Mo. spelling bee hits snag, runs out of words

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Two Missouri students who went toe-to-toe for 66 rounds in the annual Jackson County spelling bee aren't quite finished after event organizers ran out of words for the contest.

The Kansas City Star  reports 25 students started the championship round Saturday, but only two remained after 19 rounds.

From there, fifth-grader Sophia Hoffman of Lee's Summit and Kush Sharma, a seventh-grader from Kansas City, buzzed through the list of words provided by the national bee, as well as 20 others plucked from the dictionary.

At about 2 p.m. -- five hours after the contest started -- bee officials decided not to pull more words from the dictionary and instead decided to continue the competition March 8 at an undetermined library location.
