Ursula Rauter Trophy for Boys and Liz Clarke Trophy for Girls
The Ursula Rauter trophy was established in 1992 to commemorate Ursula’s memory and in recognition of her contribution to junior areas within the club. Liz Clarke, a close friend of Ursula’s, was the main instigator of the trophy.
Liz Clark also had a very strong commitment to youth development both within the club and also in the local community. She was a board member and our first female club president from 1989 – 1991 and made an invaluable contribution to the club from 1985 until her death in 1994.
The Award criteria was reviewed in 2014 and now the Ursula Rauter trophy for boys and the Liz Clarke trophy for girls are awarded to the male and female swimmers who achieve the best swimming performance at the Victorian Long Course Championships in 11/under events based on gold, silver and bronze medals and final placings if required.
