The LITTLE STEEL DERBYGIRLS set it off in Akron!

Youngstown has a new sports team to embrace. If you have not heard of them, you should have, if you have not seen them, you better! Youngstown's own and first as far as I know, flat track roller derby team officially rolled into Akron Sat. for their first Bout!
They may not have won this first time out but that was of little importance. The fact that they were there on the track in a real derby speaks volumes to these Ladies tenacity! More than a year ago I photographed this group for some early promotional photos. There was no schedule, no place to practice, the list could go on and on as to what they have overcome, broken bones included, to now, a living breathing butt kicking Roller Derby team! It was a really cool thing to see them out there speeding around banging their opponents around. Far more exciting than I could have imagined! Physical to say the least. This sport is not for wimps. I can't wait to see them in action again!
Be proud of what you did Saturday, You did it! you all did it!
Hard work does pay off.
