Wednesday Feb 13, 13

Congratulations to the 2013 Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose District Spelling Bee Winners.  Madeline Bollingmo, a 7th grade student at BCMS, bested 27 other competitors by spelling "triceratops."  Madeline is the daughter of Brandon and Robin Bollingmo of Buffalo.  She earned the title of champion speller for the second time in three years in the tenth round of the bee.  Second place honors were won by another 7th grade student Ben Nelson.  Ben is the sone of Matt and Nancy Nelson of Buffalo.  As part of a tug of war finish, Ben was not named the 2nd place winner until the 20th round.  A special thanks to Julie Brooks, BCMS Science teacher, and Barb Axel, Retired BCMS Principal and English teacher for judging.  Thank you also to Jason Tornell, BCMS English teacher, for pronouncing for the bee.  Buffalo Books once again donated gift certificates to the winners.
