Superfast freshman Ashanti Carey is among the top scoring underclassmen in the area, and ranks just behind scoring champ Kailey Utley in Pirate goals this season.
All her life Ashanti Carey has heard people tell her she should be running track. Never mind that she has take-your-breath-away kind of speed, people knew that her parents Apollo and Amanda Carey were track stars in high school and college, and they just figured Ashanti should go into the family business, so to speak. So one day not long ago, Ashanti Carey did join a club track team, and in her first real race against real competition, she set a new club record for the 100-meter dash. Like we said, the girl is astonishingly fast. But there was one little problem Ashanti had with running track -- she just didn't like it. "Oh my god, I hated it," she said. "I gave it a try, but I almost had a nervous breakdown or something right on the …

Carrie Carpenter explains her rituals when prepping for a bout.
I am in no way a superstitious person. I don’t believe in ghosts, spirits, magic elves or any of that crap. We’ve all heard of the standard sports superstitions, mostly involving grossness and a serious lack of laundry detergent. Superstitions like unwashed jockstraps, unwashed socks and never washing a winning jersey come to mind. Derby folks are no different. I know people who won’t wash their bras or jockstraps…ever. I’m not sure if most derby grossness is the product of planning and forethought, or pure laziness. There are surely some skaters out there who have stank gear only because they are too lazy to wash it, not because they think the stink serves a higher purpose. In my case, I just recently had to get new wrist-guards because …

Roller derby columnist Carrie Carpenter explains how she handles a bout's madness.
Hi. My name is Carrie... ...and I’m a roller derby rage-a-holic. It’s suiting that we’ve assigned ourselves these “derby names.” Reflecting on some of my less shining moments in roller derby, I think to myself “Who’s that bitch wearing a Carrie suit?” Most of the time, I am a quiet, shy and even reserved person. I’m a bit of a wall flower and tend to keep to myself. People I meet are always somewhat shocked that I play roller derby. How could this seemingly passive young lady play such a rough and tumble game like roller derby? As it turns out, I fit right in. I make inappropriate jokes and hand gestures with my teammates on the side lines. I have gradually taken more of a leadership role in my league — both on and off the track. I’m bossy…

Senior Darrell Johnson’s near-triple double leads Vikings to title game berth against De Smet on Friday.
For the third time this season, archrival boys basketball programs Parkway North and Parkway Central hooked up Wednesday night. The teams traded victories in the two previous meetings, with North earning a 59-51 win in the season opener back in November, and Central claiming a 47-45 win in conference play three weeks ago. But the most important matchup of the season came Wednesday night, when the Vikings and Colts clashed one last time in the MSHSAA Class 5 District 4 semifinals, with the winner earning a shot at the district title game on Friday night. And thanks to a brilliant performance by 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior center Darrell Johnson, it was Parkway North's night, somehow outlasting Parkway Central for a 49-45 win, in front of a …

Coming back to the sport after having an injury can be a challenge, columnist Carrie Carpenter says.
I recently attended an Arch Rival Roller Girls All Stars practice. I’m still recuperating from my surgery a few weeks ago, so I was sitting by myself on a bench watching my teammates skate and do drills. Someone at practice came to talk to me for a moment and said, “It’s the hardest thing; to watch your team practice without you.” It totally sucks watching your teams practice without you. But I don’t know if it’s the hardest thing. Trying to explain a drill or move to teammates without being able to show them is harder. Watching helplessly while your team struggles to make up for missing players during a game while you get them water from behind the bench is harder. Remembering all the people that told you before the season began that you …
