Three Named All-Region

May 24, 2017

Three Tompkins Cortland Community College players have earned spots on the NJCAA Region III all-region team, the most ever in the history of the program. In voting by the coaches in the region, Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick), Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains), and Jonny Phillips (Cortland H.S./Cortland) were each voted to the second team.

Daigle and Polanco were also voted to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team after tying for the team lead in scoring, each finishing with 51 points.

Phillips, a freshman defender, anchored a defense that was among the stiffest in the region. He and Daigle were also voted to the Region III Championships all-tournament team.

The Panthers have now had representation on the Region III all-region team in four consecutive years and five of the last six years. In each of those years, the national champion has come from Region III.

Panthers Fall in NJCAA Playoffs

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

One of the most successful seasons in program history ended Saturday as the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team lost in the NJCAA Region III - District A championship game. Playing at the top-ranked Onondaga Community College, the Panthers lost 33-5 to end the season with a record of 7-6.

The Panthers expected a huge challenge playing Onondaga, and the Lazers delivered on expectations. Onondaga scored seven goals in the first six minutes of play to set the tone early. Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) finally broke through for Tompkins Cortland, scoring off an assist from Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) to get the Panthers on the board with 5:39 left in the first quarter. Onondaga scored four more times in the first, and then twice more to open the second quarter to take a 13-1 lead. With 12:37 left in the second, Matt Bisono (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) broke the run with a goal off an assist from Duran Joyce (Dryden H.S./Dryden), but Onondaga scored eight more to close out the half with a 21-2 lead.

The scoring slowed down in the second half, with Onondaga out-scoring the Panthers 12-3. Daigle scored two goals with Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) scoring the other. Padraic Iannello (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Joyce each had an assist in the second half.

Willie Wilson (Geneva H.S./Geneva) spent most of the game in goal, recording 24 saves. Ryan Moore (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) had two saves while playing most of the fourth quarter.

Two Panthers were named to the Region III All-Tournament team: Daigle and Jonny Phillips (Cortland H.S./Cortland).
