A group of local women is working to bring a high-energy new sport to Cook County—Roller Derby! There are a lot of unknowns at this time. Organizers have found a venue in which to race and a league has been formed, but how many women will sign on to skate and when they will meet for practice and competition has yet to be worked out.

However, initial response from the public has been positive and the women who launched the proposal, Roseanne Cooley and Brandee Wenzel are encouraged by the enthusiasm.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence invited them in to the studio to learn more about their proposal.
