With the pioneering spirit of athletes like Duran, new horizons open for future generations. Thank you Elisha Duran for laying the foundation and offering your shoulders upon which giants will stand.
Duran made it her No. 1 goal at the onset of the winter sports season to be the first girl in Taos to win a state title in wrestling. With the inclusion of a girls division at the 2017-18 state championship in Rio Rancho, the dedicated female grappler was granted the chance to test her mettle. Mission accomplished. Duran dominated the 131-pound division by pinning all three of her opponents despite having a significant height and weight disadvantage.
