OHRG HEADED TO CHAMPS!
OHIO TO PLAY AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS! After coming so close last season to their first ever trip to the WFTDA Championship tournament, the Ohio Roller Girls have clinched a spot at the big dance in November. At the end of each season, the WFTDA holds four Division I tournaments to determine which teams will advance to Champs. The four Division I playoffs were held this year at Ft. Wayne (IN), Richmond (VA), Asheville (NC), and Salem (OR). Using an s-curve ranking system, the top 40 teams in the WFTDA were placed into one of the four above mentioned locations. At each tournament location, the top three finishers would earn a trip to the Championship tournament in November held in Milwaukee (WI). How did the Ohio Roller Girls do it? They came into Ft. Wayne as the #6 seed and upset #3 Arch Rival. OHRG then upset #2 Montreal before losing to #1 Denver in the final bout. The fantastic showing earned the Ohio Roller Girls a #2 seed at Champs. #6 OHIO COLLAPSES #3 ARCH RIVAL 218-166 The Smacktivist scores 103 points OHRG and Arch Rival have a storied history against one another, with the overall record against one another at 2-2.
