(ST. LOUIS, MO) The third, and final, stage of ARCHs “End of the World Re-draft” held Thursday night at the Skatium resulted in seven players added to the League’s quartet of home franchises.
ARCH’s 2018-19 local campaign launches on Saturday, December 15 at Midwest Sport Hockey at Queeny Park in Ballwin, Missouri. Returning to a presentation that was last featured four seasons ago, each evening of ARCH’s seven event schedule contains a pair of full-length Arch Rival games.
Thursday’s end result was four equally-balanced rosters that will display their competitive edges when the new season starts.
The defending League champions, the Stunts Devils, added a pair of rookie skaters: Dewey Decimation, who started skating with ARCH in January but rose along the newcomers with hard work and patience and Paula, who also followed a similar path and excelled.
Last year’s runner-up, the Smashinistas, also claimed a talented combo. Skeevie Nicks, a jammer transfer from Orlando Roller Derby, and Brawn Burgundy, a Californian who is a newcomer to the sport but took to it quickly.
Legacy franchise the M-80s selected Hayley Contagious, who previously skated with ARCH’s C-team, the Fleur DeLinquents, in Summer 2017 and made a recent migration back to the Gateway City, and Betty White Trash, who joined the league as a newcomer in January and rapidly found traction with the action.
Finally, Rebel Skate Alliance, who returns to the ARCH fold after a four-year layoff, claimed for their collective newcomer Lauren, who took up the sport in July and immediately opened eyes.
A supplemental draft will be held next February for the back half of the ARCH schedule.
Here are the final local rosters for the first half of the Arch Rival Roller Derby 2018-19 season.
