02 - 09 - 2012 Penns Valley students claim title in academic decathlon
(CDT) Penns Valley Area High School students sported bright blue T-shirts for an academic contest earlier this month. The front of the shirts read “I will crush you with my vast intellect!” The intimidation continues on the back. “Beware,” it says, “we have hearts of darkness.” Here’s another thing they have: Their 3rd district championship in a row. They won it earlier this month at Glendale Junior-Senior High School in Cambria Co. The Penns Valley team came home with 42 individual medals & 5 plaques for the overall top prize placement. Students picked up medals in every subject, but they had their best performance in the math competition, where seven of the 9 competitors medaled.
