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.

Wild Day Ends with Two Wins for Panthers

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Sunday was a day like no other for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team, as the Panthers swept Mohawk Valley Community College in wild fashion, coming from way behind in both games. The wins, by final scores of 16-15 and 18-10, improve TC3 to 6-6 overall and 4-4 in Region III play. Mohawk Valley is now 4-9 overall and 4-6 in region.

The day started quietly enough, with a scoreless first inning for both teams in game one. After that, the day was anything but quiet. Mohawk Valley put three on the board in the top of the second inning, but TC3 answered with four runs in the bottom of the third, with Sara Ford (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) starting it off with a solo home run. Mohawk Valley regained the lead with six runs in the top of the fourth, but TC3 erased the five-run deficit with six in the bottom of the frame to lead 10-9 heading into the fifth. In the fifth, the Hawks scored five runs, and when the Panthers plated two in the bottom of the frame, the Mohawk Valley lead stood at 14-12 heading into the sixth. After a rare scoreless inning, Mohawk Valley plated a run in the seventh to lead 15-12 with the Panthers coming up for the last time. In the bottom of the frame, TC3 rallied with four runs, with Kaley O’Brien (Niskayuna H.S./Niskayuna) delivering the game-winning RBI.

The Panthers collected 23 hits, tied for the third most in a game ever for a TC3 team. Ford and Angela Everhart (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) each went 4-for-5 and O’Brien and Casey Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) each went 3-for-4. Karrie Snyder (Newfield H.S./Newfield), Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca), Macey Morse (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius), and Kaitlyn Edsall (Whitney Point H.S./Whitney Point) each had two hits, with Snyder, Andrews, and Morse counting a double among their hits. Ford added a double to her home run, helping to drive in three runs. She also earned the win on the mound, going all seven innings.

Game two was a hard one to believe, even for those that watched it live. Mohawk Valley opened the game by scoring 10 in the first inning, as Ford was knocked out of the game after allowing six runs and recording just one out. Elizabeth Lawrence (Moravia H.S./Moravia) came on in relief, eventually recording the final outs of a long half inning. In the bottom of the frame, the Panthers started to chip away, scoring three runs with the big hit coming in the form of a two-out, two-run double by Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Ithaca).

Lawrence set the Hawks down in order in the second, and seemed to settle in. The Panthers didn’t score in the second, but Lawrence again held the Hawks off the board in third, and in the bottom of the frame the home team rewarded her with a huge offensive outburst. Morey led off with a single, setting the stage for an eight-run inning that was highlighted by a grand slam from Policay, and RBI double from O’Brien, and a two-run double from Andrews that gave the Panthers the 11-10 lead.

In the top of the fourth, the Panthers started to flash the leather. With a runner on first and no outs, a Mohawk Valley batter lifted a blooper ball that looked to fall in between the infield and outfield, but Snyder, playing shortstop, made a fantastic play, diving away from the infield to snag the ball. She then whirled, and from her knees, rifled the ball to first to double off the runner that hadn’t made it back to the base yet. The inning ended with Policay making a great catch of a foul pop up, preserving the lead for the Lawrence and the Panthers.

In the bottom of the fourth, Policay added to the lead, lifted a high fly ball that cleared the left-center fence for her second home run and seventh RBI of the game. Later in the inning Snyder had a two-out, two-run single to make the score 14-10. Another 1-2-3 top of the inning that included two more great caches – this time from Everhart in left field and Andrews behind the plate – coupled with two more runs for the Panthers in the bottom of the frame made the score 16-10 after five. Everhart made two more great catches in left and Andrews threw out a would-be base stealer to keep the Hawks off the board in the sixth, setting the stage to end the game in the bottom of the inning. RBI singles from Andrews and Morse pushed the score to 18-10, ending the game due to the mercy rule.

Policay and Morse each ended the game with four hits, with Policay blasting two double and two homers and driving in seven. Andrews had three hits and four RBI, and Morey was 3-for-3 with a pair of walks. Lawrence earned the win, allowing only two hits and no runs over the final five innings.

TC3 heads back on the road Monday, playing at Corning Community College.
