Most memorable derby moment: Being told I was allowed to dress up in this sport. Best thing ever. And I love the moments where we sit in a circle and discuss our feelings about derby. (Take everything you just read, think of the opposite and that might be more like it….Smash didn’t write her profile in time…)

Best known for: I love scrimmage. Diva calls me a fox terrier because I get so excited and jump around like an idiot when it’s scrimmage time.
DD member since: 2011
Other skating experience: None. I couldn’t stand up when I started, it was pretty funny.
Most memorable derby moment: So many! I love skating out to the bagpipes, it’s such a great feeling. I love being at training when we master a new drill or skill as a team. I love being part of something which is so fun and requires so much discipline and determination. I love when we WIN GAMES!

Ana Phylaxis #23

Most memorable Derby moment: So far, Hell on the Harbour. I don’t think anything can come close to the excitement and hype of our seeing & hearing first home crowd cheering us on.
