The Mason-Dixon Roller Vixens (MDRV) is a roller derby league based in Hagerstown, Maryland. Founded in 2007, the league consists of two teams. The All-Stars are MDRV's WFTDA-ranked travel team and the Cannon Brawlers are MDRV's travel B-Team.

The league was established in June 2007, and initially practiced in Greencastle, Pennsylvania.[1] Initially, the league had only eight skaters, but this increased to twenty by mid-2009.[2] Several skaters from the league broke off from MDRV to form Key City Roller Derby, a roller derby league in Frederick, MD.[3] Key City Roller Derby dissolved in 2016 and several of their remaining members joined MDRV.

Mason-Dixon was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in April 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[5]
