School is out and summer is here, but that doesn’t mean the Express is done with sports.
Some of the Express editorial team members played youth sports as well as competed as Warriors on Winters High School teams throughout all four years of high school.
The Winters community has indeed embraced the notion of small-town sports, and have continued to uplift and support our local youth in their endeavors.
Our staff writers will be covering the Winter Little League All Star Juniors, 50/70 and softball teams and the Winters summer swim team to share highlights and notable athletes with the community.
We are looking to coaches and the community to help nominate WLL and swim team athletes from all divisions.
This editor also appreciates that there is a wide variety of athletic opportunities available in neighboring communities, and wants to make sure that all Winters youth who are participating and competing get a nod for their efforts.
The Express is looking to the Winters community to reach out and nominate an Athlete of the Week or to tell us about an exciting happening in the world of sports.
Cheer, swim, horse competitions, travel teams — if they are rocking it, we want to hear about it.
To be considered for the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week, nominations and supporting content must be submitted by Monday at Noon.
How to nominate
Nominate a local athlete for consideration as a Pisani’s Athlete of the Week at tinyurl.com/4f78a6y2.
Include as many details and points of contact so our staff can reach out to coaches for comments about the athlete.
Community members are also encouraged to draft their own Athlete of the Week write up and submit them through the same form.
If including a hi-resolution photo of the athlete, make sure it is a profile photo of the individual facing the camera from at least the waist up.
Individuals should not be too far away or the photo may not print clearly.
Do not send photos that have images, graphics, logos or social media filters.
The community is invited to share article pitches with us about local athletes who are participating in competitions, races or making efforts to reach personal fitness goals.
