Skater of the Month: Pia Mess

Pia Mess is a woman of many talents. She came to SVRG from Seattle's Rat City Rollergirls (after a brief tenure with San Francisco's ShEvil Dead) and has rocked our world as both player and coach. She is a terrifying blocker with the power to knock you on your ass and the agility to hover and cage you like an animal. She also frequently dons the jammer cap, and the combination of her speed, grace, and power often yields the highest scoring jams of the bout. Her wide-ranging talents on the track make her an effective coach, where her extensive experience helps cultivate SVRG's strategies.
