PVRG went (2-2), claiming 6th place, and an international rank of 54th.

In September 2015, Paper Valley announced on social media that they would merge with Appleton's other WFTDA-member league, Fox Cities Roller Derby, and the new organization would continue to operate under the Fox Cities name. Paper Valley's final WFTDA ranking was at 111 in April 2015.
