Panthers Ends Season on High Note

Sunday, May 03, 2015

TC3 softball

The 2015 season came to a close on a high note for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team Sunday. The Panthers swept a doubleheader from SUNY Delhi, winning by scores of 9-1 and 12-4. The Panthers end the year with a record of 5-17.

GAME 1: TC3 9, Delhi 1 (5 innings, run rule)
The Panthers wasted little time taking control of game one. In the bottom of the first inning, Genesis Suarez (Liberty H.S./Liberty) led off by drawing a walk and eventually came around to score on a two-out double by Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton). After Forehand kept Delhi off the board again in the top of the second, the Panthers blew it open in the bottom of the frame. A walk and five hits, including a two-run double by Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) and a three-run home run by Forehand, helped the Panthers plate six runs to lead 7-0 after two innings.

While Forehand was keeping the Delhi bats silent, the Panthers loaded the bases in the bottom of the third, but couldn’t add to the lead. The visiting Broncos finally broke through in the top of the fourth, taking advantage of a TC3 error to score once, but a nice unassisted double play by shortstop Kayleigh Hotchkin (Lansing H.S./Lansing) ended the threat with the score 7-1. Two more TC3 runs in the bottom of the fourth followed by a scoreless top of the fifth for Delhi made the final score 9-1 in favor of the Panthers.

Forehand earned the win, allowing just one unearned run while scattering five hits and striking out two. She also starred at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double, a home run, and four RBI. Ciara Tallman (Cortland H.S./Cortland) went 2-for-3 with a double as six different Panthers recorded at least one base hit.

GAME 2: TC3 12, Delhi 4
The second game followed a similar pattern as the first as TC3 jumped ahead early. In the top of the first, the first four Panthers to come to bat reached bases, with Forehand driving in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single to start the scoring. One out later Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) plated two more as TC3 jumped out to an early lead. By the time the top half of the inning ended, TC3 had plated five runs. The Panthers gave one of those runs back in the bottom of the inning, committing three errors to help Delhi get on the board without recording a hit. The 5-1 score became 5-2 when the Broncos added a run in the second, but the fourth inning saw TC3 benefit from some sloppy play from Delhi by turning one walk and two errors into two runs to make the score 7-2 in the middle of the fourth inning.

In the fifth, Delhi scored twice to and had two runners on base, but Forehand came up big, inducing an infield pop-up and then striking out the final batter of the inning to hold the score at 7-4. In the sixth, Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) laced a two-out double down the line and then scored on a single by Morse, making it 8-4. After Forehand turned in a 1-2-3 bottom of the inning, TC3 sealed the win with a four-run seventh inning, led by Seychelle DeChellis (Lansing H.S./Lansing) stroking a two-run double. A single Delhi run in the bottom of the seventh made the final 12-4. Suarez led the 11-hit attack by going 3-for-5. Andrews, DeChellis, and Morse each went 2-for-5, with Morse driving in four runs. Forehand earned the win in the circle, going all seven innings and allowing three earned runs and striking out four.

With the season over, the final season statistics show three Panthers finished the year with a batting average over .300. Andrews led the team in hitting at .338 followed by Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) at .315 and Forehand at .314. Andrews led team with six of the team’s 15 doubles, and Forehand had three of the team’s four home runs. Forehand also was the team leader in runs batted in, finishing with 21 of the team’s 54 RBI. As a pitcher, Forehand earned all five of TC3’s wins, throwing 13 complete games among her 18 appearances.

Panthers Ends Season on High Note

Sunday, May 03, 2015

TC3 softball

The 2015 season came to a close on a high note for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team Sunday. The Panthers swept a doubleheader from SUNY Delhi, winning by scores of 9-1 and 12-4. The Panthers end the year with a record of 5-17.

GAME 1: TC3 9, Delhi 1 (5 innings, run rule)
The Panthers wasted little time taking control of game one. In the bottom of the first inning, Genesis Suarez (Liberty H.S./Liberty) led off by drawing a walk and eventually came around to score on a two-out double by Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton). After Forehand kept Delhi off the board again in the top of the second, the Panthers blew it open in the bottom of the frame. A walk and five hits, including a two-run double by Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) and a three-run home run by Forehand, helped the Panthers plate six runs to lead 7-0 after two innings.

