Cross Country The cross country team sent the two qualifying athletes to the California Interscholastic Federation, Cross Country Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno to compete as Individual Runners. On a 5,000 meter course, the Warriors competed against division 5 schools from the whole state. Brandon Colter ran against 201 runners, finishing as the 151 runner at 18:00.3. The time set by the first place runner in his race was 15:39.3. Liliana Rodriguez competed against 197 athletes, coming in the 132nd runner with a time of 22:01.2, The first place time in her race was 17:13.4. This was the second run of this length for the Warriors, both set a personal record. Girls varsity basketball The girls varsity basketball squad took the court on Saturday, Nov. 30 against Buckingham Charter High School in a pre-season exhibition. Leading the charge was freshman point-guard, Mickayla Passantino. With her aggressiveness on offense and defense, the Warriors held the Knights to only a 6-point lead going into the fourth quarter. However, the Knights would maintain that lead and clench a 26-17 victory over the Warriors in a hard-fought game. The girls varsity team took on two new players this year–freshman Mickayla Passantino and sophomore Gianna Carrion. Boys JV basketball The junior varsity boys basketball team laced up their shoes in a pre-season showdown against I-80 rivals, Buckingham Charter High School. The game’s forecast was cloudy with a chance of 3’s, and Memo Valadez rained down seven of his own while teammate Marcus Lopez took care of business inside the arch. The resilient Knights would weather the storm, however, and snag a 58-48 victory. Albeit a loss, the future looks bright for this young Warriors team. ]]>
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.
