St. John’s College Claims Victory at the 33rd Annual Annapolis Cup

Before a crowd of approximately 5,000 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.
