Known as 'The Geelong College Cup', this trophy was originally awarded to the Open Athletics Competition winner at the Annual School Sports and was one of the longest running trophies of the College’s history from 1868 to 2003.

The long standing award was given on the basis of aggregate points for a range of sporting events at the Annual Sports. In 1930 for example, it included the following events: 100yds race; 220yds race; 440yds race; 880 yds race; 1 mile race; high jump; long jump; 120 yds hurdles. After co-education it was awarded as the Boys Open Athletics Champion. In 2004, sporting competition awards were broadened to reflect the increasing number of sports and to equalise gender imbalance. The last year in which the College Cup was awarded was 2003.
