Derby name: Super-ova
Significance of name/number: I wanted a name that had to do with some kind of astronomical phenomenon since I’ve always loved that stuff. My clever husband came up with this one that has a feminine wordplay to it Supernovas are super powerful and so are ovas! The number is one that’s come up throughout my life that I’ve always noticed. It has another significance but it’s a secret (for me to know and you to wonder ….. ha ha ha).
Derbyversary: Spring 2012
Favorite Position: I love blocking and being the Pivot. I like to be the jammer in small doses.
Goal for this season: Unleash all the power and potential inside me that I can. Don’t hold a single bit back!
Why derby? Playing roller derby is one of the best choices I’ve made for myself. I always loved playing team sports when I was young (up to 20′s). It seemed like once you hit a certain age, you just don’t play them anymore. Not true! Working out and staying fit feels so much easier in the context of a sport. Roller derby has encouraged me to love my body and what it can do. Never in my life have I felt so strong, confident, and capable. The benefits of having a group of women friends goes without saying- they work hard at practice week to week with me, we go out for beers together, they threw me my bachelorette party, and they brought me meals when I had my baby. It’s definitely more than derby- although we all seem equally obsessed.
