J.C. Booth Middle School is a very successful school which competes in the Division B in Georgia. They are the most successful team in the state, and lay claim to eight national titles, making them one of the most competitive schools in the entire nation. The school used to hold an invitational every year, and also attends the Solon Middle School invitational annually. Despite their perennial attendance at nationals, McIntosh High School (which J.C Booth feeds into) has not been as successful as of late.
