Humboldt Roller Derby, Saplings-style!
Humboldt County just took another big step into the world of girls' athletics. Thanks to the all-around amazing women of Humboldt Roller Derby, the thrills and challenges of derby have been made available to local girls, ages 11-17. The second session of the Saplings recently culminated in a "Friends & Family" bout. Both sides took some lumps, skated hard and worked together – the cheering never stopped! Ultimately the pink team accumulated more points than the blue team, but without doubt, every young derby girl rolled away a winner.
Check out a small glimpse into the Saplings world, including jammer Preditori, interviewed during KSLG's live broadcast of the May 15 Redwood Rollers bout:
Next bout, July 24! KSLG will be there and you should, too!
