WASHINGTON, May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Washington, DC student Thomas Draper and his NJ-based partner Sam Masling lead the field of 200 4th-8th graders competing for the $10,000 top prize at the 2013 National School SCRABBLE Championship.  Masling and Draper are 3-0 with a +488 point spread.  They are followed by Calvin Wagner and Sam Radack from Deal Middle School in DC.  Rounding out the top three, also 3-0 with a +389 point spread, are North Carolina brothers Eric and Kenny Hoang.  The event is at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park.
