003 Tace T

Tace T-003What is the inspiration behind your derby name?
It’s my forename and first letter of my surname. It sounded a bit more feminine than my uni nickname, Tace the Disgrace.

What was your funniest roller derby moment?
Unintentionally slide tackling two full walls of blockers at practise and creating a pretty spectacular domino effect, ending with me underneath a pile of bodies. And then Booze Wound taking my penalty. Thanks Booze.

How did you first discover roller derby?
I was talking to a friend about wanting to take up a physical/contact sport to channel my energy and get competitive. I got bored of the gym and the usual routine, and having played a little roller hockey as a kid I knew I was mediocre on in-lines. My friend knew Kalamity James and a little about a sport called roller derby, and hooked me up with Kalamity. She invited me to come and watch a practise scrim and I bought a fresh meat starter kit the following week. Being part of such a formidable team and community such as NRG is pretty damn inspiring.

Three words to describe you?
Determined, motivated, energetic.
