La Bomba: Skater Of The Month: August 2011

This bodacious babe has been blowing up the track this season as NWA Roller Derby’s All-Star captain. Originally from Parsons, Kansas, La Bomba began skating when she was five years old. She attended a roller derby bout in Joplin, Missouri, with her best friend who is the brother of one of our own, The Professional. That was all she needed to get excited about this rapidly growing sport. She tried out for the team , the Mo-Kan Roller Girlz, and made the team in February of 2008. She loves the fact that the sport is ever changing and there is always something new to learn and practice. When she transferred to NWA in February of 2009, we knew she would be a serious asset to our league. La Bomba is a strong leader and an inspiration to aspiring skaters.

When she’s not skating La Bomba enjoys hanging with her friends and watching a good movie. She has a vast DVD collection consisting of over three hundred different films! La Bomba is close with her friends, but family always comes first. Her family is very supportive of her involvement in roller derby and loves to come watch her play.

You’ll see La Bomba bustin’ a move on the dance floor during NWA’s after parties.  When she’s not dancing, she’ll grab a beer and talk derby with fans and players alike.  La Bomba represents NWARD and deserves this honor for all her hard work and dedication she has put into her league.  We appreciate you!
