The Mad Catter #345


How did you come up with your derby name and/or number? (And what do your teammates call you?)

My name is Cat and I had two names picked out. The Mad Catter and Catniss Ever Mean, the winning vote was The Mad Catter. My number, 345, was chosen because I am a preschool teacher and my students are 3,4, and 5 years old.
