Spelling Bee Champ

Justine Arevalo, an eighth grader at St. Mary School, won the St. Croix District Spelling Bee on February 11, beating 23 other students ranging in age from 8 to 13. After more than two hours, the 13-year-old won in the 21st round after a nine-round bout with a former Virgin Islands Territorial Bee champion by spelling "veracious" veraciously. She will compete next in the Territorial Spelling Bee.
