SIN’derella #666

Meet Victoria Firomski, part two of the Firomski mother-daughter combo.  Victoria is in grade 10 at the Rocanville School and lives with her family on an acreage just outside of town.  Between roller derby, basketball, and working at the Borderland Coop grocery store, she is a busy teen.

When asked about her derby name, SIN’derella says, “I just kind of thought of it.”  She cleverly enhanced her derby persona by choosing #666 as her number, to highlight the sin/devil play on her name.  Her teammate, Shay-m-less, says that, “SIN’derella is always in the derby spirit and uses her strength to take charge of situations on the track.  She is never scared to voice her opinion.”  These characteristics show that she is a born leader.  When asked how she would convince her friends to try derby, SIN’derella responded with, “I would beg them and tell them that it is the best sport ever!”  Gapland seconds that!

Meet yet another of our amazing gingers, Natalie Firomski, although the derby world knows her as NAT’oreus.  When asked how she decided on her derby name, she says that she, “thought it was a good fit as everyone seems to know my business.”  She chose her number, 87, because that is the year she graduated from school.  NAT’oreus grew up in Burnaby, BC, but now lives just outside of Rocanville with her husband and three kids.  She spends her days as the office administrator for C. Duncan Construction, doing anything and everything associated with the office.

What brought her to roller derby and to join Gapland over two years ago?  NAT’oreus explains, “I partied with the ladies in Regina after a bout and they all seemed so amazing, I wanted to spend more time with such wonderful women!”  How many of you ladies want to check us out after hearing that??
