Hello Hitty # '49
Real Name: Candace
Occupation: Credentialing Specialist
Favorite Drill: Hitting and Weaving Pace Lines
Fun Fact: My number '49 is for my father in law's birth year of 1949. He was extremely excited when I joined derby and confessed to me that as a small boy his first crush was on a derby girl, The Blonde Bomber, Joanie Weston. He passed away shortly after I started and wearing the '49, I have him with me at every bout!
Why did I join derby: After kicking cancer's ass twice, I wanted to do something that was physical, year round and I didn't have to go to a gym.

Real Name: Jodie
Current Occupation: I am a self employed House keeper of 10 years.
Favorite Drill: Pivot turns and pace lines!
Fun Fact: SQUIRREL
Why I joined Derby: I have been skating roller derby for 6 years. I love skating roller derby because it gives me a huge release of adrenalin with its hard hitting drills and intense workout to stay in shape to prevent injury. I also enjoy all the girls that work hard toward a single goal working as a team.

Real Name: Bree
Current Occupation: Being awesome
Favorite Drill: Queen of the Rink
Fun Fact: I work in my Dad's auto body shop during my spare time. He owns a Classic Car business building Hot Rods in Spokane Valley
Why I joined Derby: To stay sane! I've been an athlete most of my life and Derby is a way for me to keep playing sports in my "later" years, stay healthy mentally and physically all while wearing lipstick. I can combine two of my favorite things sports and fashion! I also like to be a role model to other girls and women that you can be strong and beautiful no matter your shape or size.

Karacken Skulls #57
Real Name: Kara
Current Occupation: Cook
Favorite Drill: Jammer drills and anything involving strategy. I love challenging my mental and physical dexterity
Fun Fact: I have been to eight different countries & I am really good at dreaming!
Why I joined Derby: At first i just thought it seemed really interesting and it was something new and silly to do. With time though it became about the challenge. To go above and beyond what I thought I was capable of doing, and to experience that with a whole team of ladies feeling the exact same thing. In derby we become a family of women coming together through strength of knowing what we are capable of, and that feeling is extraordinary. I love my team!
