Dubois County spell bowlers penned their way to the top of leaderboards in a statewide contest on Monday evening.

Holy Trinity notched an eighth place finish in the Red Class of the Indiana Academic Spell Bowl Elementary Division. The team spelled 46 of 56 words correctly at last night’s event. Holland Elementary placed 29th in the Red Class class, while Cedar Crest Intermediate’s Red Team finished in 38th place.
