Athena Latina of the Denali Destroyer Dolls makes some history in these lists this year as she was named as both the top coach and an all-star. Here is what some of the voters had to say about her...

"This latin lover is deadly agile on the track- calculating any weakness in the pack and blasting through as if she was never there. Her dedication to the game and her team rocket her to the top of my list." - CranBEARy Crush (Ref)

"Great sportsmanship, always positive and upbeat on and off the track. She jams with passion, and is jukey and slick. She is a great jamming role model." - Anonymous

"Team captain, injured at the tournament last year. Rather than just sitting it out and having a pity party, she came back after collarbone surgery to take on the job as training coach for the team. She also goes to other league functions, helping to maintain a good level of derby love and camaraderie when possible. That's what a coach should do! Stand up and support others.It's not about you, it's about the team." - Anonymous

"Athena Latina is a positive role model for women athletes and has some fierce tenacity on the track." - Salmon Ella

"*Swoon*, what I wouldn't do to skate like her, marry her, have her children, hahahahaha! Just joking! But not really! I am so thankful to this woman for all of her support and advice. I love to watch her skate and I hope to exercise such solid form someday!" - Keelah Hurtz
