Hidden in plain sight

North County’s first and only all-women’s flat track roller derby team was back in action on Saturday in Oceanside’s Martin Luther King Jr. Park.

Established in 2008 by Rosey Graves and Mortisha Demolisha, the Hidden City Derby Girls has become more than a group of girls skating in circles.

From homemakers to business women, students to “punk rock chicks,” the derby has united them in sisterhood and friendships.
