The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) released its monthly calculated rankings of international leagues Wednesday. One of the two primary travel squads featured at archcitysports.com maintained its position while the other took a minor step back .
Out of the 275 international leagues eligible for rank, St. Louis-based Arch Rival Roller Girls maintained its current position of #10 while St. Charles-based St. Chux Derby Chix fell one position to #57.
Calculated rankings are determined mathematically utilizing an algorithm that incorporates strength of opponent and game outcomes.
Arch Rival, who finished 2015 with a 15-3 record and its first-ever appearance at the WFTDA Championships in early November, will resume travel team play early next year.
Its three-team local campaign resumes in January at Midwest Sport Hockey on Saturday, January 2 as the M-80s (1-0) face the Stunt Devils (0-1).
St. Chux finished its 2015 campaign 5-9 and placed fifth at the WFTDA Division 2 playoff round in Duluth, MN in August.
The Pack In Black’s 2016 schedule will be released early next year, but the team is already scheduled to host the third installment of the “Skate to Thrill” invitational next April.
