Helz Belles Excited for New Skaters Against Copper City Queens

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The spring football games not the only physical sports going on in Helena this Saturday. The Helena roller derby team Helz Belles will be hosting Butte's Copper City Queens in their second home bout of the year Saturday night at the Lewis and Clark county fairgrounds at 7 pm. And for many skaters this will be their first time in an actual bout! Which begs the question, what makes these women want to do it?

"There's an element of maybe "Fight Club" in roller derby," said new Helz Belles skater Ada "Ada-Control" Montague. "There's a certain grittyness to it that when you're working day to day behind a desk you maybe miss a little bit."

"It's a lot of nerves, but it's exciting," said new Helz Belles skater Kari "Staggering Fox" Staggs. "You should just try to do something that surprises you and scares you at the same time."
