The CoMo Derby Dames (CMDD) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Columbia, Missouri. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of two teams, and a mixed travel team which competes against teams from other leagues. CoMo is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History[edit]

The league was founded in January 2007 as the Destruction Junction Derby Dames by Adriene Weller, known as "Bitchy Valens", Jessie Lewis, known as "Foxy Four-Stroke", and Sara Wolff, known as "Roxy Horror." [2] Its first bout, an intraleague contest, was held in July,[3] by which time the league already had more than fifty skaters.[4]

The league subsequently adopted its current name, and was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[6]

In 2018 the league changed its name to COMO Roller Derby in order to be more inclusive.
