Mourilyan State School Inter-house Sports Day awards

20/August/2021
Dolphins captains, Amity, Hunter, and Rainey accepted the Mourilyan Bakery Inter-house trophy on behalf of the victorious Dolphins team.

PERFECT weather prevailed for Mourilyan State School’s Inter-house Sports Day held last term and all students put in their best effort in every event.

Several school records tumbled on the day, as Braxton finished with a time of 2:48 and broke the 800m record of 3:01, set 24 years ago by K. Haxel and T. Vanzella in 1997. 

In the Boys 9 Years 80m (11:65), Braxton broke the previous record of 12:44 set by Chris Cook in 2017 and set a record in Long Jump (3.80m) of 3.47m previously held by Colby Aldridge in 2013. 

Marlion broke the record in Long Jump (4.30m), previously set by Colby Aldridge (3.93m) in 2015, whilst Denan broke the 800m record (2:34) previously set by J Calleja (2.43) in 2005.

After the points were tallied, the Dolphins were the overall winning team on the day, with the Sharks putting up a big fight.

A special parade was recently held at the school, where teams dressed in their sports colours and performed their war cries.
