It took 23 rounds Saturday morning, but an Eastwood Middle School sixth-grader won the Wood County Spelling Bee.
Tabitha Escalante took the top trophy by correctly spelling machismo and then cryptic.
Mary Kalmar, a seventh-grader from Bowling Green Middle School, took second.
These two, along with four others, will move on to the regional championship spelling bee set for March 14 at Owens Community College.
It took 12 rounds to whittle the field of 16 down to just Escalante and Kalmar.
Then the showdown started, and continued through regatta, which Escalante got wrong, and so did Kalmar. On the next word, parmesan, both misspelled it again. The same happened on ridiculous.
Escalante correctly spelled benevolent, then Kalmar missed machismo. Escalante then spelled machismo correctly, and won the contest by correctly spelling cryptic.
