Lodi and Manteca Spelling Bee winners

Two San Joaquin spelling bees were held this week in the Lodi and Manteca school districts.

On Wednesday in Lodi, Lawrence Elementary sixth-grader Martiza De Jesus took first place. Her winning word was “tranquilizer.”

On Thursday in Manteca, three winners of two divisions were named.

For the fourth- through-fifth grade division, Walter Woodward fifth-grader Nolan Marley, Joshua Cowell fifth-grader Christine Nguyen and Neil Hafley fourth-grader Marlon Montano won.

In the seventh-through-ninth grade division, Brock Elliot eighth-grader Melanie Nguyen, George Komure seventh-grader Trinity Hillyard and Nile Garden eighth-grader Jillian Urbano took the top prize.

The State Spelling Bee Competition will be held in the spring.
