Jack Dugoni, of Our Lady of Angels, the 2013 Burlingame Citywide Spelling Bee Champion speller, with Elaine Chen from Lincoln Elementary, right, and third place winner Rebekah Coleman from McKinley Elementary. Dugoni and his teammates, Brendan Bhatnagar and Jack Hansen, gave Our Lady of Angels the privilege of keeping the Lions Trophy this year. The 2013 Burlingame Citywide Spelling Bee was held at the Lions Hall April 17. The seven elementary schools in Burlingame sent a team of three students to represent their school in the competition. Students from Franklin, Lincoln, McKinley, Roosevelt, Washington, Our Lady of Angels and St. Catherine of Siena competed. Wordmaster Leonard Froomin presented the words to the students and, if requested, a definition, the derivation, and its use in a sentence. The student team from Our Lady of Angels prevailed this year. The two words that champion Dugoni needed to spell to win were “collaborate” and “condense.”
