MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Not since the days of Raquel Welch in the Kansas City Bombers have Marquette residents experienced the action of women’s roller derby.
But now, thanks to the Dead River Derby, women’s roller derby is the latest rage in Marquette and across the U.P.
Dead River Derby girls A-ROAR-A and Knitta Pleazzz joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike to chat with sports guru Mike Plourde about their upcoming home matchup.
This match takes place this Saturday at Lakeview Arena in Marquette at 7:00 p.m.
The girls explained it’s their second ever home match and they want a great crowd at the game because a portion of the proceeds go to Lake Superior Hospice.
