Friday 14 May 2021

The following highlights from the College's various sports clubs and teams were compiled from recent reports. If you have a result that you'd like to feature in the next round-up, please contact


Nick Palmer (2017, Engineering) came second in a single scull in the St Radegund mile on 9 May. He was the fastest college single of the day, which included a 1km course for less experienced rowers and novices (between the top of the Long Reach and finishing at Peter’s Posts) and a 2km course for more experienced rowers (between the A14 bridge and the railway bridge). 

Men’s Football

The Plate quarter-finals were played last weekend and St Catharine’s secured a 4-2 away win at Peterhouse. The College will join Downing, Gonville & Caius and Darwin in the semi-finals. (Varsity)

Mixed Hockey

A “sensational” performance in the second week of Cuppers delivered a 8-3 victory against our neighbours at King’s. (The Kittbag)

Men’s Cricket

College cricket returned for the first time since 2019 and St Catharine’s took on Sidney Sussex in the first round of Cuppers. “Constant pressure from our bowlers” and a “blistering” 56 not out from Daniel McCurley (2020, Human, Social & Political Sciences) steered St Catharine’s to a comfortable eight-wicket victory.

Women’s Netball

Despite being a friendly match, it is definitely worth mentioning the performance of the women’s netball team, who achieved a final score of 23-5 against Pembroke last weekend. (The Kittbag)
