TC3 Represented on All-MSAC Team
Two Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference baseball team. Sophomore Matt Jones (Greene H.S./Greene) and freshman Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) were among the 15 selected to the team. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.
Jones saw time on the mound and in right field. As a pitcher he was fourth in appearances (six) and innings pitched (26.1). He was third in strikeouts (20) and tossed the teamís lone shutout this season, a 9-0 win over Corning Community College. At the plate he was second on the team with a .337 batting average and tops with a .400 on-base percentage. His 18 RBI were second best on the team, and his five doubles were third best.
Streb, who also was named a soccer all-American in the fall, split time between the mound and shortstop. He was the teamís top hitter with a .373 batting average and a .427 slugging percentage. He stole a team-best ten bases and was by far the toughest player to strike out (three in 110 at bats). His 21 RBI led the team and his six doubles were the second best. On the mound he was second in wins (two) and ERA (4.12). He had the most strikeouts (42) in the second most innings of work (48).
Itís the seventh straight year TC3 has placed at least two players on the all-conference team.
Panthers Drop Season Finale
The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team dropped its season finale doubleheader Thursday, falling at home to Niagara County Community College by scores of 6-4 and 21-1. The season ends for the Panthers with a record of 7-25 in the West Division and 7-27 overall.
The Panthers fell behind early in both games. In each game, Niagara scored three runs in the top of the first, and in each game the Panthers put one across in the bottom of the frame. But in the opener, Niagara answered with two more in the second inning to lead 5-1. TC3 mounted a rally in the third, scoring three times on consecutive hits by Akeem Vereen (John F. Kennedy H.S./Bronx), Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk), and Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) plus an RBI groundout by Matt Jones (Greene H.S./Greene). The 5-4 score held until the fifth when Niagara scored an insurance run to make it 6-4. The Panthers threatened in the bottom of the fifth but couldnít narrow the gap.
Game two saw the first inning end with Niagara ahead 3-1 and the visitors add to the lead in each inning before ending the game after five innings and a 21-1 lead.
Streb finished the day 4-for-4 to end the year with a .373 batting average. Pfund went 2-for-6 to end the year at .303. Jones also ended the year over .300, going 1-for-4 Thursday to finish at .337.
