On November 8, West Genesee Middle School students Cooper Corcoran and James (Jamie) O’Donnell came in first and second place, respectively, as they faced-off spelling such words as “peripheral” and “porcelain” in the West Genesee Spelling Bee.

West Genesee will send 12 students to join others from Central New York for a written test. The top 35 spellers from that round will compete in The Post-Standard WCNY Spelling Bee oral spell-down in January.
