East Lansing Roller Derby spent last Saturday, September 7 in Chicago bouting against Windy City Rollers Third Coast. The Mitten Mavens put up a hard fight against Third Coast, and left it all on the track.
Third Coast took the well deserved win, beating the Mitten Mavens 303-88. Although Third Coast came out victorious, it was a game to remember! To start, three of our Battle Sisters made their Derby Debut: Ford Tuff, Dead, and Mary Queen of Knocks. We are so happy to add them to the East Lansing Roller Derby family! In addition, Jugs Bunny, Kandance, and Demolition made their Mitten Mavens Roster Debut.
All fought hard, worked together, and most importantly had fun.
Our bruises have healed (for the most part) and we are ready for our last home bout of the season on September 21. The Mitten Mavens will take on the Battle Creek Cereal Killers followed by a Friends Mixer featuring the Broadbarians. The bout will be held at Court One, 7868 Old M78, East Lansing, and doors open to the public at 5:00pm.
Our September charity partner will be the Capital Area Humane Society. Adoptable pets will be at the event, and we are accepting donations at the door ($2 ticket discount with any donation). We will also be selling 2020 calendars featuring animals from the Capital Area Humane Society and some of your favorite derby players! You won’t want to miss this game!
