PALMDALE – The Wasteland Derby Dames beat the San Gabriel Valley Roller Derby 323-138 Saturday night at the team’s first home game since 2012.
The March 14 event, which took place at the Hammack Center Rinks in Palmdale, was a great success, according to organizers.
“We had a great crowd of people, from city council members to Antelope Valley locals of all ages… [We] sold well over 500 tickets. The crowd was very excited cheering for the Antelope Valley, and a lot of positive feedback was given from the audience about the event,” stated Mario Miranda, public relations representative for Wasteland Derby Dames.
The MVP Blocker of the Game was Angelica “Old Ras” Miranda, who is also the local league’s president.
The MVP Jammer of the Game was Ashley “Skalalala” Ladd, who is also the local league’s vice president.
“These events take a lot of time and determination to put on. A big thanks goes out to all the volunteers who came out, because without their support, this would not have been possible,” Mario Miranda stated.
Founded in 2011, the Wasteland Derby Dames is the Antelope Valley’s first and only all-women’s flat-track roller derby league.
