Madeline MacMahon, a senior at Winters High School, is Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. MacMahon placed first out of the 70 female competitors at the NSCIF Masters meet. “Madeline has won every single event she has competed in all season. Once a club swimmer, Madeline’s finely-tuned technique in the water combined with her athleticism and determination make her a highly accomplished swimmer,” said head coach Melanie Ellison.
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.
