Halley Lose Ya
Physical Therapist Assistant
Why did you start roller derby?
After graduating from college, I traveled the world as a missionary for a year. During the plane ride home, I watched the movie Whip It. I decided I needed a new hobby for my new adventure into adulthood, and derby was the perfect fit.
Favorite roller derby memory?
Listening to Broadway musicals with teammates to get pumped up before bouts. Hardcore, I know.
Most embarrassing roller derby memory?
Colliding (hard) with a ref at a big tournament.
My first bout was...
in February of 2011. I wasn't expecting to make the roster because I had only recently started skating with TCR. I was terrified but somehow survived.
