Annual St. Johns/USNA Croquet Match
The "Johnnies" and the "Mids" vie for the coveted Annapolis Cup during this annual rite of spring. The croquet match brings together two starkly different institutions for an event Sports Illustrated says has "no parallel in intercollegiate sports." Attendees dress "Great Gatsby"-style while enjoying a lavish lawn party that includes serenades by the St. John's Freshman Chorus and swing music provided by the Naval Academy's Trident Brass Band. The "Johnnies" play in different "uniforms" each year - ranging from camouflage khakis, to U.S. Naval Academy imitation Crackerjack, to Vikings' attire, to bare feet. The "Mids" follow the United States Croquet Association dress code.
