State spelling bee champion stunned by her victory

Leader Correspondent

WITTENBERG Spelling had been Katrina Shankland's least favorite subject.

Until Saturday, that is, when the Wittenberg-Birnamwood seventh grader won the 2000 State Spelling Bee in Verona.

"I can hardly believe it really happened," Katrina said.

Her dad Ron had pretty much the same kind of reaction to his daughter's win.

Milwaukee (39-39) entered the day a game behind eighth-place Orlando (39-39) in the Eastern Conference, but the Magic lost at Boston, 95-91.

The Bucks play at Orlando on April 17.

Florida pounds Milwaukee pitching

MILWAUKEE (AP) Not even field conditions more suitable to an icebox could keep the Florida Marlins from a convincing win.

Alex Gonzalez hit a two-run single and defensive replacements Derrek Lee and Danny Bautista homered as the Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 11-4 at frigid County Stadium on Wednesday night.

The temperature was 41 degrees at gametime, and it dropped precipitously as bitter winds whipped off Lake Michigan and turned the game into an endurance contest for the two teams.
