On Sunday, February 17th, our powerhouses in pink and black hit the road for Columbia, SC for a private scrimmage hosted by the Columbia Quad Squad. It was a brutal hour of hard-hitting derby, and BadJon was there to capture all the action! Thank you CQS for having us, and as always, thank you BadJon for the photos!

This past Sunday, your Highrollers kicked off the start of the 2013 season with a home team tournament! We would like to thank all of our incredible fans for coming out and showing their support! With Hot Wheels packed to the max, our skaters made sure our fans got their money’s worth. The night started off with the Ashley Riverdolls taking on the Holy City Heartbreakers. The Riverdolls fought to the bitter end, but it was the Heartbreakers that took the win in the first round, with a score of 48 to 41. For the second bout, it was the Swamp Foxes battling the Riverdolls. The Swamp Foxes tore up the track and snagged the win, 67 to 39. For the final bout of the night, the Heartbreakers were back and took on the Swamp Foxes. It was a close one in the beginning, but the Swamp Foxes grabbed a strong lead and got the big win, with a final score of 45 to 9.
This Season Opener also marked the first bout for several new comers to the league. Please welcome Magically Maulicious and Rave N Claw to the Heartbreakers, Atlas Angel and Striker to the Swamp Foxes, and Scar’d n All Sin, Vinyl Traxx and Fort Knocks to the Ashley Riverdolls!
