The Scouting Report
Though it marks the beginning of the All-Star derby season, the Rat City Roller Girls can breathe a sigh of relief before their May 10 bout: they won't have to beat up on themselves this time. From January through April, Rat City held four home team bouts, each time pitting one of the organization's four sister teams against the other. Now, they get a chance to put all the lessons and high-five formations they perfected during exhibition to work against rival leagues from around the world in a race to WFTDA championships.
In the opening bout, the Rat City Rain of Terror take the rink against the Antagonist squad, exhibiting textbook strategy picked up while training with the All-Stars. In the featured matchup, the 17th-ranked Rat City All-Stars have a chance to topple Sacramento's Sacred City Derby Girls, who are currently ranked in the top 40 in the WFTDA.
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.
