Billy Maxwell

Sam Shin

Evan McDermott

John Lockwood

Bridget Markwalter

Nick Colavito

Cassie Joyce

Chris Zuniga

Noah Reeves

Riley Krick

Sophie Allen

Luke Peereboom

Alan Chen

Cole Miller

The oral bee whittled that number down to five super spellers:

Billy Maxwell

Luke Peereboom

Cassie Joyce

Alan Chen

John Lockwood

These finalists will compete against the finalists from five contending local middle schools. A total of 25 competitors from Delaware Valley, Dingman-Delaware, Port Jervis, Montague, and Eldred will compete for the chance to represent the tristate area at the Scripps National Spelling Bee, to be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, in May.

The Tri-State Spelling Bee will be held on Sunday, March 10, at 1:30 p.m. in the Delaware Valley High School auditorium. The public is invited to attend.
