WCR All-Stars Skate Into National Championships

WCR All-Stars by Gil Leora

The Windy City Rollers' away team, the WCR All-Stars, have enjoyed a fantastic 2009 season thus far. After walloping Portland on Oct. 17 113-73, the gals are moving on to the ultimate test: the WFTDA National Tournament.

This year's "Declaration of Derby" tournament takes place Nov. 13-15 in Philadelphia. Last year, the WCR All-Stars placed second in the nation. This year they have their eyes on the prize as they bout against some of the best leagues in the country. WCR will play the winner of the bout between the Kansas City Roller Warriors and Denver's Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Their first game will be at 1:30pm EST on Saturday, Nov. 14.
