MT PERRY State School’s sportsper­son of the year, Bai­ley Nicholson, scooped up an ex­tra award on Mon­day.

Bai­ley took home the Ju­nior Sports Award at the Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions.

The keen sports­man rep­re­sented his school at dis­trict level for shot-put, and for Gin Gin in ju­nior rugby league.

A man of few words, Bai­ley said he was proud to win the ac­co­lade and planned to con­tinue his sport­ing prow­ess at Gin Gin State High School this year.

His mother, Maryann, said dur­ing the footy sea­son, they took Bai­ley to Bund­aberg twice a week.

When her two older sons – now aged 22 and 20 – were com­pet­ing in hockey and foot­ball, the fam­ily clocked up to 1000km a week on the road.
