Bio: Shovey Chase has been winning and bruising with the Sockit Wenches since 2005. Though she grew up playing all kinds of sports — mainly softball, basketball, volleyball, and pious abstinence — she thinks roller derby is the most fun, challenging, stressful, and stress-relieving sport of them all.

She was one of the main organizers of last fall’s first-ever Makin’ Bacon Derby Camp as well as Northwest Knockdown, the 2008 WFTDA National Championship co-hosted by the Rat City Rollergirls in Portland.
