Roller Girl Dedicates Herself to Sport

Posted: Updated:
Being on the Gallatin Roller Girlz forces Amy Hansen to be more girly. Before roller derby, Angry Amy was actually called Angry Amy, but she and the sport just click.

"It's a really good fit for me. It's good for awkward, anti-social people, to be in a team environment." said Any Hansen.

Amy works in Big Sky cutting down trees with a chainsaw to make better ski runs, so her teammates notice the dedication of driving sometimes an hour and a half one way for practices.
"Her passion is so amazing. We have girls that live in town that don't have the passion she does. Like you said she's driving from Big Sky twice a week three times a week on bout weeks." said teammate Lisa Calhoun.

"Be done with practice at 10:00 at night and be driving back and not getting back until midnight she's got definite drive and she wants it." said teammate Marcie Knoff.

Roller girls are supposed to be really tough and really intense, but the thing about Angry Amy, is that she's most happy when she's practicing with the roller girlz.

"It's funny because I'm the least angry when I'm here. When I'm skating I usually have a smile on my face and it's pretty hard to get me mad when I'm skating." said Hansen.

"I've gotten to know her pretty well and I honestly think she's really sweet and really kind." said Calhoun.


Amy has been in every bout since joining the roller girlz, and her teammates appreciate her ability as a blocker.

"To me she's amazing I feel like I work really well with her I feel really at ease when I'm working with her because I know when she's out there she's doing the job she needs to be doing." said Calhoun.

"I'm just always happy when I see the back of her shirt Angry Amy when I'm coming around as a Jammer." said Knoff.
