Perfect Sunshine Coast winter weather greeted competitors and supporters at Coolum Primary School’s senior sports day last Friday.

The competition was tight throughout the day, with the lead changing several times.

Records tumbled, with Misha Osborn breaking the 11 years girls’ shot put with 8.38 metres and Tenille Roots clocking 3.02.65 for the 10 years girls’ 800 metres.

Another record to go was the decibel mark when it was announced that Ninderry had won for the first time since 2002, followed closely by Cooloola on 266 points, with Peregian (198) and Marutchi (196) not far behind.

Principal Pat Cavanagh said he was impressed by the way students had competed with “great vigour and true sportsmanship”.
