Special Awards

The Bacchus Marsh Little Athletics Centre provides a number of memorial and special awards to athletes within the Centre. There are varying criteria for these awards and the information below seeks to ensure that a degree of consistency is maintained with respect to these special trophies

TROY LORENSINI AWARD (Sportsmanship)

This award was first presented at the conclusion of the 1996/97 season. The trophy is a perpetual trophy and is donated by Annette Cosgrove in memory of her son, Troy Lorensini, who was 21 years old when he was tragically killed in an accident. Troy had been a member of Bacchus Marsh Little Athletics Centre and Eagles Club, beginning as an Under 6 and going through to Under 15. He was the recipient of many club trophies including Junior Boy Champion, Most Consistent, Most Improved and Senior Boy Champion. He was awarded the Centre Senior Boy Champion trophy in the 1988/89 season.

This award is presented to acknowledge outstanding sportsmanship by an athlete within our Centre. During the course of the season officials are able to nominate athletes whom they believe have displayed outstanding sportsmanship. Nomination forms will be provided to officials as required. Towards the end of the season these nominations will be forwarded to Mrs. Annette Cosgrove (Troy’s mother) and also a Life Member of this centre, or her nominee to select the winner of this award. The award will then be presented on Championship Day.

JIM LILBURNE AWARD (100m sprinter)

The Lilburne Family requested that a perpetual trophy be presented in memory of Jim who passed away in 1999.

Jim enjoyed and excelled at a number of sports and was a great sportsman, he played football for Maddingly football Club, was a member of the CFA running team, a cyclist and a great runner winning the Bacchus Marsh Gift in 1951.

He was a member of the original committee in 1969 that was formed following the decision to open a Little Athletics Centre in Bacchus Marsh and he held the position of Technical Requirements on that first committee. Things were different in those days, as equipment was stored at the High School in Maddingly and competition was at Darley Park, part of Jim’s job was to transport that equipment back and forth on a Saturday morning.

Jim served Bacchus Marsh Little Athletics Centre, Eagles Club, and Western Metropolitan Region over a span of 27 years.

This trophy has been presented to commemorate the contribution made by Jim to help the children of Bacchus Marsh.
