Welsh Valley Middle School is among the more competitive schools in Pennsylvania B Division, consistently placing within the top 10 at the state level. It competes in the southeastern region of Pennsylvania, and travels to Solon, Ohio to compete in the Solon Invitational every year. The school is in the same school district (Lower Merion School District) as Bala Cynwyd Middle School, Harriton High School and Lower Merion High School. The majority of students at Welsh Valley continue on to Harriton High School. The current and past coaches include Chris Lewis, Greg Gressel, John V'Soske, Sharon Schindler, Jason Gagliardi and others. Welsh Valley has made it to Nationals just once, in 2001, where it placed 11th overall. This is also the only time that Welsh Valley has won a state tournament.
