Mary Fagdalene (or ‘Fags’ as she’s known to her team mates) has been playing roller derby for the past 5 years… starting out her career with Perth Roller Derby in Western Australia, Fags instantly fell in love with the game and the DIY nature of the sport. Fags captained both her home and travel teams at PRD during the 2013-14 seasons… during this time she describes herself as a “total bruiser” who “just wanted to hit things.” In 2015, Fags moved cross country to join the Victorian Roller Derby League and was quickly placed on the All Star team as a primary jammer and sent to the USA to jam at The Big O tournament. Fags had a phenomenal 2015 season with VRDL and says “playing Gotham and London at Champs was a big learning curve and has given me lots to focus on for 2016.”
Fags has an additional focus for the season also, having been nominated Co-Captain of the All-Star team. Fags also has a love of coaching derby, both her own league as well as others. During the off season Fags went on both a U.S and a West Australian coaching tour with Mick Swagger – as a jammer/blocker coaching combo.
Fags says she’s “excited to represent Chaya and Powerslide”, and the feeling is so mutual… Fags we are so happy to have you on board and support you for the 2016 season!
