It’s that magical time of year again — roller derby season is back in action! That’s right, the Texas Rollergirls are back with another heart-pounding, blood-pumping season. The 15th wonderful year of Texas Rollergirl flat track action starts with a champs rematch – the Hell Marys vs. the Hotrod Honeys on Saturday, February 17.
Last year the Hell Marys took down the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers and the Hotrod Honeys to get the final game last year, while the Hotrod Honeys defeated the Hustlers and the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers to make it there.