While Forehand was keeping the Delhi bats silent, the Panthers loaded the bases in the bottom of the third, but couldn’t add to the lead. The visiting Broncos finally broke through in the top of the fourth, taking advantage of a TC3 error to score once, but a nice unassisted double play by shortstop Kayleigh Hotchkin (Lansing H.S./Lansing) ended the threat with the score 7-1. Two more TC3 runs in the bottom of the fourth followed by a scoreless top of the fifth for Delhi made the final score 9-1 in favor of the Panthers.

Forehand earned the win, allowing just one unearned run while scattering five hits and striking out two. She also starred at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double, a home run, and four RBI. Ciara Tallman (Cortland H.S./Cortland) went 2-for-3 with a double as six different Panthers recorded at least one base hit.

GAME 2: TC3 12, Delhi 4
The second game followed a similar pattern as the first as TC3 jumped ahead early. In the top of the first, the first four Panthers to come to bat reached bases, with Forehand driving in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single to start the scoring. One out later Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) plated two more as TC3 jumped out to an early lead. By the time the top half of the inning ended, TC3 had plated five runs. The Panthers gave one of those runs back in the bottom of the inning, committing three errors to help Delhi get on the board without recording a hit. The 5-1 score became 5-2 when the Broncos added a run in the second, but the fourth inning saw TC3 benefit from some sloppy play from Delhi by turning one walk and two errors into two runs to make the score 7-2 in the middle of the fourth inning.

In the fifth, Delhi scored twice to and had two runners on base, but Forehand came up big, inducing an infield pop-up and then striking out the final batter of the inning to hold the score at 7-4. In the sixth, Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) laced a two-out double down the line and then scored on a single by Morse, making it 8-4. After Forehand turned in a 1-2-3 bottom of the inning, TC3 sealed the win with a four-run seventh inning, led by Seychelle DeChellis (Lansing H.S./Lansing) stroking a two-run double. A single Delhi run in the bottom of the seventh made the final 12-4. Suarez led the 11-hit attack by going 3-for-5. Andrews, DeChellis, and Morse each went 2-for-5, with Morse driving in four runs. Forehand earned the win in the circle, going all seven innings and allowing three earned runs and striking out four.

With the season over, the final season statistics show three Panthers finished the year with a batting average over .300. Andrews led the team in hitting at .338 followed by Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) at .315 and Forehand at .314. Andrews led team with six of the team’s 15 doubles, and Forehand had three of the team’s four home runs. Forehand also was the team leader in runs batted in, finishing with 21 of the team’s 54 RBI.

Sunday, May 03, 2015

TC3 softball

The 2015 season came to a close on a high note for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team Sunday. The Panthers swept a doubleheader from SUNY Delhi, winning by scores of 9-1 and 12-4. The Panthers end the year with a record of 5-17.

GAME 1: TC3 9, Delhi 1 (5 innings, run rule)
The Panthers wasted little time taking control of game one. In the bottom of the first inning, Genesis Suarez (Liberty H.S./Liberty) led off by drawing a walk and eventually came around to score on a two-out double by Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton). After Forehand kept Delhi off the board again in the top of the second, the Panthers blew it open in the bottom of the frame. A walk and five hits, including a two-run double by Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) and a three-run home run by Forehand, helped the Panthers plate six runs to lead 7-0 after two innings.

While Forehand was keeping the Delhi bats silent, the Panthers loaded the bases in the bottom of the third, but couldn’t add to the lead. The visiting Broncos finally broke through in the top of the fourth, taking advantage of a TC3 error to score once, but a nice unassisted double play by shortstop Kayleigh Hotchkin (Lansing H.S./Lansing) ended the threat with the score 7-1. Two more TC3 runs in the bottom of the fourth followed by a scoreless top of the fifth for Delhi made the final score 9-1 in favor of the Panthers.

