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.

Panthers Fall in Playoffs
Box & Play-by-play

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

The TC3 softball season came to an end Tuesday with an extra-inning loss in the first round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The Panthers, the fourth seed, lost to fifth-seed Genesee Community College 5-1 in eight innings. TC3's season ends with a record of 25-13 overall and 21-8 in Region III. Genesee advances to the regional double-elimination tournament this weekend with an overall record of 23-15 and a Region III record of 21-9.
 
Tuesday's game featured a rematch of two teams who played a doubleheader on Sunday, with the Panthers winning both games. It looked in the first inning like TC3 was going to pick up with it left off on Sunday. TC3 pitcher Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby) set down the Cougars in order in the top of the inning, striking out two in the process. Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) started the Panthers half of the inning with a walk, and two outs later, moved to second on a single by Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland). Stephanie Miller (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) loaded the bases by getting hit by a pitch, but the inning ended when a hard grounder by Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge) was fielded by the third baseman, who made the final out at her bag.
 
The next two innings went by quickly as both Rieman and Genesee pitcher Laura Olcott cruised, setting down both teams in order. Genesee had its first base runner in the fourth, a two-out double, but Rieman quickly ended the threat by inducing a pop up.
 
In the bottom of the frame, Lafer started a two-out rally for the Panthers, singling to center. Katie Dennis (Edmeston H.S/Mt. Vision) pinch ran for Lafer, and came around to score on a double by Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River), giving the Panthers the lead after four innings. The advantage didn't last long, as Genesee took advantage of an inning-opening error to produce the tying run. After the lead-off hitter reached second, Genesee used a pair of sacrifice bunts to score their first run.
 
Neither team could cross the plate again in regulation, with each team leaving runners in scoring position over the last two innings. In the eighth, both teams started the frame with a runner on first. Genesee took advantage of the opportunity to spark a four-run rally. The Panthers couldn't respond in the bottom of the frame, making the final 5-1.
 
The Panthers were led by sophomores. All four hits came from second-year players, with Dovi finishing with two of TC3's four hits. Rieman had a strong game in the circle, striking out seven while allowing just three earned runs.


Panthers Sweep to Win #25
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Sunday, May 04, 2008

The TC3 softball team closed out the regular season with a doubleheader sweep of Genesee Community College Sunday, winning 2-1 and 10-2. The wins give TC3 25 on the season, the most ever by a TC3 team in any sport. The Panthers are now 25-12 overall and 21-7 in Region III. The wins helped the team receive the fourth seed in the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The Panthers will host a playoff game against fifth-seed Genesee Tuesday.
 
Sunday's games featured two teams expected to make the playoffs. TC3 pitcher Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby), fresh off her two-shutout performance on Saturday, was sharp through the first two innings. In the bottom of the third, Genesee's number nine hitter drove one of Rieman's pitches over the right fielder's head. Playing on Genesee's home field, which has no outfield fence, the ball rolled far enough for the hitter to circle the bases for a homer and an early 1-0 lead for the home team. The run seemed to spark Rieman, who dominated the rest of the way, not allowing a single base runner over the final four innings.
 
Rieman's teammates made her work stand, as the Panthers put two across in the sixth, with Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) and Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge) each driving in a run. Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) went 2-for-3 from the top of the lineup to spark the five-hit attack.
 
Game two saw Rieman again sparkle, but this time at the plate as Kelly Cameron (Oneida H.S./Oneida) took over in the circle. Cameron pitched well, allowing just four hits and one earned run while tossing the complete game. It was more than good enough, as the bats finally came alive for the Panthers.
 
Rieman led the 12-hit attack by having a monster afternoon. The sophomore went 4-for-5 with a triple, a home run, and six runs batted in. The RBI total was the most of any Panther this year and the second most ever for a TC3 player in a single game. She wasn't alone in attacking the ball. Morey, Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland), and Shannon Smithson (East Syracuse-Minoa H.S./East Syracuse) each had two hits and six different Panthers scored runs. Smithson also doubled and stole a base and Morey swiped a pair to lead TC3 to the win.

The TC3 softball team posted a doubleheader sweep of Onondaga Community College. The Panthers won both game by the score of 1-0 to improve to 23-12 overall, setting a new TC3 single-season record for wins.

Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) led the way in game one, going 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and the lone RBI. She also had the lone run batted in in game two, lifting a sacrifice fly in the first inning to score Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland), who had tripled.

Panthers Split with Jefferson

Thursday, May 01, 2008

Coming into Thursday's doubleheader, the TC3 softball team had their second straight outright Mid-State Athletic Conference title within their sights. That vision is now a bit cloudy after the Panthers split the two games with Jefferson Community College, winning game one 2-1 before losing game two 10-0. TC3 is now 21-12 overall, 17-7 in Region III, and 6-2 in the MSAC. Jefferson is now 21-11 overall, 17-7 in region, and 5-3 in conference. TC3 now needs to win two games Saturday to tie with Corning for the conference championship.
 
Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby) was the story in game one, tying a TC3 single-game record by striking out 13 hitters. The sophomore allowed just two hits and one unearned run. Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) and Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland) each went 2-for-3, with O'Rourke picking up a run batted in.
 
Game two was as different from game one as could be. Where the Panthers took the early lead in game one, the nightcap opened with Jefferson taking advantage of eight hits, an error, and some poorly played balls to score seven runs over the first two innings. Meanwhile, the Panthers managed just one base runner through the first three innings – and she was erased as part of a double play. Jefferson added two more runs in the fourth to make it 9-0. The Panthers, who struck out eight times in game two after going down n strikes just twice against the same pitcher in game one, couldn't get a run across to keep the game from ending after five innings.
 
TC3 is scheduled to close out conference play Saturday at home against Onondaga Community College before ending the regular season Sunday at Genesee Community College.

Panthers Sweep
Game 1 Box

Thursday, April 17, 2008

A no-hitter in game one and a run in the bottom of the seventh of game two gave the TC3 softball team a dramatic sweep of Finger Lakes Community College Thursday. The Panthers dominated the opener behind the pitching of Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby) while winning 9-0 before squeezing out a 3-2 win in the nightcap. TC3 is now 10-9 overall, 6-4 in Region III, and 3-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes falls to 2-6 overall and in region and 0-2 in conference.
 
Game one was never in doubt, as Rieman was shutting down the Lakers in the circle while the Panthers were scoring nearly at will. TC3 took advantage of three Finger Lakes errors in the first to score four runs and then added another four in the second. The final run came in the third as the contest was shortened to four and a half innings by the mercy rule.
 
Rieman struck out seven while walking two to complete the no-hitter, the second of her career. Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River) led the offense by going 2-for-2 with a double and two runs batted in. Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) tripled and drove in a run and Stephanie Miller (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) doubled and scored twice.
 
The second game saw TC3 again take an early lead. In the bottom of the first, Miller started a rally by reaching on a dropped third strike and then stealing second. O'Rourke followed with an RBI single, and then came around to score on a single by Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin). The lead stood at 2-0 as TC3 pitcher Kelly Cameron (Oneida H.S./Oneida) took her own no-hitter into the fourth. In the fourth, Finger Lakes finally reached with a hit and took advantage of some sloppy TC3 that included a fielder's choice that resulted in no outs and a wild pitch play to tie the game up. The score remained tied at 2-2 heading into the last inning.
 
In the bottom of the seventh, Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge) reached base on a hit and was replaced by pinch-runner Brienna Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus). Blanchard came around to score the game winner on a pinch-hit double by Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland), giving the Panthers the dramatic end to the sweep. Rieman earned the win in relief of Cameron, who allowed no earned runs in four innings.

Rieman Tosses No-Hitter
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Thursday, April 17, 2008

A no-hitter in game one and a run in the bottom of the seventh of game two gave the TC3 softball team a dramatic sweep of Finger Lakes Community College Thursday. The Panthers dominated the opener behind the pitching of Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby) while winning 9-0 before squeezing out a 3-2 win in the nightcap. TC3 is now 10-9 overall, 6-4 in Region III, and 3-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes falls to 2-6 overall and in region and 0-2 in conference.
 
