Red River Sirens Make Debut

Red River Sirens - Clarksville, TennesseeClarksville, TN – Saturday night, Clarksville’s very own Red River Sirens made their debut against the Sintral Florida Derby Demons at Magic Wheels Skating Rink.

They had great attendance as people packed in to watch these women on roller skates race around the track doing their thing.  Each team has a Jammer and they set out to lap members of the opposing team.  Roller Derby has actually been around for many years and was very popular in the 1970’s becoming a form of sports entertainment.

The Sirens looked great in their first bout against a team that has been together for 4 years.  Although the Sintral Florida Derby Demons won the bout this time around, the Red River Sirens plan to come back strong and bring home a win for their fans.

Part of the proceeds from the bout went to benefit Companion Pet Rescue, a shelterless rescue organization, to help with dog and puppy food, blankets, towels, kennels and crates.

 The Companion Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
