Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore lacrosse player Brooks Reed (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) has been named to the NJCAA Region III all-region team. The defender was selected to the first team, and was the only member of the first team not from Onondaga Community College or Genesee Community College, the two teams that played in the NJCAA national championship game. A total of 12 players were selected for first-team honors. Voting was done by the coaches from the 10 Region III teams.
Reed, who was also a two-time Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference selection, started all 11 games as a defender. He was key contributor to a defense that posted the third-best goals against average in the region (10.4). The Panthers held opponents under 10 goals six times, and under five goals four times, the most in a season in program history. Reed also scored two goals this season, giving him three for his career.
Reed is the second repeat all-region selection in the history of Tompkins Cortland lacrosse. Brett Gifford was the first two-time selection, being honored in 2011 and 2012.

Three members of the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference men’s lacrosse all-conference team. Sophomores Brooks Reed (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) and Matt Geisler (Pine Bush H.S./Pine Bush) and freshman Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) were among the twenty players chosen to the team, with voting done by the coaches in the conference.
Reed is a repeat selection, having been named all-MSAC as a freshman in 2015. During his sophomore season he started all 11 games as a defender, helping anchor the strength of the team. He also scored two goals for the Panthers.
Geisler also started all 11 games and was a key part of the defense that ranked among the best in the conference. He scored two goals and had one assist.
Wood was a versatile member of the team, spending time at midfielder and long-stick midfielder. He led the team in scoring despite missing a game, finishing the year with 21 points on 17 goals and four assists. He scored multiple goals in half his 10 games, with a season high of five goals in the game against SUNY Broome.
Three all-MSAC selections matches the most in Panthers lacrosse history. This year marks the fifth straight that Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the all-conference team. It’s also the fourth time in that span the Panthers have had multiple honorees.
The season came to a disappointing end for the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team as the Panthers lost at Herkimer College 13-9 Saturday. After winning four the last six games heading into the finale, the Panthers end the season with a record of 4-7.
The start was slow for the Panthers, as Herkimer jumped to a 6-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. Tompkins Cortland finally got on the board in the second quarter. Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) was the first to put his name in the scoring column, finding the net in the first minute of the second quarter. Peter Tortorici (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) gave the Panthers a second goal, but Herkimer also managed two goals in the second quarter, making the score 8-2 at the half.
The Panthers chipped away in the third. Jacob Durkee (Homer H.S./Homer) scored twice while Wood added another score, helping close the gap to 10-5 heading into the final quarter. Herkimer opened the quarter with a goal, pushing the lead back to half a dozen at 11-5 with 12:25 left on the clock. Tompkins Cortland made a final push, scoring four straight over the next six minutes to make it a two goal game at 11-9. But with time clicking away, Herkimer regrouped and stopped the Panther run with a pair of goals in the final minutes to make the final 13-9.
Wood finished with four goals and an assist. Durkee had two goals, and Tortorici, Chris Tavella (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) and Duran Joyce (Dryden H.S./Dryden) each had one goal. Matt Geisler (Pine Bush H.S./Pine Bush) and Vito Bonventre (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) each had an assist for the Panthers.

Coach McMullin is in his fifth season with the Panthers, and his third as head coach. He has been involved in all aspects of the program and has been largely responsible for the growth of the program, which has included playoff appearances three of the last four seasons.
Coach McMullin brings valuable experience as both a player and coach, having been a standout player both in high school and at TC3. During his time in a Panthers uniform he showed a tremendous ability to put the ball in the net, scoring 21 goals in just seven games. As a coach, he exudes the same energy he brought to the field as a player, helping the team and each player reach their potential on and off the field.
