OHIO ALL STARS GO 2-1 AT SKATE TO THRILL

For their first road games of the 2016 season, (41) Ohio Roller Derby packed in 3 tough games in just under 30 hours at the second annual Skate to Thrill tournament.

While missing a few skaters from their usual roster, Ohio was certainly not lacking in tenacity in any of the three games.

(20) OHIO TO COMPETE AT MIDWEST BREWHAHA

This weekend, the (20) Ohio Roller Girls will travel to Milwaukee (WI) to take part in the annual Midwest BrewHaHa tournament hosted by the Brewcity Bruisers.  The festivities will kick off Friday and bouts will be played through Sunday evening.  The weekend will feature twenty sanctioned bouts, several reserve squad bouts, junior derby, and men’s derby. The Ohio Roller Girls All Stars are slated to play two bouts during the weekend, once on Saturday against the (59) Pikes Peak Derby Dames (Colorado Springs, CO) and again on Sunday against the (10) Minnesota RollerGirls.  Overall, OHRG have found success while playing in Milwaukee.  This trip will be the fourth time the Ohioans have attended BrewHaHa where they have since amassed a 4-2 record at the annual event.  In 2010, Ohio split the weekend by beating Hammer City but losing to Omaha.  The following year, they again split by defeating Bleeding Heartland but dropping a bout to the Chicago Outfit.  In 2012, Ohio went 2-0 with victories over Grand Raggidy and hosts Brewcity. OHRG have never faced Pikes Peak, their opponent on Saturday, who will enter the tournament with a 1-1 record this season.  They started 2012 with a big victory over Ark Valley
