Mady Winters Named Athlete of Week
The Wetzel Chronicle Athlete of the week for April 14, 2021 is Magnolia Senior three sports star Mady Winters.
Winters had an exceptional week of basketball capped off by her performance against Wheeling Central on Thursday night in New Martinsville.
Behind her big night the Blue Eagles avenged an early season defeat with a 61-49 victory.
Winters poured in 19 points and collared 17 rebounds during the senior night victory.
While double-doubles have been the norm for her this season, none have been as special.
During the game she scored on a lay up mid-way through the fourth to give her 1,531 points in just three years of play to make her the all-time leading scorer in Magnolia girls high school basketball history.
To add to that she grabbed her 1,000 rebound making her one of only three in school history to accomplish that feat.
There are always what-ifs but in this case if she wouldn’t have suffered a injury her junior season which kept her out the entire year, she would undoubtedly been far ahead in both scoring and rebounding.
Congratulations to Mady Winters.
