The Oly Rollers are a women's flat-track roller derby league based in Olympia, Washington. The league was founded in February 2006.[1] The Oly Rollers are a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).

Teams[edit]

The Oly Rollers league is composed of three teams: the Cosa Nostra Donnas, which is their all-star team for interleague competition; the Dropkick Donnas, formerly known as the Prima Donnas; and the Bella Donnas, consisting of their newer recruits.[2]

Through the end of the 2009 season, the Oly Rollers league was composed of two teams: the Cosa Nostra Donnas and the Prima Donnas, consisting of their newer recruits.[3]

Competitive History[edit]

2009[edit]

The Cosa Nostra Donnas finished first in the 2009 WFTDA Western Regional Tournament, qualifying them to compete in the 2009 National Tournament.[4]

At the 2009 WFTDA National Championships, the Oly Rollers had a bye in the first round due to their first-place regional seeding. In the second round, the Cosa Nostra Donnas defeated Gotham Girls Roller Derby 136-105, eliminating Gotham from the tournament.[5] In the third round, Oly beat the Denver Roller Dolls 178-91, advancing to the championship bout and sending Denver to the third-place bout. Finally, the Cosa Nostra Donnas defeated the Texas Rollergirls 178-100 to claim the 2009 WFTDA championship at the end of an undefeated season.[6][7]