Forehand earned the win, allowing just one unearned run while scattering five hits and striking out two. She also starred at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double, a home run, and four RBI. Ciara Tallman (Cortland H.S./Cortland) went 2-for-3 with a double as six different Panthers recorded at least one base hit.

GAME 2: TC3 12, Delhi 4
The second game followed a similar pattern as the first as TC3 jumped ahead early. In the top of the first, the first four Panthers to come to bat reached bases, with Forehand driving in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single to start the scoring. One out later Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) plated two more as TC3 jumped out to an early lead. By the time the top half of the inning ended, TC3 had plated five runs. The Panthers gave one of those runs back in the bottom of the inning, committing three errors to help Delhi get on the board without recording a hit. The 5-1 score became 5-2 when the Broncos added a run in the second, but the fourth inning saw TC3 benefit from some sloppy play from Delhi by turning one walk and two errors into two runs to make the score 7-2 in the middle of the fourth inning.

In the fifth, Delhi scored twice to and had two runners on base, but Forehand came up big, inducing an infield pop-up and then striking out the final batter of the inning to hold the score at 7-4. In the sixth, Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) laced a two-out double down the line and then scored on a single by Morse, making it 8-4. After Forehand turned in a 1-2-3 bottom of the inning, TC3 sealed the win with a four-run seventh inning, led by Seychelle DeChellis (Lansing H.S./Lansing) stroking a two-run double. A single Delhi run in the bottom of the seventh made the final 12-4. Suarez led the 11-hit attack by going 3-for-5. Andrews, DeChellis, and Morse each went 2-for-5, with Morse driving in four runs. Forehand earned the win in the circle, going all seven innings and allowing three earned runs and striking out four.

With the season over, the final season statistics show three Panthers finished the year with a batting average over .300. Andrews led the team in hitting at .338 followed by Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) at .315 and Forehand at .314.

The Panthers finished with three hits: Ciara Tallman (Cortland H.S./Cortland) singled in the second inning for the other TC3 hit.

GAME 2: Genesee 5, TC3 1

Genesee answered in the bottom of the first, taking advantage of a TC3 error to score three times. The Panthers again put a runner in scoring position in the second, but again failed to score a run. In the third Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) led off with a single, moved to second on a single by Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca), took third on a ground out, and then came in to score on a double steal attempt. After the run scored, the Panthers again loaded the bases, and again left three on the bases, giving them seven stranded through the first three innings.

In the bottom of the third, the Cougars answered TC3’s run with a run of their own, and then added a score in the fourth to make it 5-1. The Panthers were set down in order in the fifth and sixth, but put together a final rally in the seventh. Genesis Suarez (Liberty H.S./Liberty) led off with a single, Trexler walked, and Andrews singled to load the bases with no outs. With the tying run at the plate, TC3’s rally fizzled, with a pair of strikeouts and ground out to end the game with the Panthers leaving the bases loaded for the third time in seven innings.

Broome got on the board early in game two, scoring four times in the second inning. While the Panthers’ offense struggled, Broome tacked on two runs in each the fifth and sixth innings before TC3 could plate a run in the sixth to make it 8-1 heading into the last frame. In the top of the seventh, Broome exploded for six runs, and when the Panthers couldn’t answer, the final score was 14-1.

Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamston H.S./Parish) was the lone Panther to record multiple hits in game two, going 2-for-3 and scoring the only TC3 run.

The Panthers host Herkimer College Saturday.


Panthers Drop Home Opener

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

TC3 softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team dropped its home opener Tuesday, getting swept by Monroe Community College 12-4 and 8-0. The Panthers drop to 1-5 overall and in Region III with the losses while Monroe stands at 2-2 in Region III and 5-17 overall.

