The November skater spotlight is here and this month we are featuring one of ourrookie skaters, End’hers.

End’hers and I sat down prior to practice one evening and had a chat about her derby experience and balancing her home life with her derby life. You can listen in on our chat below.

 

End’hers tells us about life/derby balance

 

End’hers is a tenacious skater, and you can clearly see her tenacity and determination when she plays. Don’t let her small stature deceive you, she’s a tough opponent andd a fierce competitor. Although she has faced some struggles with some of the skills and game play of derby, she has never given up. Her progress has been incredible and we are nothing but excited to see where End’hers will take her derby

play in the very near future. This spring, she was drafted to the OCRD house team Dirty Harriets, and I am very thankful to have her as a teammate. I definitely do not want to go up against her.

Off the track, End’hers is quiet and light spoken, but she’s not afraid to speak her mind. Always one to offer a hand or an opinion, she is a very valuable member of our league.
