Garnet Grit Betties seeking fresh meat, wider community support
July 18, 2019
When one imagines sports in Southeast Alaska, one might think of sport fishing, golf, basketball, or even baseball. Roller Derby might not be the first thing that comes to someone's mind, but it can be found in several towns across the panhandle.
There are the Ragnarok Rollers in Petersburg, the Sitka Sound Slayers, and Ketchikan has the Rainforest Rollers.
Wrangell, too, has a team. Wrangell's Garnet Grit Betties held a "fresh meat" event at the roller rink last Thursday afternoon, and are looking to increase public awareness and support of their team and roller derby in general.
