Dani Johnson, a senior at Winters High School, is Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. From the intangible efforts to the ferocity she plays with, Johnson has proven she leads by example on the varsity volleyball team. “Dani has been on fire! Her attacks, tips and serves have been on point dominating on the court,” raved head coach Mari Chavez. “She has improved tremendously on her defensive blocks and has shut down many strong attacks from our opponents. She’s fearless!”
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.
