Roller Derby was not Weston's only sport. While a student at Mount St. Mary's College, Weston played softball. She was also involved in surfing and canoeing. In 1962 she won the Hawaii canoe outrigger championship.
In 1954, Weston joined the original Roller Derby headed by promoter Leo Seltzer, becoming a favorite member of the Los Angeles Braves. Her fame increased markedly when in 1965 she was appointed captain of the San Francisco Bay Bombers. She appeared on 19 consecutive all-star teams in that sport, and was the highest-paid female athlete in the 1960s and 1970s.
Weston later married Nick Scopas (b. June 3, 1938) who was also a professional Roller Derby Skater.