GAME 1: Monroe 12, TC3 4 (5 innings, run rule)
The Panthers fell behind early, giving up five runs in the first inning and two more in the second. After keeping the Tribunes off the board in the top of the third the Panthers put a run across in the bottom when Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) lifted a double to left and then scored on a single by Kayleigh Hotchkin (Lansing H.S./Lansing). Monroe got the run back in the fourth and then added four in the top of the fifth to lead 12-1. In the bottom of the fifth, the Panthers put together a two-out rally. Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamston H.S./Parish) singled and moved to second on walk to Hotchkin. Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) followed with a drive to soggy right-center field that turned into an inside-the-park home run. With the score now 12-8, Monroe recorded the final out to end the game in five innings.

Five Panthers recorded hits, led by a 2-for-2 effort from Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca). Morse took the loss in her collegiate debut in the circle.

GAME 1: Monroe 8, TC3 0 (5 innings, run rule)
The Panthers threatened in both of the first two innings, putting runners in scoring position but failing to push across a run in each frame. Defensively, Forehand allowed just one baserunner over the first two innings, and that was on a walk. The third inning proved to be the turning point, as TC3 was set down in order each of the final three innings while Monroe started circling the bases. In the third, the Tribunes took advantage of three TC3 errors to score three runs. In the fourth, three TC3 walks came back to cost the Panthers when Monroe belted a grand slam to make it 7-0. The game ended in the fifth when Monroe scored again, making the final 8-0.

The Panthers play at SUNY Broome Thursday.

GAME 1: TC3 9, Mohawk Valley 6
After falling behind 4-0 in the first inning, the Panthers rallied with a huge third inning. TC3 scored all nine runs in the top half of the inning, highlighted by a grand slam home run from Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca). After Mohawk Valley answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning to pull within 9-6, pitcher Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) kept the slate clean the rest of the way to secure the win.

Andrews finished game one 2-for-4 at the plate. Genesis Suarez (Liberty H.S./Liberty) went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. Forehand worked the complete game in the circle for the win.

GAME 2: Mohawk Valley 11, TC3 3 (6 innings, run rule)
Just like game one, Mohawk Valley scored four runs in the first. This time, the Hawks were able to add to the lead before the Panthers could respond, plating a run in the second to make it 5-0. TC3 managed a run to cut it to 5-1, but Mohawk Valley scored three in the fourth to make it 8-1. A pair of TC3 runs in the fifth made it 8-3, but Mohawk Valley scored three times in the sixth to make the final 11-3.

Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamston H.S./Parish) was the lone Panther to record multiple hits, going 2-for-3 with a double. Forehand also doubled as part of a 1-for-3 effort.

Rough Season Opener for TC3 Softball

Thursday, April 09, 2015

After several cancelations at the hands of Mother Nature, the 2015 season finally got underway for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team Thursday. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the opponent was a nationally-ranked team that had already played 12 games. The result was a pair of losses, 14-0 and 10-5, to #9 Onondaga Community College. The Lazers are now 8-6 overall and 5-2 in Region III.

GAME 1: Onondaga 14, TC3 0 Boxscore
The Panthers looked very much like a team playing on a field for the first time this year. In five innings, TC3 hitters struck out 10 times and failed to register a hit. Meanwhile, Onondaga scored in each inning, helped in part by eight walks issued by TC3 pitcher Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton).

GAME 2: Onondaga 10, TC3 5 Boxscore
The second game started much better, with Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) opening the game with a single and coming around to score on a double by Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamston H.S./Parish). Forehand followed with a hit and stole second with one out, but was stranded there to end the top of the first. Onondaga responded with three in the bottom of the inning, and added two more in the second to lead 5-1.

In the third, Andrews again started a rally, reaching on a hit by pitch and eventually coming around to score on a single by Forehand. In the fourth, Seychelle DeChellis (Lansing H.S./Lansing) walked and worked her way around to score, pulling the Panthers within 5-3. But in the bottom of the inning, Onondaga erupted for five runs to put the lead at 10-3. TC3 rallied with two runs in the fifth, but the game was called due to rain after TC3 was retired in the fifth, making the final 10-5.

Forehand finished game two 3-for-3 with two RBI while Andrews went 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

The Panthers hope to host Monroe Community College for the home opener Saturday at 1 p.m.
