The Robert A. Taft Middle School Team had one goal this year… One team, One dream, Win State. On Saturday, November 12th the team fought to make that dream a reality. It was a tough battle, uphill at times, but in the end they finished 3rd in State in the Junior Division. This is the best finish in the history of the school. It was truly a team effort, led by Team Captain, Matthew Gerona. Although the team took home third place, instead of first, the joy in their eyes and the smiles on their faces showed the excitement of their hard work and success. This team of sixteen sixth, seventh, and eighth grade spellers who worked together for the past three months, pushing each other to become better, and supporting one another along the way. Congratulations!
