On Saturday, Aug. 25, Rollergirls In Pagosa (RIP), the local women’s flat track roller derby league team, traveled to Lakewood, Colo., to bout against South Side Derby Dames (SSDD).
RIP had an impressive showing, skating strong and hitting hard against many seasoned skaters from the Denver area.
The final score was SSDD 154, RIP 126.
Tanya “Hot Toxic” Quinn was awarded Most Valuable Player for RIP after the bout.
It was RIP’s second bout of their debut roller derby season. They are proving to be a strong competitor in the region.
This was also the final competition with Jacob “El Chupa” Miskimens as coach. Miskimens is moving to the Denver area to train for the upcoming North American Strongman National Championships.
RIP’s next home event will be an open scrimmage at South Park on South 8th Street, Saturday, Sept. 29. The public event will be open to all women roller derby skaters in the region. This scrimmage event will support the local food banks, with canned goods as the price of admission to the competition.
