Montgomery Middle School is a school located in Montgomery Township (Skillman, Belle Mead, Princeton), New Jersey. Montgomery Middle School has won seven state titles, the second most of any Division B team in NJ. After 2001, they have consistently placed 2nd at the State Competition, losing to two-time National Champion West Windsor-Plainsboro Community Middle School. They went to Nationals from 1993-2001 and in 2007, placing as high as 15th in the nation. The school feeds into Division C powerhouse Montgomery High School. From 1997-2001, Montgomery Township School District sent both its high school and middle school to Nationals, representing New Jersey in both Divisions. In 2005, the team missed qualifying for Nationals by a mere four points, the same year that West-Windsor Plainsboro Community MS won Nationals. In 2007, the team lost by only twelve points, but qualified for Nationals due to teams withdrawing. That same year Community won Nationals again, and Montgomery MS earned its best results at Nats: 15th Place overall along with several individual event gold medals.
