Nearly 200 people watched as the Madams of Mayhem took on the Conroe Cutthroats in a women’s flat-track roller derby bout during the Madams of Mayhem Summer Shovin’ event Saturday at the Flores Center in Tyler.
The event was the teams third home bout of the 2019 season and portions of their proceeds were donated to the Arc of Gregg County in Longview.
Team captain Ashton Ashberry, aka Cowgirl from Hell, said the team of over 40 members is comprised of people from all over East Texas with radically different backgrounds who come together to compete in the sport and serve the community.
“We really are a community. We have teachers, RNs, business administrators, (people) from every walk of life who come together for this…it’s not just for women, it’s for anybody who wants to be included.”
The Madams take on the Rockin’ City RollerGirls, of Round Rock, in their next home competition September 14 in Tyler.
