Stevie Hitts #13

She/Her

 

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

Derby Name/Number Story: I have always turned to Music when I am happy, sad, good, and bad. Fleetwood Mac, specifically Stevie Nicks has always been my favorite go to. Fleetwood Smack is a really popular Derby name I found out. So I went with a variation of Stevie Nicks and became Stevie Hitts. My favorite number and the one that has been the luckiest for me is 13 so when I saw that I might be able to have it, I took it and ran (well...skated). Teammates call me Stevie

 

What made you decide to try roller derby?

In 2014 I had surgery that took me out of work and life for about 7 weeks. During that time a good friend called and said "Hey I am picking you up for Roller Derby." We went to a game at the Civic Center. I came home and told Mr. Stevie "I wanna do that." He said "I don't know about that." In 2019, the time was right but the world was not.

 

A customer from my waitressing job told me that I should join the New Recruits and watch for an announcement on the Team Facebook. I waited, watched, and emailed. Finally I saw it. I went to the info night and haven't looked back. It has become a lifestyle!

 

How long have you been playing roller derby?

January of 2021

 

What's your favorite thing about MedCity Roller Derby?

My Derby Mentors/Teammates support.

What are you most excited about this season?

Everything- The best is always yet to come!

 

Do you have a game day ritual or routine?

HYDRATE and I created a playlist of my favorite songs and listen to them while I am doing busy work before heading to a game. I meditate for about 10 minutes right before open skate and then it is game business as usual.

 

What is your favorite or least favorite drill/skill at practice and why?

Least favorite skill is plow stops. I fell pretty hard on my bottom day one of New Recruits and that kind of pain sticks with a person.

 

If you could live or visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Live- By my family in Arizona

Visit- Mr. Hitts and I want to go to Hawaii someday

 

Which three words would you use to describe yourself?

Inquisitive, Nice-ish, and Determined

 

Do you have a favorite song that gets you hyped up for games or practice?

Pretty much anything by Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, or P!NK

 

If you had to choose an animal to be, which would you choose and why?

I would be a Crow. I could fly free, find shiny trinkets, and caw my day away. I have always loved the mysteriousness and intelligence they have.
