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 nine national titles, making them one of the most competitive schools in the entire nation. The school previously held the Booth Invitational annually through 2014, and also attended Solon Invitational and Wright State Invitational in the past. Despite their perennial attendance at nationals, McIntosh High School (which J.C Booth feeds into) has not been as successful as of late. In 2015 Booth discontinued their team, but reformed it for 2016. They have continued to qualify for state, but have not been as successful.
Booth has won the Nationals title a record nine times in 1996-2001, 2003-2004, and 2006. Booth qualified for every national tournament from 1990 to 2014. Furthermore, Booth has amassed a record 20 state titles in a nearly continuous streak from 1992-1999 and from 2003-2014.
Prior to 2001, the old scoring system was in use at Nationals; higher scores were more desirable. The system changed multiple times, with the place that received one point for the team score becoming a lower place each time (for example, in 1993 1st place in an event got 10 points for the team, while in 1994 the team would earn 25 points).
|2015||Did not compete|
- 1 A scoring error was discovered after the 2013 National Tournament. As a result, J.C. Booth Middle School was awarded 12th place instead of 15th along with Dodgen Middle School and no school was awarded 15th place.
