September 2014 Skater Of The Month

 

REAPA SLAYWORTH

Tell us about your name
I knew I wanted my derby name to play on an old Hollywood actress and Rita Hayworth was the first one that came to mind.

What position do you like to play?
really like to pivot. It makes me pay more attention to everything happening on the track.

What is your favorite derby memory so far?
My very first practice. I had never skated before and basically just fell a lot for 2 straight hours. By the time that practice was over, I knew I was home, knew that I could be stronger every time I skated and that I was surrounded by the most encouraging women I had ever met.

Who inspires you? 
I have a ton of derby crushes, our league is full of inspiring skaters, but Agony Christie introduced me to derby and has always pushed me to give it my all.
