SPC University Challenge triumph

St Peter's is through to the second round of University Challenge after notching up an impressive victory over Pembroke College, Cambridge.

After a quick start by Pembroke, the St Peter's team fought back to take an impressive lead, closing at the gong with a total of 225 points to 50.

This year's appearance represents the third time that St Peter's have made it through to the broadcast stage of the show, and tonight's victory marks the first time they have made it through to the second round at the first attempt since the college's famous run to the semi-finals in 2015. The victory was watched by a packed JCR.

Congratulations to the 2018 team of Nick Williford, Laura Cooper, Sebastian Braddock and James Hodgson.
