Now Taking Applications for 2023 Derby Royalty
Deadline is October 15, 2022.
Our 2022 Derby Queen is Olivia Terlizzi. Olivia is a Senior at Three Lakes High School. She is involved in many school activities and sports such as basketball, volleyball, softball, and NBHS (National Business Honors Society). Olivia has also volunteered basketball tournament, concessions and ticket sales for the drama club productions, and has helped the Three Lakes Trails with brushing and grooming alongside her grandfather. Through the NBHS, Olivia has helped raise money for people in need with the community along with raising money for Pink Ribbon Riders.
Olivia has enjoyed the sport of snowmobiling for years with family and watching races as the derby. She is excited to be selected as our 2022 Derby Queen because she loves to give back to the community and help promote the positive impact of the snowmobiling community on surrounding businesses. Being a positive role model for the derby while representing the local communities would be a great opportunity and an experience that she has always dreamed of.
Our 2022 Derby Princess is Dresden Rutta. Dresden is a Junior at Northland Pines High School. She volunteers at the UCC Thrift Store in St. Germain and also volunteers every winter to bell ring for the Salvation Army. Dresden also has an online business called Recycled Threads, where she sells clothing for cheap and all of the profits that she makes then gets donated to American Humane and World Central Kitchen.
Dresden has enjoyed attending races at the World Championship Derby Complex with her family for many years. During those years, she would admire the Royalty hoping that one day she could be just like them. Dresden is looking forward to being selected as our 2022 Derby Princess because she is extremely passionate about the sport of snowmobiling as she has been riding since she was young and because it would be incredible to be a face of something that she has admired very much and will represent it proudly.
