AP Richelle Zampella, 12, of Muskogee correctly spells “capricious” Wednesday during the second round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Oxon Hill, Md. Even after correctly spelling words in the second and third rounds, Muskogee’s Richelle Zampella did not make it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee semifinals. Richelle, a fifth-grader at Oklahoma School for the Blind, correctly spelled “trianon” in the third round, said OSB spelling bee coordinator Cindy Lumpkin. However, bee officials also consider scores in a preliminary computer round, which tests vocabulary as well as spelling, to decide the semifinalists, Lumpkin said. She said 41 contestants made the semifinal round.
