McALLEN – The South Texas Rolleristas, the Rio Grande Valley’s first and original flat track derby league, will be kicking off their 2014 season this Saturday, March 1. This bout will be an exhibition match featuring the new skaters for this season.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the action starts at 7 p.m. at the DeLeon Sports Park Pavilion, 4201 N. 29th Street.
