St. John’s College emerges victorious again in the Annapolis Cup

| April 26, 2015, 01:34 PM | 0 Comments

Annapolis Cup (Croquet 2014)Before a crowd of more than 4,500 spectators on the St. John’s College campus, the St. John’s croquet team reclaimed the Annapolis Cup on Saturday, April 18, besting the U.S. Naval Academy with a 3-2 victory. Thwarting a potential third consecutive victory for the Midshipmen, bringing home the trophy had special meaning for the Johnnies. “It’s about becoming the best again,” says St. John’s Imperial Wicket Samuel Collins, a senior from Bucks County, Pa. who led his team to its 26th win since the contest began 33 years ago.

The annual croquet match is a springtime reunion that brings together students and alumni from two starkly different institutions as well as spectators who don elaborate fashions reminiscent of the stylish characters depicted in period dramas such as “Downton Abbey” and “Pride and Prejudice.” Per tradition, ladies topped with wide-brimmed hats and gentlemen adorned with festive bow ties enjoyed an old-fashioned community event that included lavish picnics, swing dancing, and an afternoon of merriment in the heart of historic Annapolis.
