Despite the Montclair State University women’s rugby team not playing in any competitive games this season, they still found a way to make the fall semester a productive one.

The team safely held practices throughout the season in the face of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. They culminated the fall semester with an intrasquad scrimmage that showcased some of the team’s best players.
