The Scouting Report
Currently ranked 14th in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association world rankings, the Rat City Roller Girls hosts teams from across the United States during their final two bouts of the regular season. The doubleheader event on July 12 will launch into action when the Rat City Rain of Terror square off against the Emerald City Roller Girls. After the dust has settled and all bruised egos have been dragged off the skating surface, the Rat City All-Stars will take the oval for a hard-hitting bout against the ladies of Houston Roller Derby—ranked 33rd in the world. It doesn't get any easier on August 9, either, when Rain of Terror battles Denver Roller Derby and the All-Stars clash with the Minnesota Rollergirls—ranked 6th and 8th, respectively.
Rat City Roller Girls
Necessity may be the mother of invention, but the Rat City Roller Girls can trace their roots to a different source: minute rice and lamb stir-fry. In April of 2004, a few friends gathered for a dinner party. Over plates of lamb and rice, the conversation turned towards a roller derby resurgence that was taking place in Texas. The conversation stayed on their minds, and within weeks, these friends had founded the first flat-track derby league to the Northwest. Nearly a decade later, the Rat City Roller Girls—named after the neighborhood where the league first gathered, not the underground metropolis where cheese is more valuable than gold—has grown to encompass four teams who rock KeyArena with hard-hitting bouts throughout the year. For special events and tournaments, the top players from the league join forces to form the Rat City All-Stars and represent their home against elite squads from across the country.
