The Texecutioners have qualified as the #1 seed at the WFTDA South Central Regionals for 2012. The tournament — also known as the ‘Landlocked Lace-Up’ — will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska, on the weekend of October 5-7, and the top three teams from the event will progress to November’s WFTDA Championship Tournament, where they’ll compete against top teams from WFTDA’s three other regions.
The Texies have been ranked in the top two teams in the South Central region since its inception and are one of just three teams who have progressed to Championships every year (the other two are our recent guests at the Star of Texas Bowl, Windy City Rollers and the defending champs, Gotham Girls Roller Derby).
Ten teams have qualified to participate at the Landlocked Lace-Up:
1. Texas Rollergirls (Austin, TX)
2. KC Roller Warriors (Kansas City, MO)
3. Houston Roller Derby (Houston, TX)
4. Tampa Roller Derby (Tampa, FL)
5. Nashville Rollergirls (Nashville, TN)
6. Atlanta Rollergirls (Atlanta, GA)
7. No Coast Derby Girls (Lincoln, NE)
8. Omaha Roller Girls (Omaha, NE)
9. Tallahassee Rollergirls (Tallahassee, FL)
10. Jacksonville Rollergirls (Jacksonville, FL)
