Kingsley Junior High School is a public school in Normal, Illinois that opened in 2003. It was used as Normal Community High School until they moved across town in 2003. The mascot is the Cavaliers and the school colors are orange and black. They have won one state title in 8th Grade Volleyball in 2006 and the 2007 8th Grade Basketball team were the runner-ups in the State Tournament. The 2008 8th Grade Girls Cross Country team also made it to State. The 2008 6th and 7th Grade Girls Basketball team were the runner-ups in the State Tournament. In 2009 the 8th Grade Girls Basketball team placed 4th in state. Their cheerleading and poms team are well known as well. The poms team placed 7th in the nation after competing in Orlando, Florida for the U.D.A. National Championship 2010. In the 2010-2011 school year, Kingsley had their 8th grade boys baseball team get 3rd in state. The 7th grade girls basketball team won the state championship. Next to continue, the boys 7th grade basketball team also won the state title. Finally, the 8th grade boys basketball team won the state championship and gave Kingsley the record for most state championships in basketball for one year. In the 2011-2012 school season, the 7th grade girls basketball team won 2nd in the state tournament, and the 8th grade girls earned back to back state titles as the 2011 champions. The 8th grade boys have a chance for repeat titles as well, as they return to once again meet up with Bolingbrook Jane Adams for a repeat championship game match up to take home the 1st place title again. But now that the state championship is over, we can proudly announce that KJHS 8th grade boys basketball DID win 1st in the state.
