A 3-PEAT

Filed at 7:30 am under by dcobranchi

HEK Melanie Due won her county spelling bee for the 3rd year running.

For Melanie Due, three really is a lucky number.

She won the Grand Forks County spelling bee for the third year in a row Friday, which means she’ll be making her third trip to compete in the North Dakota Spelling Bee.

Due, who was the 2005 state champion, is the third sister in her family to win the Grand Forks County Spelling Bee, to be a state champion speller and to advance to the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.

She has followed in the steps of her sisters, Karen Due, the 2000 state winner, and Hannah Due, the 2003 state winner.

Those damn homeschoolers and their unfair advantage. Nice job.
