Winning Ways


Since Sister Lynn Winsor was featured in FACES IN THE CROWD in 1993, her list of wins and accolades at Xavier College Prep in Phoenix has piled up. This season Winsor (above, with alum and LPGA pro Cheyenne Woods, left) coached Xavier's golf team to its sixth straight state championship, and her 34th since she started coaching in '74. In 2013 she was inducted into the National High School Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame. After 43 years at the helm, Winsor, who balances coaching with her duties as a vice principal and athletic director, says she succeeds because of her athletes. "I love coaching," Winsor says. "Winning never gets old because you are so happy for the kids."
