Montgomery High School, in Skillman NJ, is a New Jersey C Division school with nine State titles, tied with West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South for the most of any Division C Team in NJ. Its highest placement at Nationals is 13th. From 1997-2001, Montgomery Township School district perennially sent both its middle school and high school to Nationals. However, in 2006, a new contender, West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South, defeated Montgomery HS, and began a period of dominance that continues today. Despite this, Montgomery continues to be a contender for the State title, consistently placing Top 4 at the State Competition. Its feeder school is the Division B Montgomery Middle School.

On January 31st 2015, MHS hosted it's first and New Jersey's first practice tournament, Cougar Invitational, which saw a turnout of 24 teams. MHS will be hosting Cougar Invitational again this year and is expecting a larger number of participating teams. The website can be found here: [2]
