(WKTV) - The Athlete of the Week this week is Domenique Talerico from New York Mills girls basketball.

Talerico, a senior, surpassed the 1,000 point scoring mark on Wednesday, and hit the game-winning shot to beat Poland in the Section Quarterfinals.

Prior to that, the fourth-year varsity player also scored 39 pts. on Saturday's win over Stockbridge Valley in the first round.

Her goal now? To win a section title.

"We have our sixth man crew, our fan section and they're great support," she said. "They kept us going, our coaches kept us going, my teammates kept me going and I know they support me."
