TC3 Student-Athletes Receive National Academic Honors

July 9, 2014

Four Tompkins Cortland Community College student-athletes have been honored with a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Academic Student-Athlete Award. Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Ithaca), Kyle Shaw (Groton H.S./Groton), Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden), and Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville) were each presented with the NJCAA Award for Exemplary Academic Achievement. The award, which was previously known as the NJCAA Academic All-American award, requires a minimum grade point average of 3.6. Only three percent of the nearly 60,000 student-athletes competing in the NJCAA this year received the designation.

Policay was a member of both the women’s basketball and softball teams. She completed her sport management degree in May, graduating with a GPA of 3.76. On the softball diamond she earned all-conference honors after a stellar freshman season that saw her blast nine home runs, including a TC3-record two in one playoff game. Over two seasons at TC3, she started 58 of 59 softball games, leading the team in slugging percentage during that time. On the basketball court she started 17 of 22 games, averaging more than three points and six rebounds per contest.

Shaw golfed for TC3, qualifying for the NJCAA national tournament in both his freshman and sophomore years. He was the team’s top scorer, and completed his academic work in business administration in May, graduating with a GPA of 3.61.

A captain on the women’s soccer team, Sinnigen was a two-time all-conference selection, an NJCAA all-region choice, and an NSCAA All-American for the Panthers. A liberal arts and sciences major, she completed her coursework with a GPA of 3.71.

Wildenstein, the lone first-year student among TC3’s honorees, was also a member of the women’s soccer team. She started 11 games and has a GPA of 3.70 in business administration.

TC3 Represented by Two on All-MSAC Team

June 5, 2014

Two Tompkins Cortland Community College softball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference softball team. Sophomore Angela Everhart (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) and freshman Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) were among the 16 selected to the team. Voting was done by the coaches from the seven conference teams.

Everhart was one of TC3’s top offensive threats all season, leading the team with 25 RBI while batting .412, third best on the squad. She hit three home runs, tied for second most on the team, and had a slugging percentage of .562.

Andrews had TC3’s best on-base percentage at .562 and the second-best batting average at .475. She hit ten doubles and had a slugging percentage of .639, both the second best on the team.

It’s the eighth straight year TC3 has placed at least two players on the all-conference team.

TC3 Eliminated from Playoffs

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

TC3 softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team was eliminated from the NJCAA Region III playoffs Tuesday with an 8-3 loss to Corning Community College. The defeat in the first round of the playoffs ends TC3’s season with an overall record of 13-13. Corning, the region’s top-seed, advances to the Region III-A championship vs. Monroe Community College Friday. The championship series is hosted by TC3, and played at Cornell University.

The game opened with a scoreless first inning, but Corning took advantage of a TC3 error in the second to score two runs and take the early lead. The Panthers answered in the third, with Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) opening the frame with a great at bat, working a ten-pitch walk after falling behind 0-2. After fielder’s choice produced an out, singles by Kaitlyn Edsall (Whitney Point H.S./Whitney Point) and Karrie Snyder (Newfield H.S./Newfield) loaded the bases. A pop out produced the second out, but Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) came through with a big hit, a single that scored two runs to tie the game.

The tie didn’t last long, as the first Corning batter in the bottom of the inning homered to make it 3-2. The Red Barons added three more runs, all unearned after another Panther error, to move ahead 6-2. Both teams threatened but didn’t score in the fourth and fifth, sending the game to the sixth still 6-2.

In the sixth, Trexler again sparked a rally, ripping a double with two-outs. Sara Ford (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) delivered the run, driving in Trexler with a single to cut the deficit to 6-3. But any chance the Panthers had for a rally left when another TC3 error in the bottom of the inning allowed two more unearned runs to score, making the score 8-3. A scoreless seventh made the score hold, ending the TC3 season short of the regional final for the first time since 2008.

Ford led the offense by going 2-for-3, while Snyder and Forehand each went 2-for-4. Ford and Forehand split time on the mound, with each allowing just a single earned run.

Panthers Win Fourth Straight Regional Title
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Friday, May 11, 2012

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team won its fourth-straight NJCAA Region III title Friday, sweeping Monroe Community College 12-5 and 10-2 to take the best of three Region III-B championship series, two games to none. TC3 is now 33-3 overall and 23-1 against Region III teams. Monroe, which had won six straight Region III titles entering the series, ends its season with a record of 29-18 overall and 20-7 in region.
 
The day started on an ominous note, as the Panthers were shaky in the field to start game one. In the top of the first, Monroe took advantage of a walk and two TC3 errors to score four runs on just one hit. In the bottom of the inning, Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) led off with a single and eventually came around to score on a double by Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) to make it 4-1 after the first inning. As TC3 pitcher Emilie Rogers (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) settled in and set down Monroe in order in the second, third, and fourth innings, the Panthers' offense got into a groove in the third.
 
Kristan Baker (Dallas H.S./Dallas, Penn.) led off by reaching on an error, followed by a single by Scheer. Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) was hit by a pitch to load the bases with no outs, and a Karrie Snyder (Newfield H.S./Newfield) single brought in the first run of the inning. A Katie Huston (Chenango Valley H.S./Binghamton) groundball that was bobbled brought in another run and left the bases loaded for Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo). Houtenbrink came through in a big way, driving a pitch over the right field fence for a grand slam that gave TC3 a 7-4 lead. After an Emily Woodin (Candor H.S./Candor) single, Fravel lifted a fly ball over the center field fence for a two-run homer and a 9-4 lead. One out later, Baker came up and hit TC3's third homer of the inning, a solo shot to right to make it 10-4 after three innings.
 
TC3 added a run in the fourth on a Woodin sac fly to make it 11-4, but Monroe plated a run in the fifth to bring it to 11-5. Fravel drove in the last TC3 run in the sixth to make the final 12-5.
 
Rogers pitched the complete game, allowing just three hits while striking out 11. Fravel went 3-for-5 with three RBI, setting a new TC3 record for career hits along the way. Houtenbrink finished 2-for-4 with four RBI while Scheer, Huston, and Woodin each had two hits and one RBI.
 
In game two the Panthers were playing as the visitors, and took advantage of the first at bat. Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) started a big game with a one-out single and eventually came around to score on a pair of Monroe errors. The 1-0 lead only lasted until the bottom of the frame when Monroe plated a run to tie the score. In the second the Panthers reclaimed the lead for good, again taking advantage of Monroe errors to score two runs and lead 3-1 in the second. In the third, Woodin came through with a two-out, two-run single to make it 5-1, and after a scoreless fourth, the Panthers blew it open in the fifth.
 
Snyder opened the frame with a double and Huston followed with a walk. An out later a Woodin ground out made it 6-1 with two down. Fravel and Ducharme each delivered RBI singles, and Baker followed with her second homer of the day, this one a three-run shot that made the score 10-1. Monroe scored a run in the bottom of the frame, but Rogers ended the game with a strike out of the Tribunes cleanup hitter.
 
Rogers, the tournament MVP, picked up her second win of the day, striking out four in five innings. Ducharme went 3-for-4 with two RBI while all-tournamnt selections Baker and Woodin each had two hits and three RBI.
 
TC3 now advances to the NJCAA Division III National Championship tournament for the fourth straight year. The double-elimination tournament opens Thursday in Rochester, Minnesota. The Panthers will find out their first-round opponent when the tournament seeds are announced Monday.
