Since 1912, Mars High School has been known as the Planets. For the record, there is no correlation between the planet and this small town other than the popular roadside "Spaceship". About 20 years ago the school changed the lettermen jackets to include "Fightin'". This was an attempt to make the Planets more fierce and intimidating. Since then Mars has been the Fightin' Planets.

At one time, the Williamsport area was considered the lumber capital of the world. It was reported that more millionaires per capita were living in the Williamsport area than anywhere in the county. The community still boasts Millionaire Row, where the lumber barons built their houses, each one, bigger and more elaborate than the previous one. When the school started its athletic program in the late 1800s, the Millionaire nickname was a unique and creative way to honor the lumber history.
