The Henrico County Public Schools Divisionwide Spelling Bee crowned a familiar champion this week, and he defeated someone pretty familiar to him.

Moody Middle School sixth-grader Tejas Muthusamy, who won the bee last year and went on to finish eighth in the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C, claimed the title again this year by defeating his younger brother, Shreyas, a fourth-grader at Shady Grove Elementary School.

Shreyas Muthusamy misspelled the word “irreconcilable,” which allowed his brother to win the be by correctly spelling the word “jurimetrician,” meaning a person who applies scientific methods to legal matters. > Read more.
