Skater Profile: Hustle #89
Watching CRG blocker Hustle in action today, you’d never guess that on her first night on skates, she clung to the rink wall like a cat avoiding a bath (those are her own words — read more of them here). She’s confident, agile and strong, and she always seems to be in the right place at the right time, much to the frustration of opposing jammers.
CRG Moves to Xavier’s Campus
The Cincinnati Rollergirls are winding their way to a new venue in 2017 on Xavier University’s campus! Read the official announcement below.
Skater Profile: Hustle
Before she ever geared up and skated onto a derby track, Hustle (second from left) volunteered for the Cincinnati Rollergirls as a non-skating official and frequently profiled other skaters for CRG's website. Now, after trying out for the team three times, she's a skater herself - and ready to tell her own story.
Skater Profile: Royal T
With her trademark blue Kansas City Royals bandana, relentless recycling of opposing jammers when she's blocking and striking speed and agility when she puts on the jammer star, Royal T is always a standout when CRG's Black Sheep take the track. Here's the story of how she became crowned Royal T, how she's helping to train the next crop of CRG skaters and how she unwinds when she's not winding up to skate.
Skater Profile: Jas Hubbard
If you've been a CRG fan for the past few years, you know the name Jas Hubbard — or Jas "The Hammer" Hubbard, as our announcer The Loud Guy likes to call her (and now she even has a hammer tattoo to match).
It's a fitting nickname, as Hubbard has been an indispensable tool in CRG's offensive toolbox. She had four 100-plus-point games this year, scored an average of 91 points per game and had an average point differential of +65 points per game. All told, she scored a whopping 729 points this season alone. And she electrifies fans as she laps the pack with dizzying speed and agility and lands astonishingly high apex jumps.
We got this powerhouse point-scorer to slow down for a few minutes to tell us more about everything from her derby beginnings to her pre-game rituals to the kind of pizza that's the way to her heart.
CRG Pride Night Preview
This Saturday night, May 19, the Cincinnati Rollergirls will finish their 13th home season and their second season at Schmidt Memorial Fieldhouse on the Xavier University campus with their inaugural Pride Night.
2018 Star Wars Night Preview
I’m not going to bury the lead: it’s rivalry week here in Cincinnati. No, I’m not talking about the Crosstown Shootout; I’m talking about the annual Crosstown Knockdown between the Cincinnati Rollergirls and Northern Kentucky’s Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls. These teams have played each other a number of times over the past decade and look to add another chapter to their shared story this Saturday, April 28, also CRG’s annual Star Wars Night.
The New Face Of CRG
The face of roller derby is changing, and increasingly, it’s made up of skaters who started playing the sport as teens and even pre-teens. This year, the Cincinnati Rollergirls have seven skaters who got their start on junior teams in Cincinnati and beyond — that’s nearly half a roster! We talked with them about how adult derby is different from junior derby, what their goals are and what advice they’d give to other junior skaters.
