The Riverton Parke Jr.-Sr. High School Spell Bowl team captured first place in the 2016 area Indiana Academic Spell Bowl contest at Woodrow Wilson Middle School on Nov. 1.

The Panthers took first among Class 4 schools with a score of 28 and ranked 5th in the overall competition.

“I’m very proud of the team,” Harmon said. “We spent a lot of time studying (team members cover 1,661 words), and this goes to show that hard work pays off.”
