A Pacelli 8th grader will be heading to Washington, D.C. to take part in the 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Shane Desilva took home top honors Tuesday on the regional level. It was the longest tournament southeast Minnesota has seen, going more rounds than ever before.

Shane's winning word was polymythy. Polymythy is the inclusion of many or several stories or plots in one narrative or dramatic work.Shane says, "Most of the time, it ends really fast, but the second place did really really good. I don't know how many we spelled."

The 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee is at the end of May.
