Could Nash Martinez of Willis Jepson Middle School be considered the Stephen Curry of Vacaville spellers? He already knows something about back-to-back championships.
Nash was the winner in the middle school division of the Vacaville Rotary Club’s Grace B. Powell Citywide Spelling Bee, held Wednesday at Will C. Wood High School’s Catwalk Theatre. He had previously won in the elementary competition last year as a student at Alamo Elementary School.
This year, the top elementary honor went to Cooper student Olivia Minashiro, who bested nearly 50 other students at her grade level.
