Henrico student finishes 7th in Scripps National Spelling Bee


Moody Middle School sixth-grader Tejas Muthusamy finished seventh in the Scripps National Spelling Bee last night – one spot better than last year, when he finished eighth in the event.

In order to advance to last night's finals, Muthusamy correctly spelled "credenza," "castalia," "saxaul" and "symblepharon" during earlier competitions Thursday. During the 10-person finals, televised Thursday night by ESPN, Muthusamy correctly spelled "billiken," a comic figure used as a mascot, but then was eliminated when he misspelled "Tartarean," an adjective referring to Tartarus, a deep abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering in Greek mythology. He spelled the word with an "i" instead of an "e."

Only two students have won the Henrico countywide spelling bee in the past seven years – Muthusamy the past two years and Aditya Kannoth the five years prior to that.
