Our all-star Texecutioners tonight took third place at the 2011 WFTDA Championship Tournament, after a hard fought battle with longtime rivals and #2 seed in the South Central Region, the Kansas City Roller Warriors. The final score was 136 Texas, 112 KC.

To make it to the third place game, Texas dispatched the squad from Minnesota Rollergirls on Saturday morning, 141-108, before moving on to tackle Gotham Girls Roller Derby. The team from New York City took the win there, 195-113, sending the Texecutioners to today’s third place bout and moving on to win the battle for the Hydra.

Kansas had a strong tournament, upsetting Portland’s Rose City Rollers (#4 in the nation via DNN) on Friday afternoon, before beating Chicago’s Windy City Rollers and taking the eventual second-place winner, the Oly Rollers, to the last jam, finally losing 124-104.

We are so proud of our Texecutioners who have worked hard all year for this victory. Thank you for representing us with such fire and determination. Celebrate the win, ladies, and we can’t wait to have you back in Austin to celebrate with us!

Thank you, too, to the fans and sponsors who have supported the Texas Rollergirls throughout this amazing 2011 season – we could not have done it without you!

There are no more games this year, but check back soon – we’ll be announcing our newest crop of rookies (the superstars of the future), along with our 2012 game dates. And remember – we love you ’til it hurts!
