PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth High School Spell Bowl team is heading for state competition Saturday, Nov. 13, at Purdue.
The team, coached by PHS English teacher Amy Schmeltz, accumulated the third highest score in the state in regional competition for its class.
â€śIâ€™ve never coached a team before. I couldnâ€™t be more pleased with their progress,â€ť Schmeltz said.
The Spell Bowl differs slightly from the traditional spelling bee in that the contestants write out the words rather than spelling them verbally.
