Matt Moore, a senior at Winters High School, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. Moore’s pitching led the varsity baseball team to a win in Round One of the playoffs. “Matt has led by example all year. Proving to his teammates time and time again that he will give every single ounce of effort he has for them,” said coach Austin Calvert. “He is the definition of a Warrior and is a prime example of what it means to be a player in the Winters Baseball Program. I could not be more proud of the young man he is on and off the baseball field.”
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.
