Catching up with Andrea Duran

Selma native and former Selma High softball player Andrea Duran stands in front of the scoreboard at the field that is named after her. The softball field was named Duran Diamond in 2011.

Andrea Duran just keeps on winning. The Olympic gold winner and former Selma High School softball star helped her USSSA Florida Pride team to a championship in the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Championship Series on Aug. 24.

Duran hit a two-run homerun in the bottom of the fourth inning in a 5-0 victory for her team over the Chicago Bandits that forced a deciding game three. Duran came through once again in the clinching game with a run-scoring double in the Prides 2-1 victory over the Bandits.

Duran finished with four RBIs in the two games. It was her second NPF championship with the pride. She won another in 2010.
