Anyone Can Last 9 Rounds

As most of my friends know, I wouldn’t consider myself athletic.  I have spent money on gym memberships that were never used, purchased workout equipment that gathers dust in my garage, and I constantly admit that the only way I would choose to run, is if something were chasing me.

Columbia QuadSquad aided the Sumter Fly Girls in hosting the South Carolina Derby Expo at the Sumter Civic Center in Sumter, SC on November 11, 2012.

The Expo featured the Columbia QuadSquad Miss B-havers, Richland County Regulators, Sumter Fly Girls and Carolina Wreckingballs. Each of the women’s teams duked it out on the track in mini-bouts, with twenty minute halves. The Wreckingballs mixed it up with the women in the final bout of the evening for a co-ed scrimmage.

The expo featured local vendors and exhibitions by several of the Carolina Wreckingballs, who jumped over brave volunteers while on skates.

The featured charity for this event was Harvest Hope Food Bank. Donations were accepted at the door, and the non-perishable food items were taken to Harvest Hope just in time for the holiday season.

What a great way to wrap up the CQS season! Thanks to everyone involved!
