The Magnolia Roller Vixens (MRV) is a roller derby league based in Jackson, Mississippi. Founded in 2008, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded early in 2008, and held its first bout in November, in which its skaters faced players from Biloxi Roller Derby and Red Stick Roller Derby.[1] By 2010, its practices were held at the National Guard Armory in Clinton, and its skaters were noted as having highly diverse careers.[2]

In January 2011, the league was accepted as an apprentice member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association,[3] and it graduated to full membership in December 2012.[4]
