The Cornfed Derby Dames competed in their first tournament ever from April 29 to May 1 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The tournament named, “K-Town Shakedown,” invited 23 women’s and men’s flat track roller derby teams from all over North America to compete.
The Dames played in three games throughout the weekend versus North Texas Roller Derby (Denton, TX), Border City Brawlers (Windsor, ON, Canada), and Dupage Derby Dames (Roselle, IL). In the first game North Texas took the win with a nail-biting final score of 171 to the Dames’ 170. In game two the Dames came out on top of Border City 302 to 114. Lastly, in their toughest game of the weekend, the Dames pulled out a win against Dupage 198 to 172.
The Dames want to thank their fans and the Muncie community as a whole for their continued support of the league over the past six years. The next chance to see the Dames in action is Sunday, June 12 at Gibson’s Skating Arena. The Cornfed Derby Dames All-Stars will take on the Gem City Rollergirls of Dayton, Ohio at 2 p.m. Following the first game, the Cornfed Derby Dames Muncie Missfits will play A-Town Roller Derby of Anderson, Indiana.
