Yelton Spells Way to top at Riverside


Riverside Local Schools held their annual spelling bee on Tuesday.

11 students in grades 7-8 competed in the bee.

The bee went 14 rounds with 7th grader, Isabella Yelton correctly spelling “fluke” to become the champion.

Eighth grader, Kyle Winfrey was the runner-up.

Both students have qualified for the Logan County Spelling Bee at the Holland Theatre on January 16th at 6 p.m.

Yelton will take an online spelling and vocabulary test to advance toward the Scripps Spelling Bee.
