Malia Fisher

FANS CHOICE WINTER ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Who: Malia Fisher

School: North Gwinnett

Sport: Basketball

Class: Sophomore

Highlights: Scored a game-high 26 points in a region victory over Peachtree Ridge

Coach Amanda Heil’s take: “Malia Fisher is a very special player and the most exciting part about that is the fact that she is only a sophomore. Malia led our team in scoring as a freshman and she is well on her way to doubling that total from last year. Through 17 games, she is averaging 18 points per game and can play lockdown defense as she also leads our team in steals. She draws a lot of attention and other teams’ best defenders and she continues to get the job done. Her athleticism paired with still only being in 10th grade means that the sky is the limit for Malia. Besides how talented she is on the floor, she is a pleasure to coach and she works hard while still having fun and maintains a 3.6 GPA.”
