When #2 just doesn’t cut it…

Athletic Background
I was always a “little of this, little of that” type of athlete growing up; artistic roller skating, swimming, gymnastics, roller skating, volleyball, basketball, bicycling etc… Not much focus but always active. After high school, I found the Irish sport of Hurling in the Milwaukee Hurling Club. Hurling was an aggressive, fast paced, chaotic explosion of skill and toughness, right up my alley. I’ve been a member of the MHC for 16 years, and have several club championships, and one NACB Junior B National Championship with the MCH Camogie (Women’s only) team from 2010.

Roller Derby was definitely a natural progression, and destiny. My 8th grade yearbook from 1993 includes the following prediction: “Will be a famous roller derby star and team owner”, almost 10 years before the modern revival of derby. As a member of the BCB, I have finally lived up to that prediction.

Worst Derby Injury
In May of 2011, I had a complete tear of my right ACL. I also sprained my LCL and MCL and had two surgeries to repair the damage in June and July that summer. I spent the entire summer rehabbing and pushing myself with the thought, ” I got hurt like an athlete, I’m going to rehab like an athlete” and I was able to get back to full participation in time for our season opener in January of 2012, just 7 months out from surgery. Lots of thanks to Dr. Pifel at the Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital and Heather and Aaron at ATI.

Proudest Derby Moment
I’m most proud of our All Stars win over the #4 ranked Arch Rival Roller Girls at the Thrill of the Spill, WFTDA North Central Playoffs tournament. While I was on the sidelines for this particular game, it was an amazing team effort over the whole weekend and this was definitely the highlight game of the tournament. Winning that game allowed us to move on to the 5th/6th place game ensuring that we’d come out of the tournament in our highest position to date. I participated in all the other games that weekend, but even in a non-rostered position, I know that we all felt like it was a huge team win, and that it was something we couldn’t have done without everyone who was there that weekend.
