Bloody Bathory: NWA Roller Derby’s Skater Of The Month for November 2011
NWA Roller Derby would like to recognize November’s skater of the month, Bloody Bathory, for her endless devotion to the sport of roller derby, constant drive to reach new goals and encouragement she provides to everyone on and off the track. Bloody has been skating with NWA Roller Derby since DAY ONE on March 25, 2006. Starting with her spot on the Hardwood Harlots, jamming for the Backwoods Betties, playing on her home team the Hardwood Hustla’s and also skating on the NWA Roller Derby All-Stars. Bloody also serves as a WFTDA rep for our league.
- Bloody Bathory’s infamous derby persona is attributed to the Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who systematically murdered and tortured a known 600 women, possibly more. Bathory is believed to be the inspiration for Bram Stokers Dracula, though Stoker used her uncle, Vlad the Impaler, as well.
- Off skates Bloody is a full time college student. Waits tables full time. Is a single mother of two and takes care of about half a dozen animals she couldn’t stop herself from saving.
- Pre-bout ritual: Water and caffeine.
Bloody motivates and encourages everyone on our league. From our Fresh Meat skaters, to her veteran comrades. Bloody is always there for whoever needs a helping hand, inspirational advice, or a good laugh. On the track Bloody is a great blocker and can also step up to the jammer plate whenever called.
For all of these reason’s and more, we want to congratulate Bloody Bathory as our “Skater of the Month”.
