I was lucky enough to shoot the TX Roller Girls season opener last weekend (Photogs take note, they are changing their camera policy “pro” gear may require media credentials, please check the website before the bout). It was fun to be able to see Derby again, and I ended up with a nice vantage point om the rail at Turn 1. These bouts were the rematches of last season’s matches to determine 3rd Place and 1st Place. It was a slower paced night than I expected with lots of chanting of “occupy the jammer line”, but there was still plenty of action. In the end Hell Mary’s defeated the Heartbreakers 144 – 87, and the Hotrod Honeys upset last years champions the Hustlers 141 – 59. A very pleasant surprise was the Minor Mishap Marching Band as the fearured band.
If you enjoy the slideshow, here is the complete set.
See you April 21st for the next bout!
