LeeAnn Jose wins the Regional Spelling Bee on Saturday

Bo Jackson knows sports, but Joses know spelling.
Joey Jose captured one title in 2005. His younger brother, George Jose, retained the Lima regional spelling bee crown three times inn 2007, 2009 and 2010. Now the crown has been defended by LeeAnn Jose, who won the title for her first time in 2011, won again Saturday at Rhodes State College.
For the sixth time in eight years, one of the Joses captured the Lima regional bee after winning in their hometown, Wapakoneta, prior to the competition.
On Saturday, LeeAnn Jose won by spelling “leechcraft” correctly, besting 30 competitors from six different counties. Leechcraft is the art of healing.
The event is sponsored by the Lima News.
