Graymont Grade School fielded a number of very good boys junior high basketball teams in the late 1980s. Under the direction of head coach Tom Meling, the Warriors won Arrow Conference titles in 1987-88, 1988–89 and 1989-90. The 1988-89 team was the greatest in school history. Despite an eighth grade class of six students, the Warriors finished as Livingston County Runner-Ups, Arrow Conference Champions, 1A Regional Champions, 1A Sectional Champions and they advanced to the Elite Eight in State. The starting five on that team comprised Mike Cushing, Matt DeWald, Roger Bedeker, Seth Sarakaitis and Wade Ahrens. The Elite Eight banner still resides in the cafeteria/gym at the school.
