Hell­rais­ers com­pete in Medicine Hat

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Krystin McHugh

A few of Drumheller’s Hell­rais­ers, the lo­cal roller derby team, made the trip to Medicine Hat on Satur­day, Jan­uary 7 to play in an In­vi­ta­tional called Naughty Vs Nice.

These four scrim­mages were games that derby play­ers could sign up for to learn more about the game. The games were ei­ther la­beled as ad­vanced, in­ter­me­di­ate, rookie, or ju­nior, depend­ing on the level the play­ers were at. Teams were called ei­ther the nice team or the naughty team to stay in the hol­i­day spirit.

April De Smet told The Mail, “Eight Hell­rais­ers signed up in a game mixed with other play­ers from all over Canada. We also had one of our own ref­er­ees, An­gelina Vance (aka Sweet Jus­tice) ref two games.”

Jan­uary 21 will be the first game of the year for The Hell­rais­ers. They will be back in Medicine Hat to play against the Foxy Rollers. April Des Smet said, “On Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 2 from 6-9pm at the Stam­pede Barn the Hell­rais­ers are do­ing an open house, skater in­take for any­one want­ing to join The Bad­lands Hell­rais­ers Roller Derby League.”
