Rapelje is king of Stillwater County. At least when it comes to this year’s spelling bee.

Rapelje’s Axel Blodgett lasted seven rounds before winning on the word “sojourner,” according to Stillwater County Schools Superintendent John Smith. Coming in second was Park City’s Shannon Orth, who will serve as the alternate. The state spelling bee will take place in Bozeman on March 14.
