Cris and Micki started playing roller derby together, played on the LA Derby Dolls Ri-ettes and Varsity Brawlers together, came to ACDG together, tried out for the Hollywood Scarlets together, made the team together, became trainers together… you get the idea. Not wanting to take a “derby wife” like so many derby girls do, Cris and Micki realized that they were friends for life, like penguins.
These women are fiercely loyal to each other and their teammates and are exemplary athletes both on and off the track. Their dedication to derby spills into their personal lives where they dedicate themselves to fitness (Yoga for Cris and Crossfit for Micki) to enhance their performance on the track. They are crucial jammers to the Scarlets stellar line up of talent, and lend their experience and knowledge to training the Rising Stars as they learn skills and strategy to earn them a place on a team in the league. What better women to lead the growing talent of ACDG?! We’re so greatful for these Derby Penguins!
