Longfellow Middle School is located in Falls Church, Virginia. It has been the winner of the state tournament 14 times, starting a streak in 2006 and only interrupted in 2011 that continues to this day. The team routinely participate in the Lanier Invitational and Kenston Invitational, as well as recently taking part in the NCS Invitational. They were unable to attend the 2018 Kenston Invitational due to the risk of travel brought by Winter Storm Hunter. In 2019, again, they were unable to attend, as this invitational was cancelled due to inclement weather.
In 2020, the team decided to participate in other invitationals. From the discontinuation of the Lanier Invitational, Longfellow instead went to the Lake Braddock Invitational. For the first time, they also went to the Rustin Invitational in Pennsylvania and the Harvard Invitational, competing against other nationally-ranked teams.
