NHRD hosted a double-header at the JFK on Saturday, June 18. The SFOD All-Stars hosted the Ironbound Maidens of Garden State Rollergirls. Skate Free or Die’s captain, Makeout Bandit, led her team to a 100 – 33 victory scoring 24 points and earning MVP! Way to go Bandit!
The second match-up featured NHRD’s Queen City Cherry Bombs vs the CT Rollergirls’ Yankee Brutals. Playing strong both offensively and defensively, JPOWW earned MVP and helped the Bombs win 91 – 58. Nice work JPOWW!
Tiara Misu checked in with this month’s featured sakter Sioux A. Cyde and found out a few things you should know……
Why Derby? Rollerderby is the most fun I’ve had in a long time. It’s always exciting! I love the game!! Roller derby people are so cool. AND it’s a great way to stay fit too!
What are you thinking about when you’re on the track? I’m really good at blocking the comotion out. I can’t even hear the announcer while a jam is on. It can get confusing……i just try to focus one jam at a time!!!
Any pre-game rituals? I have to eat light and healthy: bananas and oats. A honey granola! I’m always down for a pb + j!!
How do you keep your personal, professional, and derby life separate? You’ve got alot going there girl! They all have their place. Juggling is hard at times, but not skating would be harder on my heart! [p.s. my saying is save the drama for your mamma! lol!)
What do your kids think of you playing derby? You’re in charge of some really little people…what would they think of their teacher?
My two sons Anthony and Robby think my skating life is AWSOME! Family support is so important! I’ve only ever had positive fedback from co workers and family, although some think im a litle crazy! My students know I skate on a team….they think its soooo cool!!!
You ARE cool Sioux! Wish I had a teacher like you.
