Winters Twins Enjoy Banner Year
Mike and Mark Winters of New Martinsville are having another banner year playing for the PAW West 14 and under AAU basketball team. After going 63-5 last year – and winning nine tournaments, two second places, and a third place in the USA National in Erie, Pa. – the coaches decided to up the level of competition this year and the team has played in both the King James Classic in Akron, Ohio and the Solon Classic outside of Cleveland.
This season their record to date stands at 35-4 with six tournament wins and a second place finish. They finished 3-1 in the King James Classic.
