Roller Derby Update: From Newbie to MVP
This weekend was the last bout of the 2013 season. I started skating with the Salina Sirens in February of 2013 and despite having some experience skating as a teen, I was in a whole new world of aches, pain, and a steep learning curve. Our November bout was themed "Spanksgiving" and we played against the Capitol City Crushers from Topeka. We lost, but I am so proud of the way our team played and I'm particularly proud of my own performance -- I left it all on the floor and hit hard. No mercy! I was honored when the CCC voted me as the MVP blocker for my team. I can't believe how much fun Derby has been and I'm so proud of my improvement!!
