Kennedy Middle School is a Division B team in Northern California in the Santa Clara region located in Cupertino, CA. Kennedy currently fields three teams: Kennedy Gold(A team), Kennedy White(B team), and Kennedy Blue(C team),however, they do not have any tryouts for the team, and the final team is presumably made of the best 15 students after invitationals. Kennedy goes to 4-5 invitationals per year to maximize the amount of practice they get.
Kennedy is one of the top teams in the nation and especially in Northern California, being able to consistently place at top 2 at NorCal states since 2013. They have qualified for states every year since 2012. In 2018, Kennedy finally made it to nationals after placing second to Winston Churchill Middle School for the past few years, and placed 4th in their debut, which is a very high placing for a first-time nationals team. They returned to nationals in 2019 and won, setting a record for the best score in the national tournament.
Kennedy feeds into Monta Vista High School.
