For the first time in 52 years, there were two cham­pi­ons when the 87th Scripps Na­tion­al Spelling Bee ended at Na­tion­al Har­bor, Md. Four­teen-year-old Sri­ram Hath­war of Painted Post, N.Y., and 13-year-old An­sun Su­joe of Fort Worth, Texas, ex­hausted the judges’ at­tempts to knock them out. Each had one mis­spelled word, which came in the same round, for­cing the com­pet­i­tion to con­tin­ue un­til there were no words left.
