The Petersburg roller derby team began its season on Saturday by winning in Sitka by more than 130, a runaway victory that the coach called a testament to preparation and conditioning.

The Petersburg Ragnarök Rollers defeated the Sitka Sound Slayers, also known as Shee Devils, on Saturday evening 205 to 72. It was a rematch from last year, said Rebecca Anderson, the lady rollers' head coach.

"We had anticipated that they would be coming at us, knowing our strengths and weaknesses and ready to exploit us," said the second-year coach. "So we were preparing pretty hard and fast."
