NEW YORK MILLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - This week's Athlete of the Week reached a very special milestone recently.

Nick Comenale, Senior, of New York Mills boys basketball became the first Marauder in 25 years to surpass 1,000 points in just 3 seasons played.

The 2013 Sports Express First Team All-Star accomplished the feat in less than 3 years, as he missed four games last year with an injury.

Comenale knocked down his 1,000 point against Mills' biggest rivals, Oriskany.

"To be able to come home and do it here in front of a great crowd, they all supported me and cheered loud, it was a really special moment," he said. "The coaching staff, and my teammates put me in such a great place to score.

"It's really special to do it here, especially with the rich tradition we have at this school."

Comenale and the Marauders are currently ranked #1 in the state in Class D boys basketball.
