ARCH All-Stars Jump To #5 Globally In The WFTDA!

The primary travel team of Arch Rival Roller Derby (ARCH) has reached a new historical benchmark within sanctioned play of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).

The governing body recently released their calculated rankings and ARCH placed fifth for all international teams eligible for placement in the hierarchy.

For the last set of WFTDA rankings released in May, ARCH placed seventh but outcomes against current top-ranked Victorian and second-ranked Rose City at the Big O invitational in May rose the team’s stock.

The ARCH All-Stars were officially recognized as a WFTDA-sanctioned team in 2007. Since 2015, the squad had appeared at the governing bodies’ International Championships and have reached “Elite Eight” status the past two seasons.

ARCH (1-2) competes against #4 Denver and #13 Bay Area at the Golden Bowl Invitational held in San Fransisco, California June 15-17.

Congrats to our All-Stars for reaching the Top 5!
