Ames High School is a Division C school which qualified for the 2016 National competition at the Iowa 2016 state competition. They have represented Iowa very year since 1994, which was the first year Iowa sent a team to the national finals. This marks a 23-year reign, which is the longest high school reign in the nation.

Despite their consistency at the state level, their performance at nationals has varied. Early on, the team struggled at nationals, never placing above 36th. Then, in 2002, they finished above 30th for the first time, and they did not dip below this mark for 7 more years. They showed signs of becoming a legitimate force with 17th and 16th place finishes in 2006 and 2007, respectively. However, they have not performed as well since then, dipping down to 50th in 2012.
