LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - The roller derby season is in full swing, and Lawton’s 580 RollerGirls are preparing for their first game.

7News spoke with Marie Pihulic, co-captain of the 580 RollerGirls, and Brittany Kartvala, the captain, about the team and their goals.

Their first game against the Twister City team from Oklahoma City will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 18, at the Great Plains Coliseum. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $15 for track-side seats. Military personnel will get tickets for $8 with ID, and children under 10 get in for free.

The 580 RollerGirls also request canned goods donations at the game to support the Lawton Food Bank.

Fun fact: they are Lawton’s first women’s flat track roller derby league and are committed to empowering women and helping provide for the community.
