Derby Gets Rolling in Mat-Su

Jerzy Shedlock, APRN – Anchorage

Roller Derby in the valley is off to a healthy start. More than 300 attendees gathered last month at Curtis Menard Sports Center in Wasilla for the community’s first Rage City Roller Girls bout.

In the event “For Whom the Belle Rolls” two Anchorage teams, the Sockeye Sallys and the Devil’s Club, squared off. The valley’s own Denali Destroyer Dolls were introduced to the public during halftime. The team continues to train in hopes of incorporating the valley into the growing sport.
