County Spelling Bee champ crowned

February 12, 2014

Rachel Ruble, an eighth-grader at Wyneken Memorial Lutheran School, successfully spelled “collage” Tuesday evening at South Adams High School to claim first-place honors in the annual Adams County Middle School Spelling Bee.
    Ruble, the daughter of Todd and Lynn Ruble of Decatur, outlasted runner-up Hanna Rhoades, a sixth-grader at South Adams Middle School, to claim the title.
    Ten students representing eight county schools qualified for the county bee by winning at their school level. Five rounds after the bee had started, that number had been cut in half, and by the end of the eighth round of competition only Ruble and Rhoades remained.
