In 2008, the Queen City Roller Girls welcomed their newest team – the Alley Kats – into the fold. Fans of Buffalo sports will feel right at home rooting for the Kats, who some call the underdo-, er, underkats, of the Queen City. In 2010, the hardworking women in purple nearly took home a championship, but fell wide right by a whisker. Shortly after that, the herd of Kats scattered, leaving the team without many key players. Transfers and injuries have plagued them in years since. But there’s no rush: these women prefer the cat-and-mouse game of strategy, patience, and razor-sharp wits. Slow and steady, they say, will shred the competition.
After the 2013 season, former QCRG head ref Shock-Her hung up his stripes and signed on as Alley Kats head coach. Shock-Her has more than six years of experience on the track and plenty of insight to offer his team. The Kats finally clawed their way to the top in 2017, winning their first QCRG Cup Championship.
Following Shock-Her’s retirement, Kats veteran Boots takes over as head coach and longtime assistant captain PaulverizHer takes over for the retired Flocking Girl Scout. They lead the returning Kats core alongside newcomers Cassadee Dope, Daisy Juke, Kate McHit-em, Mick Dagger, and Ubebee, recent Queen City Junior Roller Girls graduate Ashzilla, and returning skater Arti Choker.
