Alaina Kenny??s star is rising here in Syracuse thanks to her success in the National Spelling Bee.
That is especially true among her teammates.
Members of the Westhill-Ludden Track and Field team, which Alaina has been a member of for two years, cheer her on as she spells one of her words correctly during the preliminary round of the National Spelling Bee.
The Westhill-Ludden girls were recently crowned Sectional Champs. The video was shot by the coach.
Onondaga Hill Middle Schooler Alaina and Dylan O-Connor, of the Watertown area, are both representing Central and Northern New York in the semifinal round of the National Spelling Bee.
