The “Spells Belles” correctly spelled the word “schnauzer” to win the competition, which featured six teams this year.

Jaimie Heacock and Leah Pratt, both of Martinsville, were the second-place winners. Their team name was called “Thelma and Louise.”

MCCL Executive Director David Reddick said proceeds from the event will be used to help MCCL tutors work with individuals lacking basic literacy skills, those wanting to learn English as a second language or individuals preparing to take high school equivalency tests.

“Our fundraising efforts also have enabled us to provide new books to Churches in Mission families and those attending the Santa Train Ride event in Morgantown,” Reddick added.

Refreshments for the event were provided by Knead the Dough Bakery of Martinsville and Anderson Orchard of Mooresville.
