Matthew Moore, a senior on the Winters High School varsity basketball team, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. His leadership and fervor for winning provided the fuel that kept the team fired up all season long. “He took more charges during this season than anybody else and I love that,” praised head coach Brendan McShea. “He led the team in scoring against Colusa, played great defense and was a great leader on the team all the way to the end.”
Winters once boasted a prosperous Japanese community, which tragically burned on Aug. 1, 1942 when the United States was celebrating victory over Japan. While the cause of the fire has never been determined, Winters saw discrimination toward Japanese Americans following the war.
