San Antonio girl wins National Spelling Bee title
OXON HILL, Md. (AP) – At this year’s national spelling bee, Harini Logan turned out to be the real comeback kid. And her comeback saw her come back from being eliminated, then reinstated – and finally to winning the bee in its first-ever lightning-round tiebreaker.
Logan has long been seen as one of the nation’s best spellers – but until now she’d never won a national title.
A title appeared to elude her again after she was ousted in a multiple-choice vocabulary round.
But after an appeal, the judges ruled the definition she gave was correct – and she was returned to the competition.
