Nine News Western Victoria attended the School on 28 November to highlight the success of the Bacchus Marsh Grammar Elite Sports Program and athletes who hold scholarships jointly with BMG and FedUni WestVic Academy of Sport.

Representing Channel 9 were Reporter Joseph Ogilvie and Camera Operator Adam Bath who met with our athletes Ronan Keleher 10G, Elizabeth Nuspan 11G and Graeme Frislie 11C.
