Coronado High hosts Texas Academic Decathlon Tournament

Hundreds of students from throughout the state will be at Coronado High School starting today and through Sunday morning to participate in the 2017 Texas Academic Decathlon State Meet.

The school is located on 100 Champions Place, on the city’s west side.

Teams from high schools will participate in over two days in ten categories: art, economics, essay, interview, language and literature, math, music, science, social science and speech. Students of all skill levels and academic backgrounds compete.

“EPISD is happy to host this important tournament. It gives our students exposure to high-caliber tournaments and it also gives our teams a home-field advantage,” said Carolyn Mackey, EPISD’s coordinator of academic competitions. “Coronado will be buzzing with activity all day Friday and all day Saturday.”

Activity ends at 10 p.m. on Friday. Student competition resumes at 9:05 a.m. on Saturday and runs through around 4 p.m. The awards ceremony is slated for 9 a.m. Sunday morning at the Coronado fine arts auditorium.
