Student-Athletes Honored for Academic Excellence

July 1, 2016

Seven Tompkins Cortland Community College student-athletes have been honored with a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Academic Student-Athlete Award. Brendan Griffiths (Niskayuna H.S./Niskayuna), Kayla Kelsey (Cortland H.S./Cortland), Victoria Mattarell (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott), Matthew Socola (Haverling H.S./Bath), Callie Stillman (Odessa-Montour H.S./Montour Falls), Antonio Triana (New Roots H.S./Cortland), and Justmil Villanueva (A. Phillip Randolph H.S./Washington Heights) were recognized for their excellence in the classroom.

Socola and Villanueva each received a Superior Academic Achievement Award, which goes to students with a GPA between 3.80 and 3.99. Socola was a member of the baseball team while Villanueva played basketball for the Panthers.

Kelsey, Griffiths, Stillman, and Triana each earned an Exemplary Academic Achievement Award, which goes to students with a GPA between 3.60 and 3.79. Kelsey was a part of the softball team, Griffiths and Stillman played soccer, and Triana was a golfer.

The seven student-athletes represent the most Tompkins Cortland has ever had honored by the NJCAA in a single academic year.

Ramapo High All-Star Signs with Panthers

June 23, 2016

Brianna Lawrence signing her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play for the Panthers

Brianna Lawrence has signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play for the Panthers. The all-star from Ramapo High will start classes at Tompkins Cortland this fall, joining Coach Dave Stevenson's program for the 2016-17 season.

"I see her as someone who can play multiple positions," said Stevenson, noting the 5-8 Lawrence can contribute at both ends of the floor. "She can get to the front of the rim and is an absolute lock-down defender, which is a very exciting combination."

"I'm looking forward to the dynamic she will bring to the team," said Stevenson.

Ithaca High All-Star Joins Panthers

June 17, 2016

Tatiana Minnick with her letter of intent to play at Tompkins Cortland

Ithaca High all-star Tatiana Minnick has joined the 2016 recruiting class for Panthers Women's Basketball. The Section IV Ithaca-Region All Star signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to join Coach Dave Stevenson's program this fall.

"Tatiana is an all-around excellent player," said Stevenson. According to Stevenson, Minnick, who led Ithaca High in assists the last two years, is a multidimensional player. "She's a great distributor, she can score the basketball, and she can play defense. She plays basketball with a high I.Q., and that translates into a quality product on the floor."

As important as her talents on the floor, Coach Stevenson says her off-court qualities make her a good fit for the Panthers. "I knew I wanted her in our program the first time I saw her play, but on top of that, she's a pleasure to be around," said Stevenson. "Tatiana is a fantastic addition to our program."

Panthers Sign All-Star Recruit

June 8, 2016

Jaida Washington with her letter of intent to play at Tompkins Cortland

The first member of the Panthers 2016 recruiting class is Jaida Washington. The Elmira High School standout signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play for Tompkins Cortland starting in the fall.

Washington was a STAC All-Star, helping the Express to the STAC championship game and the Section IV Class AA finals her senior year. A strong, 6-0 post player, she is expected to make an immediate impact for Tompkins Cortland. "Jaida is a dominant defender and rebounder," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach David Stevenson. "I can't wait to get to work with her. She has so much potential in every aspect of the game. I'm excited to see how she affects the game, both with the ball in her hands and without."

She joins a program that took a huge step forward last year, and Coach Stevenson sees her as a major part of taking the next step. "She will make us better as a team. She can be as good as she wants to be," he said. "Not only is she the type of player we want to have on our team, she is the type of person we want to have as a student here at the College."

Atkinson Earns All-Region Honors

March 31, 2016

Rickeya Atkinson, All-Region

Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball player Rickeya Atkinson (Stratford H.S./Stratford, Conn.) has been named to the NJCAA Region III all-region second team.

Atkinson had previously been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team. She was fifth in the region both in scoring, averaging 16.3 points per game, and in free-throw shooting, making 78.9%. The freshman liberal arts and sciences-general studies major was 13th in the region in assists with 3.6 per game.

She is the sixth Tompkins Cortland women’s basketball player ever named all-region and the first since Becca Holton Tomasdottir was honored after the 2012-13 season.

Cafferty and Atkinson Named All-MSAC

February 22, 2016

Panther All-MSAC

For just the third time in the 16-year history of Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball, two Panthers have been voted all-conference. Freshmen Jessica Cafferty (Whitney Point H.S./Whitney Point) and Rickeya Atkinson (Stratford H.S./Stratford, Conn.) have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference women’s basketball all-conference team. A total of ten players are chosen to the team, with voting by the coaches from the seven colleges in the conference. The last time the Panthers placed two player on the all-conference team was 2010.

Cafferty led the conference in rebounding and was fourth in scoring while averaging a double-double. In 12 MSAC games averaged 12.9 rebounds and 13.3 points per game. She was among the conference leaders with a field goal percentage of 49.2 percent and 0.7 blocks per game.

Atkinson was third in the conference in scoring, averaging 13.8 points, and was fifth in rebounding with an average of 9.0 per MSAC game. She led the conference in steals at 3.6 per game and was in the top ten in blocks at 0.6 per game.

The pair helped the Panthers to a 7-5 record in the MSAC and the #4-seed in the conference tournament.

Coaches–Women's Basketball

David Stevenson

Head Coach

Dave StevensonMSAC Coach of the Year
2010, 2013, 2014

Coach Stevenson enters his third season with the women's basketball program, following a similar track as he used during the most successful run in the history of the College's men's basketball program. In both cases, Stevenson inherited a program in need of rebuilding, and did so quickly. In 2015-16, the Panthers women's team posted the best winning percentage in over a decade, making both the conference and regional playoffs. During his decade directing the men's program, Coach Stevenson's teams established new records for wins, topping 20 victories three times, and won the Mid-State Athletic Conference championship three times (including his last two seasons). The goals for the women are similar, and the foundation is being laid.

Stevenson joined the men's basketball staff as an assistant in 2003-04, bringing a strong work ethic and knowledge of the game to the floor each night. He is well known for caring for his students both on and off the court, tracking academic progress as well as developing basketball skills. He has worked hard to bring quality players into the program, and to help those players continue their careers at the four-year level. In his time with the program, he has helped players earn scholarships to Mercy College in New York, Drake University in Iowa, and Avila University in Kansas. His former players have also shown up on the rosters at Buffalo State, Oneonta State, Oswego State, Old Westbury College, Morrisville State, Southwestern Oklahoma State, SUNY Fredonia, and Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire. A former standout athlete at Trumansburg High and a college baseball player, Coach Stevenson is Tompkins Cortland's assistant athletic director.

Jeff Riker

Assistant Coach

Jeff Riker

Coach Ricker returns for his seventh season on the bench with the women's program. A strong recruiter and teacher on the court, he has been instrumental in bringing in the program's top players and helping them reach their potential. His passion for the game extends back to when he was an IAC all-star at Dryden High. He played college ball at Onondaga Community College, appearing the Region III All-Star Game, and at SUNY Potsdam.

Coach Ricker has consistently been supportive of Tompkins Cortland's student-athletes, both on and off the court, a quality he shares with Head Coach Stevenson.
