He says he knew all the words,except the one he missed. Chesterfield middle-school student Rajiv Tarigopula has finished fourth in the National Spelling Bee for the second year in a row. Tarigopula had spent the day spelling words many of us could not even pronounce before falling out of the competition on “heiligenschein,” (HILE-ig-en-shine), a German word. He thinks he’s done with spelling competitions now. He says he plans to play soccer and tennis in High School next year.
