Summer Intercol fixtures represent the enduring relationship between St Peter’s College and Prince Alfred College. It is a wonderful tradition of engagement in sport, first contested in 1871, that strengthens the sense of shared community between our two schools. Congratulations to all participants who represented their community with humility, integrity and respect both in and out of the arena.

St Peter’s College is grateful to our partners in providing the opportunity for so many students to participate over the full range of pursuits. Thank you to Headmaster, Mr David Roberts and his staff team for their efforts in preparing these fixtures and hospitality.

A brief summary of the 1st/Open Team fixtures of each sport can be found below:



Over the four days our 1st XI have played some excellent cricket against a talented opposition. Congratulations to PAC who secured a six wicket win to claim the 147th Cricket Intercol; the longest uninterrupted annual match in the history of cricket anywhere in the world. A highlight of the match was captain Noah’s 124 runs off 209 balls.

We are super proud of our players for their determined efforts across the match and season and thank the staff and families involved in the cricket program for their wonderful support.

Water Polo


Our Open A Water Polo team faced a strong and experienced opposition in the 14th Water Polo Intercol. Captain Michael (Year 12) kept us in the game early before PAC ran out winners 6-15.

The strong and loud supporters created an electric atmosphere throughout the Aquatic Centre.

Congratulations to all players and staff on a great season.



Congratulations to our Senior A team who secured a 9-3 win in the 34th Badminton Intercol. All four doubles were closely contested matches with SPSC taking a 3-1 lead into the singles. Our boys displayed great talent and sportsmanship in their singles, winning 6 out of 8 to secure the victory.

Well done to all players and thank you to the staff involved for your support of a great season.



Our SPSC team faced some tough competition in the 127th Tennis Intercol. Despite some close contests across the day the boys went down 9-3.

Well done to all players for displaying great sportsmanship and fighting spirit and thank you to the staff who have assisted throughout the season.



The 2nd Volleyball Intercol was a hotly contested match with strong support from our spectators. SPSC controlled the tempo from the outset, clinching victory in two sets 25-17, 25-20. The straight sets win doesn’t do justice to the effort and skill of our opposition who pushed everyone on the court to their limits.

All players and staff are to be congratulated on a great season.




The Swimming Intercol and final SAAS meet was contested in the Burchnall Sports Centre. Strong performances across the whole squad saw SPSC secure the 38th Intercol and place second in the SAAS Championship.

SAAS top 5 results were: Immanuel 1st 723 points, SPSC 2nd 711, Trinity 3rd 652, PAC 4th 620 and Sacred Heart 5th 524.

Congratulations to all competitors on a great season and well done to Max (Year 10), Alden (Year 10), Jack (Year 11), Dan (Year 11) and James (Year 12) who have qualified for the National Swimming Championship to be held on the Gold Coast in April.




Well done to our 26 crews who competed in the 102nd Head of the River. Across the regatta an impressive 15 wins were secured. For the first time in SA Head of the River history SPSC secured a ninth consecutive Gosse Shield with a win in the Schoolboy Eight. Brigette Carlile became the first female coach to take out the title. The win saw SPSC retain the Blackmore Shield for the Intercol competition.
