Valeria Ceja, a Winters High School student, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. Ceja, a senior at WHS, has been preparing for the 2021 wrestling season. During the summer she kept up with her own personal workout, including running and doing what she can while social distancing. Teaming up with her brother, Anthony, they started a wrestling based class and work routine.
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.
