Leandra Larson wins HMS geography bee championship
Leandra Larson said she was "surprised" when she won the Hastings Middle School Geography Bee last Thursday morning.
"I thought Krista (Gomez) would win -- she came in second last year," said Larson. Gomez also finished as the runner-up this year.
As the two finalists this year, Larson and Gomez each answered the same three written questions about countries, lakes, parks and trails. Larson had all three right; Gomez missed one.
