Oklahoma Victory Dolls Host First Home Bout of the 2011 Season
By Tourism Industry Partner
The Oklahoma Victory Dolls will host their first bout of the 2011 season on Saturday, May 14th in the Centennial Building at the State Fair Park, 3001 General Pershing Boulevard, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Victory Dolls All Stars will be taking on Alamo City Rollergirls’ Las Tejanas from San Antonio, Texas.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Children 12 and under get in free with paid adult. Tickets can be purchased at Norman and Oklahoma City Guestroom Records, www.brownpapertickets.com or your favorite Victory Doll. A portion of the proceeds from the bout will benefit the Volunteers for Animal Welfare of Oklahoma City. Please visit www.vawokc.org for more information about VAW and their SPOT clinic.
The Oklahoma Victory Dolls are currently 3-0 at the end of the first quarter in 2011. The Dolls have beaten three teams on the road thus far: Assassination City in Dallas, Texas, ICT Rollergirls in Wichita, Kansas and West Texas Roller Dollz in Lubbock, Texas. They will be traveling to Omaha, Nebraska to battle the Omaha Rollergirls on April 30, 2011.
The past few seasons have demonstrated a learning curve as they have taken on the highest ranked teams in the South Central region. However, their rankings have steadily improved as they move into the 4th bout of 2011 undefeated, having beaten 2 teams that they’ve lost to in the past. Rigorous team training, commitment to training individually, as well as the leadership of a new coach all contributed to the improvement and success of the Oklahoma Victory Dolls.
