The Petersburg Ragnarök Rollers returned home from Palmer this weekend after one win and one loss against teams from Fairbanks and Palmer. The local roller derby team Saturday lost to the Fairbanks Roller Girls 173-104 and Petersburg beat the Denali Destroyer Dolls of Palmer 160-124.

The Petersburg skaters are gaining more experience; these were the first bouts for the team without any “fresh meat” or skaters new to competition in the line-up. Joe Viechnicki spoke with Petersburg’s coach Rebecca Anderson, aka “Midlife Tigress” about the two bouts.
