National Spelling Bee 2009: Round 10

Get ready for some impossible words—if not in this round, then very soon.

Ramya Auroprem
muscles through iliopsoas—excellent!

Kyle Mou spells oeillade in the wink of an eye.

Aishwarya Pastapur seems to run into trouble with xebec but sails away with it and advances Scrabble in the process.

Kennyi Aoaud spells relief g-r-i-s-a-i-l-l-e.

Kavya Shivashankar
continued to blossom with huisache. I almost spelled it correctly myself!

Anamika Veeramani is super-smooth with Neufchâtel.

Tim Ruiter cottoned to cretonne—at least his second "cotton" word.

Might as well take note here that the sample sentences are funnier than usual. Broadway influence.
