TC3 Represented on All-MSAC Team
Two Tompkins Cortland Community College softball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference softball team. Freshmen Seneca Baldwin (Oneonta H.S./Oneonta) and Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Lansing) were among the 15 selected to the team. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.

Panthers Fall in Regional Final
The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball season came to an end n the Region III-A championship Friday, losing the best-of-three series to Herkimer County Community College two games to none. The Panthers lost by scores of 8-0 and 13-3 to finish the years as the Region III-A runners up. With the championship, Herkimer advances to the NJCAA national tournament with the win.
In the championship series opener, TC3 was victimized by a big first inning for Herkimer. With two outs and one run in, it looked like the Panthers would get out of the inning with an infield pop-up, but two fielders collided and the ball fell to the ground. By the time the frame was over, Herkimer had scored five runs. After a scoreless second inning, the Panthers put runners on second and third in the third inning, but couldnít push across a run. Herkimer added a run in the bottom of the third and two more in the fourth to make it 8-0. In the fifth, TC3 again put two runners on base but couldnít score, ending the game with an 8-0 final.
The second game saw Herkimer score two in each of the first two innings to lead 4-0. In the TC3 half of the second, the Panthers finally got on the board. Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Lansing) opened with a single, moved to second on an error, went to third on a single by Molly Hitchcock (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira), and came in on single by Casey Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego). One run was all the Panthers could muster that inning, leaving the bases loaded and the score at 4-1 after two innings. Neither team could score in the third, but Herkimer opened the lead to 10-1 with a six-run fourth. In the fifth, Herkimer scored three more, bringing the score to 13-1 heading into the bottom of the inning. In the TC3 half, Macey Morse (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) opened with a walk. Two outs later Policay drove the ball over the fence for her fourth home run of the playoffs, making the score 13-3. A ground out by the next batter ended the game and season for the Panthers.
Policay and Katie Huston (Chenango Valley H.S./Binghamton) were named to the all-tournament team.
