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.
