The Rodeo City Rollergirls took a 143-107 win over the Rolling Hills Derby Dames on Saturday, March 9th at Ellensburg High School.
Rodeo’s team captain Hailey McGraw, known as What The Hellvetica, said her team started out with the fundamentals and worked together to focus on teamwork within their walls.
“Our blockers did a great job holding their jammers and keeping them from scoring,” she said. “We were able to integrate a lot of our newer skaters in and they followed our communication and direction with complete trust and confidence. Overall we played a game we were proud of and took home a well deserved victory.”
Rodeo coach Andrea Eklund said it was a hard-fought game.
“The teams were equally matched and we had to work hard to come out on top,” she said. “Our players communicated, had strong walls, they kept recycling the opposing jammer, and we had fast offense for our jammer. It was great to see seasoned skaters and newer skaters come together for the win.”
Rodeo is 6-1 in the 2018-2019 season. McGraw was named Rodeo’s MVP jammer, and Rumble Bee Marie, Brigitte Wiegand, was named MVP blocker.
The Rodeo City Rollergirls play next on March 23 in Pullman where they will take on the Palouse River Rollers.
