PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman is heading to Las Vegas to compete for the title of America's fastest grocery bagger.
WBTS-LD reports Alysha Orrok recently won the New Hampshire bagging competition. She will face off against America's best during the national competition in February for a $10,000 prize.
The Portsmouth teacher pulls night and weekend shifts at a Hannaford Supermarket. She says she wasn't always this good. The quick-handed pro says she dropped a soda that exploded everywhere during her first day.
Expert-level bagging requires a unique set of skills. Competitors are judged on multiple factors including speed, weight distribution, appearance and technique.
Orrok's customers are confident in their bagger's skills.
