For the Fifth Year in a Row John Boeger Wins Colusa County Spelling Event

2015 JrHs Spelling Bee

Two Egling Middle School students took top honors in the Colusa County Junior High Spelling Championship on Tuesday, March 11, 2015, and for the fifth year in a row, John Boeger will advance to the State Spelling competition on Saturday, May 2, 2015.

Boeger, an eighth grade student, took first place and Mia Critchfield, a seventh grade student,  took second place in the competition which enables Colusa County’s top seventh, eighth, and ninth grade spellers to participate in the State Junior High Spelling Championship.

Critchfield has known Boeger for years, but she did not allow his past wins to intimidate her during her first county spelling competition.

Critchfield went toe to toe against Boeger and kept her focus during the three round, written event which included ten other strong competitors.

After 42 words, Boeger showed the determination and spirit that allowed him to win his prior three first-place and one second-place award and won the event after correctly spelling “gregarious.”

Colusa County Superintendent of Schools, Michael West, was Emcee, and Colusa County Board of Education President, Ed Conrado was the Spelling Master for the contest.

At the conclusion, Mr. Conrado asked the audience to recognize the academic hard work of all the competitors, and Superintendent West congratulated Boeger and Critchfield on their wins.

The public is invited to the California State Junior High Spelling Championship for grade 7-9 students at Miller Creek School, in San Rafael, California.
