About Balls:

How did you get into Roller Derby?

I have been interested since I read in the newspaper that Birmingham got a roller derby team. I ended up looking up teams in the area. I drove to Chattanooga and saw my first bout and fell in love!

What is your best roller derby memory?

Learning basics with my Blizzard newbie group.

What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?

My very first bout, my whole team ended up in the penalty box and I was the only blocker on the track. Shreddie Mercury was the jammer and I could not block her or hit her out because I was being held by Claw and Order the whole time. It was embarrassing.

What was your first bout like?

The first bout I skated in was amazing! I am so in love with the sport and I was so eager to be on the track. My form was awful, but my team did work and we won!

What are some of your other hobbies?

Building puzzles, cuddling, being obnoxious, drawing

What 3 fictional characters best describe you?

Mad Hatter, Joey Tribbiani, Ferris Bueller
