The fans spoke, and we listened…we’re bringing skater of the month back! Congrats to October’s skater of the month, Diana Hitcha!

Check out this short interview we had and learn more about your local Tallahassee Rollergirls!

How did you pick your derby name?

Honestly, I had a hard time picking my derby name. I especially liked the punny names that took you awhile to get. I also wanted to incorporate what matters to me and so I thought about how I could include my family. Diana comes from my grandmother’s name Diane and my number 39 is from my dads police badge number.

What position do you play?

Blocker/Jammer

How long have you been skating and why did you join? Any skating/athletic background?

I started skating for the Fort Myers Derby Girls in 2011 with no prior skating experience. After having gone to my first bout, I knew I wanted to play but had some reservations at first. I was going through a lot and needed something new to take my mind off of that and to push myself to do things that were out of my element. It’s been almost 4 years since and I still think it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
