Crush is a member of the Turtle Sliders and their captain. They started competing in Marble League Showdown 2019 and have so far been unable to progress any further.

History

Pre-Marble League

Crush is from the city of Aslipi and used to compete in the Turtle Sliders' minor league team, the Hatchling Skidders. After they retired from sports, they went into acting and appeared in a crime documentary produced by the Non-Descript Entertainment Company about colorful fish being kidnapped. In mid-2018 Shelly was recruiting members to the Turtle Sliders after the departure of most of the team's members due to their rivals, the Oceanics, leaving the Seven Seas Circuit to join the Marble League. Crush was convinced to join the Sliders by their younger sibling, Squirt, who had always looked up to Crush's leadership while they were in the Skidders. Frank followed them and became the reserve member.[1]

2019

The Turtle Sliders tie with the Limers in Collison

The Turtle Sliders began training in Aslipi for the 2019 Seven Seas Circuit when they received news of the Marble League Showdown which featured a fan vote competition to determine two of the places. Their fans voted for the team in overwhelming numbers, using their previous previous rivalry with Oceanics to attract attention. Along with their past rivalry, their logo and reunion story were also praised. In the end they finished second in the vote behind the Hornets, and were entered into the Marble League Showdown 2019.

The Turtle Sliders competing in Balancing

As the team trained, they focused on honing their synergy as a team. This paid off when they came 5th in Event 2, Collison. Unfortunately the other three events did not go as well. Squirt came 9th in Event 1, the Sand Rally, after struggling to reach the top 4 after getting caught behind a gaggle of competitors. Dash led for a lot of the Funnel Race but ended up consecutively falling through the final two funnels finishing in 10th and dropping them to 10th overall. The team had trained for the final event, Balancing, but their nerves got the better of them and they could only manage an 11th place finish, finishing in 11th overall, failing to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.[1]

2020

The Turtle Sliders face the Jawbreakers in the Halfpipe

The Sliders started to train at their training facility, Slider Academy. The academy was certified by the JMRC but was severely underequipped. Shelly started an athletic training program, although not all of the rest of the team had the time to take part.[2]

The Sliders started off Marble League Showdown 2020 by finishing just outside the top half in 7th in the Relay Run. This was followed by a less good 9th place finish in the Halfpipe. Dash and Shelly got the Sliders' only top half finish by coming sixth in the Black Hole Funnel. Despite this they dropped to 9th overall. Unfortunately Squirt could only manage an eighth place finish in the final event, the Sand Mogul Race, making the Sliders finish in 9th overall. Once again the Turtle Sliders failed to qualify for the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers.

2021

Crush lining up for the Marble League 2021 Practice Race

During the offseason the Sliders were invited to take part in the Marble League 2021 Practice Race, where Crush participated in a sand race, finishing 13th out of 28 racers from all teams. Crush finished ahead of Rapidly from the Savage Speeders, and so at the time the Sliders were the only team with a 100% win rate against the Speeders, as it was the first time they had ever competed together.
