WASHINGTON - Two young Oklahomans just missed the semifinals of the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee Wednesday despite not missing a single word on stage.
Richelle Zampella, a sixth grader from Oklahoma School for the Blind in Muskogee, and Cole Shafer-Ray, a sixth grader from Norman's Alcott Middle School, both sailed through the first three rounds Tuesday and Wednesday, but failed to have their number called.
