Center’s Jordon Duran goes for a pin — achieved in only 19 seconds — of Ignacio’s Cayle Montoya at 106 pounds during a Del Norte High School-hosted triangular on Friday, Feb. 12.  The Vikings are combining forces this winter with Sierra Grande, similar to DNHS with Monte Vista — meaning five schools were represented at the event, which featured just 13 bouts. C-SG competed in 10 of those, winning sevenDuran dropped his second bout at 106 by 13-3 major decision to DNHS’ Malachi Gallegos and is scheduled to see more action this weekend. Up first is a Feb. 19 triangular hosted by Trinidad, followed by a tri the next day all the way out at easternmost CHSAA outpost Holly. Results from a slated Feb. 17 dual at Walsenburg John Mall, however, were unavailable at press time.
