This week's Athletes of the Week are Mars soccer player Amber Fichter and Ringgold football player Nico Law. Click here to read the story.

Amber Fichter, Mars

Last week: Fichter has led Mars to a 14-0-2 record this season. Backed by her offense, the Planets have won their past three games by a combined 33-0. The only games Mars didn't win came against Class AAA powers Norwin (12-1-2) and Pine-Richland (9-4-2).

Check this out: Mars needed someone to replace Karli Paracca, who scored 35 goals last year but is out this season with a knee injury. Fichter has filled in nicely, closing in on 30 goals before the regular season wraps up. Mars' final game before the playoffs is Saturday against Mt. Lebanon.
