Albany - Can you spell Victory? Adam Bedingfield can. He took home first place in Friday's Dougherty County Spelling Bee.
Competition was tough, but in the end, it all came down to who would "Flourish" (that's the winning word). Adam said, "I just put my mind to it that I could win and I did."
His mom Lynette said, "as soon as he spelled his last word, flourish, correctly, I cried. I couldn't help it." Adam is 9 years old and a student at Northside Elementary school, he even beat middle school students to win the county spelling bee.
