Chico Men’s Rugby Tops Pacific North Division III
Chico Remains Undefeated in League
With only one match left in league play, the Chico Men’s Rugby team remains undefeated with a 5-0 record. They have been out scoring opponents 286-48. That puts them in a three-way tie for first in the Pacific North DIII, with Redwood City, who they have already won a match against and Colusa, which is in the Southern league.
While they may have made it look easy to clinch a playoff spot with one more league match to go, team President, Timothy “Cheese” Bushard recognizes the hard work that has gone into making it this far,
This season has been one of the most difficult but one of the most exciting season that I’ve been apart of with the Mighty Oaks…the level of commitment that is needed to accomplish the team goals of making playoffs and trying to make a deep run is difficult.
One of the reason behind the success this year has been attributed to the level of teamwork camaraderie that has developed between the players “…the team has really found success in bonding together and putting the Mighty Oaks above their person goals” said Cheese.
