2019 Rookies!

As their first season with Ohio Roller Derby winds down and preparations begin for the next round of OHRD tryouts in September, we caught up with some members of the 2019 rookie class to discuss their experiences, joys, and growth over the past year. How did you first hear about roller derby, and what made you decide to get involved with OHRD? Slayna Scully: I first heard about roller derby back in college in 2009! I was in my first year at BGSU and went to see the Glass City Rollers and fell in love. I bought a pair of quads that year, but never had the money or the time to get involved. I skated casually and recreationally until I finished graduate school last spring, and then I was free to join OHRD, aka the league of my dreams! Nick Tater: Slayna Scully, who I knew mostly just as an acquaintance through my sister, was involved with OH-Rec League (OH!RL) and convinced me to join because she thought I would enjoy it. I've always been athletic and she just reached out randomly one day and told me to come try a WannaBe Clinic. I was hooked from that first night. I joined

GANG GREEN ROOKIES HOST CORD

Ohio’s Gang Green rookie crew invited second year team Central Ohio Roller Dolls from Mt.Vernon to Columbus for a closed scrimmage on Tuesday night. I'm proud of our ladies, CORD had some really strong walls. Though CORD was missing their star jammers, the blockers pulling double duty never said die! - Chainsaw Central Ohio was set back from the start, as their top three jammers ShaSam, PB Slammer, and Slapajawea were unable to make the trip with the Dolls. It was amazing to see what the rookies could do on their own out there. They stepped it up and took charge on all fronts. It was hard to contain myself at times because I was so happy with their teamwork and communication. - Ava Tarr Up next for Gang Green, a road trip to Richmond (VA) and Baltimore (MD) to take on the River City Uncivil Warriors and the Charm City Female Trouble.  They’ll be home again on May 11th as they take on the Blue Ridge Rollergirls from Asheville, North Carolina. The Central Ohio Roller Dolls are gearing up for their season home opener this June, more info here.
