Graeme College is a very small school in comparison to some of the bigger schools we compete against on a yearly basis (320 boys from grade 8-12).
So far this season we have played 4 schools who at some time were in or around the top 10 in the country (Dale College, Kearsney College, Selborne College & or Grey High School PE).
A fairly tough start for most schools but even more so for a small school like us.
