The Chico State women's rugby club hosted a scrimmage against U-C Santa Cruz.
The Wildcats finished second in league last year and made it to the playoffs, but were eliminated in the first round
This year, the club is hoping to build from that experience and go much further.
Chico State Women's Rugby Coach Mary Triantafyllou says, "We have alot of new players we're at about 40 on our roster which is huge for us. We usually have a roster of about 25, we have a lot of talent we did not lose a lot of players last year so we have a lot lot veterans returning and we're mixing that in with a lot of talented rookies."
The Chico State women's rugby club will play next week during the Chico Holiday Classic.
They start league play in February.
