FEASTERVILLE, PA – The 10th annual East Coast Derby Extravaganza took place over the weekend in Pennsylvania, and had three days of games on three tracks by the gamut of women’s teams, men’s teams, and junior teams.

Although there wasn’t a video stream available, the games on track 2 and track 3 had audio broadcasts, and the ECDX page posted supplemental videos throughout the weekend, if you’re looking for more.

Long-time captain of Philly Roller Derby’s all-star team, the Liberty Belles, Mishel Castro has skated her extensive derby career in the City of Brotherly Love.

After joining Philly’s first travel team in 2006, Castro dove knee-deep into derby. She skates on and off with the Vagine Regime, the PA All-Stars, and is also a proud member of a Philadelphia-based roller derby drinking team called the Fishtown Fighting Shad. 

Primarily a line blocker, Castro also puts on the pivot cap, and was the WFTDA’s featured skater last September. A native of New Jersey, Castro is also a member of The Bont QuadStars, aka Team Cool Hair, if you couldn’t tell by her style.
