Team History

The Henderson High school team has existed since at least the early 1990s. Henderson soley played on poor quality local questions until 2009. Prior to this period, Henderson had little on the buzzer sucess (with just one championchip in the county format), but produced several players of the year.

Under the tutelage of coach Steve Sobieck, the team began to play good tournaments starting with PHSAT and CSWIFT. After a period of mixed focus on local and pyramidal quizbowl, the team has focused solely on the pyramidal circuit. They have been a mid range power in Philadelphia area high school quizbowl since that time, although until late 2015 they had never won an all-subject tournament. This first win occurred with the team rallying for a 260 point comeback against Cedar Crest in the finals at Manheim Township's winter invitational. They have also frequently competed at National History Bee and Bowl events. To date Henderson's A teams have never had a losing season. They made their national's debut at HSNCT in 2016 where they tied for 34th place and finished 2nd among PA teams attending the tournament.
