Twelve spellers from around the Crossroads are prepared to wage war over words for the chance to be crowned the 2012 Regional Spelling Bee Champion.

For the next six days, we will feature, in all their glory, the co-champions from participating counties.

First up are Victoria County's co-champions - Our Lady of Victory's Andrew Bernhard and DeLeon Elementary's Therese Eamiguel.

Both are spelling bee veterans, with Andrew clenching last year's championship, and Therese representing her school at last year's county championship.

The Regional Spelling Bee premieres at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Victoria College's Johnson Symposium, 2200 E. Red River St.
