Mariner set one individual milestone in Thursday's 65-53 victory over Estero in the regular season finale at Mariner.

Tritons sophomore Rodney Hunter surpassed 1,000 career points with a game-high 27 against the Wildcats. He had plenty of help as Rick Moore connected for 15 points and Cailin Nash 11. Both Hunter and Moore grabbed a team-high six rebounds.

The Tritons opened a 39-20 halftime lead and cruised the rest of the way.

"There hasn't been a 1,000-point scorer at Mariner since I've been the coach (10 years)," said Tritons coach James Harris. "It's quite an accomplishment for Hunter to be in that club. He played as an eighth grader and will finish as a five-year varsity player."

Former Tritons player Ted Dupay holds the state record with more than 3,000 points.

The Tritons (15-10) awaits the winner between Cypress Lake and North Fort Myers, which face off Monday, in the District 5A-13 Tournament semifinal round on Wednesday at Mariner.
