Roller Derby Gals

by Christa Lollis

It was a battle in the rink for a group of East Texas women tonight.   The newest trend in ladies athletics has made it to the area. The East Texas bombers, a local roller derby team, took on a team from Dallas tonight. The teams compete in jams where one skater tries to get through the other team to score points. The East Texas bombers have team members from Lufkin, Nacogdoches and Tyler. If you are interested in competing in roller derby you can call Crash McQueen at (936)615-2571 or go to myspace/easttexasbombers.
