Thanks to Tanya Powers for this report on national-championship competition ahead for the Seattle Derby Brats‘ Galaxy Girls, a third of whom are from West Seattle:

They will be heading to Philadelphia to compete for Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) Championships this coming weekend, July 20th to the 22nd! They are currently ranked 2nd place in the country and have won championships the last 3 years.

2 skaters attend Chief Sealth: Brady aka Sophie Maskill and Anita Getcha aka Rosemary Alliston. 3 skaters attend West Seattle High School: Seven Skate Nine aka Morgayne Lawson, SchloMo aka Gaby Rose, and Fighty aka Mikki Dysart. It is Mikki’s last year with Seattle Derby Brats as she will be attending college at University of Pennsylvania next year.

Our coaches Patrice Davis and Erin Clark also have West Seattle roots. Our league was founded in West Seattle and is the largest league in the United States! Please wish them luck!!! More info about champs here. Streaming watch passes will be available here.

    I hate to say it, but it’s better to support the local derby league in a West Seattle and White Center, Southside Revolution who are quickly becoming one of the largest leagues around for boys and girls. They’ve done a much better job supporting the local community than Seattle Brats have and their roots are right here.

      Hi, reporting the successes of local organizations is not a zero-sum situation so we’d certainly love to report on them too BUT haven’t heard anything from them in a long time – can’t report what we don’t hear about – I just checked our archives and the last we heard from Southside Revolution was the season-opening bout announcement last December. Be sure to have them send announcements to westseattleblog@gmail.com – both event announcements (bouts, fundraisers, whatever) and anything like this too – thanks! – Tracy

      Bobby – Seattle Derby Brats has their roots here in West Seattle too.  They started out at Pathfinder School in 2007 as only the second junior derby league in the nation!  They have grown now to have 10 full roster teams in the league. True that they don’t practice in West Seattle currently, but seeing as how 5 of the girls on the Galaxy Girls, and both coaches are local to West Seattle, I think that it is fabulous to celebrate their achievements!  We can all cheer for ALL the derby!  

Sorry, comment time is over.
