Physical Medicine Roller Derby Stars
Corbyn Wierzbinksi and Nicole Woods (Physical Medicine Department) became members of the Roller Derby team for the Boulder County Bombers in March, 2015. They progressed well through the phase I and II training program and had an opportunity to try out for the travel teams in December 2015. Both made the A/B cross-overs and were able to play for the B team (Bombshells) and A team (Allstars) for the 2016 season.
They have now played in several tournaments: Besterns in Denver, May 2016; Wasatch in Salt Lake City, Utah, June 2016 where they played well enough to qualify for the playoffs in Witchita, KS in Aug 2016. They entered the tournament as 8th seed and ended up in 5th place, the best showing for their league since it was organized in 2011.
Corbyn and Nicole had four competitive playoff rounds and won 3 out of 4 of the games. One game was a win by one point and their last win was by 4 points which gave their team the 5th place title. Their latest try outs were in July 2016 and they have now qualified to play for the Allstars travel /competitive team.
Corbyn continues to play for B team and just won 1st place in the B-52 blowout tournament that was held in Longmont recently (Sept 17-18). She has also landed a place on Team Colorado and will be playing in the State Wars in January 2017.
