The Scripps National Spelling Bee – On to the Finals

June 4, 2010

It looks like they ended round 6 with speller 160 – I guess they got their ten and the rest of the spellers got a pass.  The homeschoolers are going in with only two of the ten spots, which, percentagewise, is pretty much where they were when the semifinals started, but slightly worse than they have placed in recent history, if I remember correctly.

My personal guesses for the finals was Tim Ruiter, Connor Aberlé and Gina Solomito, so I’m zero for three as a forecaster, I DID consider Elizabeth Platz, but just felt better about Gina in general.

Lanson wasn’t even on my radar.  He’s potentially a real Cinderella story here – much as Tim was last year!
