Support Local Journalism

Garrett Matheson, a three sport athlete at Winters High School, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. Matheson just finished up his junior year and has been competing on the swim, basketball and track and field teams since since his freshman year. Swim coach Aaron Vande Wege noted that while recovering from a shoulder issue, Matheson showed up to practice daily and did a dry land workout during the last swim season. “He was able to dig deep and represent Winters in the final meet of the year as a relay team member,” Vande Wege said. Matheson excels in the pool and served as an American Red Cross certified and qualified lifeguard, and over the last two summers has taught Winters youth to swim. On the basketball court, which is his favorite sport, Matheson has been an asset on the defensive side of the ball. He has been working hard in the off season to improve his skills. In the spring, Matheson competes in the high jump. His personal best, so far, is 5 feet 10 inches. He also worked as a peer coach instructing his fellow Warriors on the proper technique in the high jump.
