Senior Athlete Profiled
Senior Lily Hargis (Richmond '14) is profiled for her involvement in the growing sport of roller derby in "Swell on Wheels," a feature in the February issue of Richmond Family Magazine. Hargis took up skating last spring, and now trains with Mother State Roller Derby, an adult competitive team in Richmond.
Roller Derby is one of the fastest-growing sports for teenaged girls, with the number of junior leagues in the US and Canada increasing from 12 to 191 in the past five years. Hargis plans to continue skating in college.
