The young Basque player joins a squad that already included María Torreblanca, Alana Gonçalo, Bojana Stevanovic, Laura Fernández, Ana Jiménez, Nuria Ríos, Conchi Satorre, Sarah Imovbioh and Aminata Traoré.
Isa Mbomio becomes the tenth member of the Melilla Sport Capital La Salle squad for next season, after reaching a renewal agreement between the club and the Basque player, who was seriously injured last season and could only contribute her bit of sand in a meeting. In this way, Paulino Puerto is very close to closing his team with a view to the long-awaited and historic participation in the Challenge League.
Teresa Isabel Mbomio (Zumárraga, 9-21-2002) is a 1.87 meter tall power forward, capable of playing near and far from the hoop. In addition, she stands out for having a lot of character, to which she adds that defensively she brings a lot of intensity and has a great ability to capture rebounds.
Regarding her career, Isa Mbomio began her training back in the 2015-2016 academic year at CB Áraba, in the children’s category, continuing the following year, although already as a cadet-age player. Later, in the summer of 2017, the Gipuzkoan decided to go to Ointxe-Araski, a club where she arrived in her first campaign (2017-2018) to combine her participation in the cadet, junior and senior teams (national category ). Already during the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 seasons she was alternating the junior with the senior.
At this point in his career, Isa Mbomio decided to try his luck away from home, signing for a historic player like Joventut de Badalona to play in the Women’s League 2, a category in which he participated in 25 games with an average of just over 13 minutes.
In this way, in the summer of 2021 he had the opportunity to become part of the MSC La Salle project and he did not think about it and packed his bags for Melilla. Unfortunately, he was seriously injured in his debut match against Costa de Almería when he had barely played three and a half minutes. Specifically, he was diagnosed with a torn cruciate ligament in his left knee that caused him to miss the entire season. Fortunately, she is fully recovered and eager to be under Paulino Puerto’s command as soon as training begins.
Finally, Mbomio’s list of winners includes a Euskadi Club Champion title, a bronze medal in the Spanish Club Championship and she was called up with the lower categories of the Spanish U15 and U16 National Team.