Game one was never in doubt, as Rieman was shutting down the Lakers in the circle while the Panthers were scoring nearly at will. TC3 took advantage of three Finger Lakes errors in the first to score four runs and then added another four in the second. The final run came in the third as the contest was shortened to four and a half innings by the mercy rule.
 
Rieman struck out seven while walking two to complete the no-hitter, the second of her career. Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River) led the offense by going 2-for-2 with a double and two runs batted in. Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) tripled and drove in a run and Stephanie Miller (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) doubled and scored twice.
 
The second game saw TC3 again take an early lead. In the bottom of the first, Miller started a rally by reaching on a dropped third strike and then stealing second. O'Rourke followed with an RBI single, and then came around to score on a single by Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin). The lead stood at 2-0 as TC3 pitcher Kelly Cameron (Oneida H.S./Oneida) took her own no-hitter into the fourth. In the fourth, Finger Lakes finally reached with a hit and took advantage of some sloppy TC3 that included a fielder's choice that resulted in no outs and a wild pitch play to tie the game up. The score remained tied at 2-2 heading into the last inning.
 
In the bottom of the seventh, Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge) reached base on a hit and was replaced by pinch-runner Brienna Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus). Blanchard came around to score the game winner on a pinch-hit double by Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland), giving the Panthers the dramatic end to the sweep. Rieman earned the win in relief of Cameron, who allowed no earned runs in four innings.

Wild Game Gives Panthers Split
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

In a matchup of two of the top five ranked teams in the region, the TC3 softball team earned a split with Corning Community College Tuesday. The Panthers won the opener 4-0 before dropping a wild game two 16-15 in nine innings. TC3 is now 8-9 overall, 4-4 in Region III, and 1-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference.
 
The first game saw both teams trade zeros through the first four innings. In the fifth, the Panthers plated two to take the lead. A single run in the sixth and a solo homer by Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) in the seventh provided the final margin. Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby) earned the win by allowing just four hits and striking out five. O'Rourke led the offense by going 2-for-3 with a double, home run, two runs batted in, and a run scored. Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland) and Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) each finished with two hits, with Dovi pounding a triple and Iler stealing a base.
 
Where both offenses were quiet early in game one, it took no time for both teams to get going in game two. The Panthers opened the game by scoring seven runs in the top of the first, with Corning answering with three in the bottom of the first and two more in the bottom of the second. Each team scored in their next three at bats, with Corning leading 13-12 heading into the sixth. TC3 plated a single run in the sixth, and after a scoreless seventh for both teams, the game headed into extra innings.
 
In the eighth, TC3 scored twice in the top of the inning to lead 15-13. Like the opening of the game, the Red Barons answered, scoring twice in the bottom of the inning to send it into the ninth. In the ninth, TC3 failed to score, but Corning scored a run to take the game 16-15.
 
Not surprisingly, the Panthers had several standout performances at the plate. Each of the nine players scored at least once, with Dovi leading that category with three runs. Eight of the nine collected at least one hit, with Dovi going 4-for-5 with a double. Four other Panthers doubled: O'Rourke, Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge), Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River), and Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego). Lafer and Morey each had three hits and Iler went 2-for-5 with three stolen bases.

Rieman Sparkles as Panthers Sweep
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Sunday, April 13, 2008

On a cold afternoon, the TC3 softball team used a blend of strong pitching and good at bats to overpower Niagara County Community College. Both games of Sunday's doubleheader were shortened due to the mercy rule, with TC3 winning 9-0 and 9-1. TC3 is now 7-8 overall and 3-3 in Region III. Niagara falls to 1-3 overall and in regional play.
 
Game one was never in doubt, as TC3 scored six runs in the first, a single run in the second, and two more in the fourth. Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) led the way by going 3-for-3 with a double and a run batted in. Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge), and Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River) each drove in two, with Lafer's two coming on a double. Defensively, the Panthers played errorless ball behind Niki Rieman (Lake Shore H.S./Derby), helping her to a three-hit shutout. Rieman struck out seven in the five-inning game.
 
Game two started slower for the Panthers, but ended with the same result. Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) scored the game's first run in the bottom of the first, working a walk and coming around to score on a two-out double by Rieman. The second run came in the third inning as O'Rourke homered for the second straight day to give TC3 a 2-0 lead.
 
