Congratulations to the Indiana Academy Spell Bowl team!
Tuesday, November 1, at Hamilton Southeastern in Fishers, the team of seven students competed against Carmel, Fishers, New Castle, Hamilton Southeastern, and Yorktown. As the Academy did not have a full team of 10, the team could only progress so far in the team competition and cannot compete in the State Finals, as it is understood it right now. Coach David Haynes said, “If we had had 10 students, I am fairly sure we would not only be in the State Finals, but the favorites, as 4 out of 7 of our students had perfect rounds. Consider joining the Spell Bowl team next year!”
The team, which did an extraordinary job, consisted of Carson Gull, Kennedy Horner, Sydney McFarren, Alyesa Rathinasamy, Elizabeth Rayl, Jonathan Slater, and Rachel Watson. Alesya, Jonathan, Ellizabeth, and Kennedy all received perfect sources in their rounds and will have the opportunity moving forward to compete individually.
Mr. Haynes said, “I was incredibly proud of how this team comported itself and competed. Let them know the students are appreciated if you happen to see them soon.”
