MORRISTOWN – Three of OP’s lower school students participated in the annual

Consortium spelling bee at Delbarton. Three eighth graders participated in the varsity

contest – they were Joseph Cranley, Jake Nowacki, and Justin Oei – with Carlo Bueno

attending as the alternate. Mr. Kennedy served as chaperone. No Oratory students participated in

the Junior Varsity division of the competition, which was won by a student from Ridgedale Middle

School. Justin Oei was knocked out on the word “brethren,” while Jake

Nowacki and Joe Cranley were knocked out on the word “ubiquitous.” In the end, the varsity

division was won by Morristown Beard School. While we did not take home any medals,

it should be noted Cranley and Nowacki tied for fourth place.
