Dead River Derby hosts bout

MARQUETTE – Marquette’s Dead River Derby will host a home bout against a Wisconsin team next week at Lakeview Arena.

Dead River Derby will face the Northwoods Derby Knockouts of Rhinelander, Wisconsin, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 12. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Marquette’s team is a local, by-women, for-women non-profit organization that participates in roller derby, a family friendly but full-contact, highly athletic women’s sport that has regained popularity in the last few years with genuine competition.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, with children 9 years old and younger getting in free. A portion of proceeds from this event will be contributed to Music For All Kids.
