Souderton’s Academic Decathlon Team Wins State Crown

A national championship is the next goal for the academic decathlon team.

Souderton Area High School has Championship brain power after its academic decathlon team captured the state title last weekend at Clarion University. Souderton Academic Decathlon Coach Phil Cerami says, the Souderton team started in 2013.

“We’ve been pushing the envelope to win the state title the past couple of years. We were finally able to beat 14 other schools from around the state that were division winners and wild card teams.”

9 team members will now look to bring home a national title when they travel to Dallas, Texas April 18 to April 22nd.
Cerami says, Africa was the subject in the state finals and it will be the topic of competition in Dallas.
