State Tournament Location Indiana University Bloomington


The state is home to two-time national champion Thomas Jefferson Middle School, which won in 1993 and 1996.

Thomas Jefferson Middle School has dominated the B division for most of its existence, though Batchelor and Ben Franklin have been known to make runs in the past, while Stanley Clark and Wilbur Wright have been rising new challengers in recent years.

In division C, Bloomington High School North, Bloomington High School South and Valparaiso High School have programs with an extensive and superior history, all 4 placing without fail in the top 6 at the state competition for the past 20 years. Other historically strong programs include Carmel High School and North Central High School. In recent years several northern Indiana schools have become significant contenders, most notably Northridge High School and Munster High School - each of which have won a state championship.

In 2013 Munster High School dominated the state tournament winning by a record-breaking margin of 79 points under the 2nd place school (Bloomington High School North).
