to study Spelling Bee words online.  She would like to be one of the three spellers that go to the Treasure State Spelling Bee in Billings Saturday, March 18.
