Laura L Dukas-Baumann landed at the top of the Bikini division at the October 2017 2nd Annual IPL West Coast Pro/Am on Saturday September 30th in Rancho Cordova, CA.
That being said, Laura is not new to victory on the IPL Bikini stage. In fact, just one year ago, Laura bested the entire Bikini Novice division at the 2016 IPL West Coast Pro/Am. At that contest Laura took 1st place in Bikini Novice Class C and won the Overall Bikini Novice title. She would also kick some serious butt in another division at that contest. But, more on that later…
At the September 2017 2nd Annual IPL West Coast Pro/Am in Rancho Cordova, CA Laura would enter four divisions. Bikini, Sports Model, Fitness Angels, and Evening Gown. It appeared that she was aiming for a day similar to what Lylian Muttakyawa accomplished at this show last year. 4 divisions, 4 wins, including an Overall title, and 4 IPL Pro Cards. And, this year, Laura L Dukas-Baumann would forgo the Novice classes and put all her eggs in the Open basket. A decision that paid off. Big time.
In Bikini Laura would take 1st place in Open Class B, and earned the coveted IPL Bikini Pro Card. Shout out to Jamie Noel (2nd) and Rachel Dolma Balunsat (3rd) who rounded out the top three. Then it was on to the Open Overall, where Laura would face off with Class A winner Dawn Vantrepotte-Davis. In the end it was Laura L Dukas-Baumann for the Overall win.
Laura L Dukas-Baumann is now part of an elite group of IPL Bikini Pros. We are excited for her Pro debut! However, Laura was not done in Cali, yet… Michael Brooks Photography.
