CHS accounting team wins back-to-back state championship

The Cleburne High School Accounting Team has returned from the UIL state academic contest with the championship — again.

Accounting team members Kendall Reynolds, Scarlet Doty, Anthony Saldaña and Fabian Razo finished in the first place position as the 2013 defending champions and extended Cleburne’s record to 11 consecutive years appearing and placing at the state level.

In individual scoring, Razo, in his first year on the team after spending 2013 in the alternate position, was the silver medal winner. Doty placed fifth, Reynolds, sixth and Saldaña, eighth. Also making the trip to Austin for the state contest were team alternates Jacob Smith and Victoria Childress. 

Razo was also the individual silver medalist at the regional contest, where Cleburne finished in the number one spot. Cleburne won the District championship as well.

“It felt really good when I found out how I had finished,” said Razo, a CHS junior. “When we walked out of the testing room I was worried because I had left two answers blank. At regionals, I walked out super confident, but this test was definitely harder — which is how it should be when you’re competing at the state level.

“I have really been happy being a part of the team this year. I was grateful to be the team alternate last year, until we got to state. I sat through that awards ceremony knowing it would be a year before I would be a competing member of the team. But that was also a motivator.”

This was Saldaña’s second year to compete in UIL accounting. He said the team was confident going into the state contest, noting their confidence was backed by lots of preparation.

“I felt good before the test,” he said. “But afterwards — it was very hard. We were thinking we had a good shot at getting a medal, but we weren’t certain who would get first place.
