Anahi Garcia, a Senior flyer on the Winters High School Cheer squad, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. “Anahi looked like a collegiate flyer during our cheer camp. She soaked everything in and came out as the camp MVP,” said head coach Sterling Davis. Garcia is not only one of the main flyers, but also nails her stunts, flips and brings enthusiasm and charisma to her team. “Anahi applies feedback and pushes to be better at every practice,” said coach Rachel Calvert.
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.
