The Ypsilanti Vigilantes traveled to Euclid, OH on May 21st to face the Burning River Pyromaniacs. The weather was warm and sunny and the excitement of a road trip was high. After an exciting win at home one week earlier, the Vigilantes were excited to see how they would fare against a new addition to the Burning River league, the Pyromaniacs.
May 14th brought excitement, nerves, cold temps and snuggling blankets to Ann Arbor during the home opener of Ann Arbor Roller Derby's 2016 season at the beautiful Buhr Park. Heading into the home bouting season, the Ypsilanti Vigilantes have been working hard on developing strength and unity in their lines, perfecting a deep jammer rotation, and applying new offensive strategy. After being defeated by the Downriver Muscle the previous week, the Vigilantes applied what they learned from that bout and faced the East Lansing Broadbarians with brut and grace.
In this Wolverine Women segment, take a trip to Buhr Park to meet some of our skaters and learn the basics of derby. It's a great way to get pumped for this Saturday, our triple header season opener, featuring the Brawlstars, Ypsilanti Vigilantes, and our newest boot camp graduates! Tickets are on sale now for this and all of our 2016 home bouts, along with a limited number of season passes.
