The Rodeo City Rollergirls took a 158-91 win over the Atomic City Roller Girls on Saturday in Kennewick in the glitter versus gore bout. Saturday’s win marked Rodeo’s second win of the 2018-2019 season.
Bench coach Brigitte Weigand said she was proud that Rodeo’s endurance was strong and their spirits stayed high throughout the bout against Atomic City.
“I’m really, really proud of them for that,” Weigand said. “I also want to say that their communication was top notch. They found each other on the track and just the fact that everybody persevered and did their jobs… they did what they needed to do to get this win, but had fun doing it. I’m proud of my teammates for that.”
Rodeo City’s Yo-Yo Mauler, Callie Guntheroth, took the MVP jammer award, while Hula C Nation, Shelby Taylor-Olson, took the MVP Blocker award.
