Athlete of the Week - Erin Schmidt, JR., Fillmore Central

There were a lot of heroes in the Fillmore Central Panthers’ upset of the Class C-2 No. 1-rated Superior Wildcats on Saturday. One important defensive play was turned in, however, by 6-foot-1 junior Erin Schmidt, as she blocked a 3-point attempt late in the game that helped seal the win. Schmidt scored nine points and pulled down a team-high eight rebounds in the upset win. Earlier in the week, Schmidt scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the field and went 3 of 4 at the free-throw line in the Panthers’ 67-38 win over Central City.
