    The team with most scores is pronounced the winner.
    This phrase caught my eye. My first though was - it's a mistake, should be "announced the winner".
    A brief google search did not return many results, but some of them look pretty reliable.

    Is the phrase correct?

    It is correct.

    See definition #2 at pronounce
    ... declare or announce.
