“In 2001, Austin’s Red River District punk scene gave birth to the new roller derby revolution in the form of Bad Girl Good Woman Productions by the She­E­Os ­ Anya Jack, April Herman, Heather Burdick and Nancy Lynn.

“A spectacle from the very beginning, TXRD has grown into the perfect blend of the “Keep Austin Weird” attitude and a free­wheeling pursuit of fun and competition. Skaters range from ages 21­45 and come from all walks of life to form the league’s five teams -­ Holy Rollers, Hellcats, Putas del Fuego, Cherry Bombs and Rhinestone Cowgirls. TXRD is skater owned and operated and each member plays a roll in the continued success of the league. Our plans for the future are big and our dreams are bigger.”
