Finley School seventh-grader Axelle LaBaw finished in 12th place at the 2015 Hofstra Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee on Feb. 8.

LaBaw was entered into the competition after winning Finley’s annual spelling bee in January. During the school competition, LaBaw faced six other finalists in grades 6-8, who were selected through team-level spelling bees. LaBaw secured her win by spelling “totalitarian” correctly.
