Geoff Thevenot (Austin, TX) in The Austin Chronicle

Congratulations to Geoff Thevonot for winning The Austin Chronicle Adult Spelling Bee. The paper featured the competition in its sports column “Playing Through” by Thomas Hackett:

The Threadgill’s competition started with nearly 200 entrants. Each round cut the field roughly in half, until finally Thevenot was in a showdown with Dave Riddle, a lawyer from Pacific Grove, Calif. The word that tripped up Riddle was “onomatopoeically.” In case you’re wondering, that's spelled, “o-n-o-m-a-t-o-p-o-e-i-c-a-l-l-y.”

How do I know this? Because Geoff Thevenot said so.
