About the Victorian School Sports Awards

The 2020 Victorian School Sports Awards, which recognise excellence across all categories of major school sports, were announced on Friday 26 March 2021.

A total of 20 awards – including 14 Sporting Blue Awards – were presented to recognise government school students who excelled in their chosen sport, and to teachers who made an outstanding contribution to school sport in 2020.

Australian world champion distance and marathon runner Steve Moneghetti AM facilitated the awards ceremony, while other presenters included paralympian Jaryd Clifford and Australian Football League Women’s (AFLW) player Libby Birch. The ceremony was attended by 160 guests.

Sporting excellence on show

Among the 20 award recipients were rising table tennis star, Lucas Lum from Glendal Primary School, and dancer Tara Bajan from McKinnon Secondary College. Both were presented with Outstanding Sporting Achievement Awards for their exceptional commitment to their sporting pursuits in 2020.

Hockey player, umpire and coach, Millicent Castor from Blackburn High School, was also recognised for her contribution to school and community sport. She was presented with the Lindsay Gaze Outstanding Sports Leadership Award.
