The Santa Cruz Derby Girls will be opening the 2017 season at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium on March 11th. Santa Cruz’s All-Stars, the Boardwalk Bombshells, will be battling it out versus Bay Area Derby’s Berkeley Resistance. The Bombshells suffered a brutal loss to Berkeley in 2015, losing 150-196. Since then, there have been significant roster changes and growth for Santa Cruz. We anticipate fan-favorite Shamrock N. Roller, who is in her 10th season of derby, to deliver dominating blocks, veteran jammer Ace Wenchura to showcase feats of agility and strength, and some fresh new faces to the team. There are only three chances this season to see hard-hitting, fast-rolling, full contact roller derby at the Civic Auditorium. Don’t miss out—buy your tickets at santacruztickets.com to cheer on your Santa Cruz Derby Girls on March 11th.
The Santa Cruz Derby Girls are currently ranked #23 (Division 1) in the world by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)—the highest ranking the team has held in any season. This year, for the first time ever, Santa Cruz will be playing for rankings against teams like Philly Roller Derby from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kallio Rolling Rainbow from Helsinki, Finland, and Bay Area Derby’s All-Star team. Teams compete throughout the season to increase rankings for a spot in the WFTDA Championship every fall, which brings together the highest ranking roller derby leagues in the US and abroad to win the sport’s highest honors.
