Skater / 116 Jinx Jackalope

jinx-jackalope-diego-rollers

Born on the Texas prairie, Jinx wasn't always the fastest or strongest jackalope, but she was determined to work hard at no matter what laid ahead of her. She discovered roller derby alongside her best friend, and while Jinx was too busy handling life at the time - she enthusiastically watched her friend pursue the sport, knowing that one day, she too would be able to leap & bound just like her. After meeting Mr. Jackalope, and taking one giant hop to California, Jinx found her nest at San Diego Derby Dolls in 2013. She learned to use her fluffy tail to her advantage, started eating more vegetables, and is having a dang good time doing so.
