Johnnie’s Win Again!

Matched with the same weekend many celebrated the Royal Wedding, St. John’s College hosted the 29th Annual Annapolis Cup – a traditional croquet match between the U.S. Naval Academy (Mids) and St. John’s (Johnnies)! It was a beautiful day for a 1920’s themed croquet match – and the outfits were just as fabulous as always.

The tradition is rumored to have started in 1982 when the commandant of midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy told a Johnny that the “mids could beat them at any sport,” the St. John’s website states. It has continued ever since with the Johnnie’s winning for the 26th time!
