Marlie tried, but unfortunately got knocked out on her first word "type". However, she was in good company. It only took 3 rounds to knock out 13 of the 15 participants! And honestly, if she had spelled that word, she would've been out on the next one - it was a list that was challenging for 5th graders, so let's be real! But we are proud of her for winning the grade level spelling bee anyway!