While the offense was slowly putting runs on board, Rieman was dominant on the mound. The sophomore took a no-hitter into the fifth before finally surrendering a hit and her first run of the day. The inning ended before Niagara could tie the game, as a drive into the left-center field gap was hauled in by a nice diving catch by Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin). The play left Niagara within one, but seemed to spark the Panthers.
 
In the bottom of the fifth, Rieman led off with a double and came around to score on an error on the next play. The Panthers added a second run in the inning on a ground out by Stephanie Stagg (Newark Valley H.S./Berkshire), but the inning ended before any more damage could be done. After a scoreless top of the sixth, TC3 took advantage of three Niagara errors to plate five runs in the bottom of the inning to end the game.
 
After earning the win in game one, Rieman had an even better game two. On the mound, she allowed just one hit while striking out three. At the plate, she went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs batted in, and two runs scored.

Panthers Split with Jamestown
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Saturday, April 12, 2008

A strong pitching performance by Niki Rieman (Lakeshore H.S./Derby) in game one helped the TC3 softball team to a doubleheader split with Jamestown Community College Saturday. The Panthers took game one 1-0 before falling in the nightcap 5-3. TC3 is now 5-8 overall and 1-3 in Region III play. Jamestown now stands at 5-7 overall and 2-2 in regional play.
 
Pitching was the name of the game in the opener. Rieman and Jamestown's Rebecca Zimmerman hooked up in a classic dual, with the lone run coming in the bottom of the third when Danielle O'Rourke (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) drove in Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) with the game-winner. Rieman finished the game allowing just four hits while striking our four. TC3 managed just six hits, with two coming from Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland).
 
The offenses came to life to start game two. Jamestown put two on the board in the first, but the Panthers responded with a towering home run by O'Rourke in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead in half. Jamestown added a run in the second and another in the top of the fourth to make it 4-1. In the bottom of the fourth, TC3 scored twice, powered by hits by Rieman, Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge), and Casey Ebeling (Pearl River H.S./Pearl River). The score stayed 4-3 until Jamestown added an insurance run in the top of the seventh.
 
In the last of the seventh, TC3 tried to rally. After an out, Ebeling and Kelly Cameron (Oneida H.S./Oneida) singled. A sacrifice moved the tying runs both into scoring position, but a hard grounder found a Jamestown fielder to end the game.
 
Ebeling and Lafer both went 2-for-3 with a run batted in. Cameron took the loss in the circle, allowing four earned runs while striking out four.
 
TC3 is next scheduled to play Sunday against Niagara County Community College. Games are to start at 2 p.m.

Panthers Fall to National Champs

Thursday, April 10, 2008

The long layoff for the TC3 softball team came to an end Thursday as the Panthers traveled to Rochester to take on the two-time defending national champion. After going three weeks without a game, the Panthers struggled at the plate, dropping a doubleheader to Monroe Community College 6-1 and 8-0. The Panthers, who last played during the spring break trip to Florida, falls to 4-7 overall and 0-2 in Region III. Monroe is now 13-9 overall and 2-0 in regional play.
 
The final scores show a lack of offense, but things actually started well for the Panthers. Four of the first five hitters reached base, with Samantha Lafer (Chenango Valley H.S./Chenango Bridge) driving in Ashley Morey (Owego Free Academy/Owego) to give TC3 the lead at 1-0 in the first. The advantage would only last until the bottom of the inning when Monroe tied it at 1-1. The home team took the lead in the third with a pair of runs and added three more in the fifth to make the final 6-1. TC3 finished the game with six hits, including four in the first inning.
 
The second game also started well for the Panthers, but in a much smaller dose. Morey led of the game with a hit, but it ended up being the lone TC3 hit as Monroe shut down the Panther attack the rest of the way. The Tribunes scored three in the first and never looked back, ending the game in the fifth by taking an 8-0 lead.
 
Morey, Niki Rieman (Lakeshore H.S./Derby), and Rose Dovi (Cortland H.S./Cortland) each collected two hits on the day, accounting for six of the team's seven hits. Rieman took the loss on the mound in the opener and Kelly Cameron (Oneida H.S./Oneida) was saddled with the defeat in game two.
