Rising Starr Middle School is a Division B school from the state of Georgia. The team has qualified for Nationals nine times (1999-2006 and 2008). They are the only team to defeat J.C. Booth Middle School at the state tournament between 1992 and 2014, which they accomplished in 2002 before going on to win the national tournament. The team entered a period of decline after their national tournament win; they have not qualified for the national tournament since 2008, and failed to qualify for the state tournament from 2015-2017. However, in 2018 they won their regional tournament and finished in 11th at State.
