Keelah Hurtz (Far North Derby Dolls)

"Keelah is an up-and-comber to watch! She is an amazing skater and she is only going to get better. A wonderful person and athlete, skilled jammer, blocker, and pivot; she is the complete derby package." - Mrs. Growley

"When this jammer puts her head down watch out she is determined and coming through the pack. And if she's blocking she'll sweep your whole line before you know what hit you!" - Skittles Skarzabitch

------------------------------------------------

QWERTY (Fairbanks Rollergirls)

"QWERTY has become an awesome leader in the roller derby community throughout Alaska during 2013 and she leads by example - always striving to improve her skills and teach her teammates." - Anonymous

"Ever since the day I watched my very first FBXRG bout I have been amazed at how effortless Qwerty makes this game look. Her moves are perfectly timed and her apex jumps get me EVERY time!" - AK Metal Angel

------------------------------------------------

Hanimal (North Pole Babes in Toyland)

"Hanimal is a jammer chaser! She works great with others keeping the jammer back. She may look small but looks are deceiving!" - Anonymous

"Hanimal is focused like no other. Nothing can distract her from finding a way to get her through the pack or get her jammer through. Off the track she is involved in every community event in North Pole along with her team!" - Anonymous

"Don't EVER think that you can take this girl on and get through with your derby ego in tact! A true jammer chaser and one of NPBT's Energizer Bunnies (she never wears out!). Not only that, but she always has her heart in the game and keeps a clear focus on the game play. I know I can always depend on her to help me through and keep the pack back. She's the bees knees!" - AK Metal Angel

------------------------------------------------

Dolla Billz (Denali Destroyer Dolls)

"Dolla is an Alaskan derby star and should be recognized as such. She has been an integral force in building DDD and she is a wonderful friend to all derby skaters in Alaska." - Mrs. Growley

"Dolla is a no-holds-barred blocker with attitude- her objective- to play O and D in one hard hit." - CranBEARy Crush (Ref)

"Dolla Billz continually sacrifices everything for her team. She devotes herself to all aspects of the organization; paperwork, finances, training, and fitness. She has been recognized by numerous worldwide-level trainers for her abilities and dedication to the sport. She is known and feared on the track by most every skater, but is the friendliest person off the track." - Anonymous

"What a hardcore player! I love this woman and all of her efforts to see the sport of derby succeed. I've been lucky to have been pulled into this woman's circle and I have never looked back. My goal is to push myself as hard as she pushes herself and still be able to stand at the end of the day!" - Keelah Hurtz

"I have had the pleasure of skating against this woman a couple times now and, wow...she's a wrecking ball AND a brick house. She's loved by many and it's easy I see why. Her attitude shines on the court and I hardly ever see her without a smile on the track." - AK Metal Angel

-------------------------------------------------

Sheeza Maniac (Boom Town Derby Dames)

"She is awesome, she hits like a brick house while being effective. She is always smiling and is very respectful to other skaters." - Anonymous

"Her name says it all!" - Skittles Skarzabitch

------------------------------------------------

AK Metal Angel (North Pole Babes in Toyland)

"When AK is in front of you, you're done, son. She somehow manages to take up the entire track all by herself! She's a real straight shooter. A class act on and off the track." - Marilyn MakeUMoan Roe

"AK ROCKS! She is one of the hardest hitters and always has a great attitude!" - Hanimal

If you have any comments you would like to add to this article, feel free to send them to elwood.bruise.39@gmail.com and I'll be more than happy to add them as soon as I possibly can.

Also, in order to include a photo of everyone, I need at least 5 pictures to make a slideshow on here. As you can see I have one of QWERTY and I also have one of another skater on this list. So if you know of a picture of any of the skaters listed above you would like me to post on here, contact the photographer who took the picture and have him/her send me that picture to elwood.bruise.39@gmail.com. I hate to do it this way, but searching for pictures for both Montana and Alaska and getting the proper permission from photographers has proven to be incredibly difficult for me and extremely time-consuming. Searching for pictures for those two states alone is, literally, holding everything else up at this point. So I apologize if pictures aren't in these articles, but I've done everything I can. It's time to get going on the rest of the articles from all 6 states/provinces.
