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.

December 17, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer player Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden) has been named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Women’s Division III All-America team. Sinnigen was named to the second team as a defender. Just six defenders were among the 24 players honored as All-Americans.

Sinnigen, who also was named an all-star by the NJCAA Region III and the Mid-State Athletic Conference, started all 16 games for the Panthers and was widely considered the best defender in the region. She anchored a TC3 team that posted eight shutouts and was sixth on the team in scoring with 10 points on four goals and two assists.

A two-year captain, Sinnigen is a liberal arts and sciences-teacher education major.

Sinnigen and Kendall Named All Region

November 15, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomores Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Mercedes Kendall (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region women’s soccer team. Sinnigen was voted to the first team as a defender and Kendall made second team at midfield. A total of 26 players were honored between first and second teams in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation.

Sinnigen led a TC3 defense that allowed posted eight shutouts in 16 games. She was a two-year team captain and started all 16 games this season. She scored four goals and had two assists, finishing sixth on the team in scoring despite playing most of her time in the defensive end.

Kendall split time between midfield and defense and was fourth on the team in scoring with six goals and five assists. She had a pair of strings of three straight games with at least one point, helping TC3 to a 4-1-1 mark in those games.

TC3 finished the year with a record of 10-5-1. The Panthers advanced to the playoffs for the ninth-straight year, advancing to the semifinal round.

This also marks the ninth-straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-region team, and the eighth time during that span with multiple selections.

Highlights–2003 Women's Soccer

Panthers End Season with Win at Delhi
Valentino Sets Scoring Records

Wednesday, October 15, 2003

A first half hat-trick by Ithaca High grad Marie Valentino proved to be more than enough as the TC3 women’s soccer team ended the season with a 6-0 win at SUNY Delhi Wednesday. The three-goal performance, her fifth such game this season, gives Valentino 19 goals and 45 points for the season. Valentino now holds both the single season goals and points records. The freshman liberal arts-humanities major also now holds the TC3 career record for goals scored. TC3 ends the season with a record of 5-10. Delhi falls to 4-11.
 
The Panthers won behind what coach Nicole Thomas called the best performance of the season. The scoring started early, with Valentino finding the back of the net in the tenth minute off an assist from Jennifer Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown High/Parish). The two combined again four minutes later to make it 2-0 before Valentino completed her hat-trick on an unassisted goal in the 33rd minute. The third goal pushed Valentino past Laura Thomas on the single season. Thomas set the standard with 18 goals last year. The six-point performance also moved Valentino past Thomas for the season points record (40) and past Nicole Cambridge for the career record (43) she set over the 2000 and 2002 seasons.
 
The Panthers added three more goals in the second half – all scored by freshmen. Heather Amadova (Stanford High/Stanford) scored the first and last goals of the half, sandwiching a tally by Hudson. Classmate Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) earned her first shutout by making 14 saves.
 
The win gives TC3 victories in three of the final five games. In those games the Panthers outscored the opposition 21-2.


Panthers Fall to Div-I Genesee

Sunday, October 12, 2003

The TC3 women’s soccer team dropped a 4-1 decision at Division I Genesee Community College Sunday. The loss leaves TC3 4-10 overall.
 
The hosts opened the scoring with a goal by Heather Youmans. Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) answered for TC3, making it 1-1. Unfortunately for the Panthers, that would be the last goal the team scored as Genesee’s Kristen Kwiatek scored a pair of goals before halftime and a third in the second half to make the final 4-1.
 
Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) had a solid game in goal with eight saves. TC3 plays the season finale Wednesday at SUNY Delhi.


Panthers Blast Niagara

Saturday, October 11, 2003

The TC3 women’s soccer team posted its most lopsided win in several years Saturday, beating Niagara County Community College 9-1. TC3 improved to 4-9 with the win.
 
The Panthers won behind a balanced offense that featured five different goal-scorers. Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) had another outstanding day, scoring the first two goals of the game and finishing with three goals and an assist. It was the fourth time this year Valentino has finished with seven points in a single game. Ashley Frunzi (Fallsburg High/South Fallsburg) had her finest day of the year, scoring two goals and assisting on two others. Jen Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown High/Parish) scored a pair and assisted on two others and Charity Williams (South Seneca High/Ovid) chipped in with two assists. Jeannie Mowry (McGraw High/McGraw) and Breanne Herne (Salmon River High/Akwesasne) each added a goal to round out the scoring. Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) made nine saves in goal.
 
TC3 plays at Genesee Community College Sunday.


Panthers Fall at Broome

Tuesday, October 07, 2003

The Panthers lost at Broome Community College 10-0 Tuesday. TC3 is now 3-9 overall and 1-5 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference.
 
TC3 was behind almost from the opening whistle. Broome scored just 50 seconds into the contest to make it 1-0. The hosts added a second tally in the 16th minute and made it 3-0 at the half with a goal in the 43rd minute. In the second half, Broome would score four goals over an eight-minute span to put the game away. For the game, seven different Broome players scored goals. TC3 goalie Lorretta Taylor (Canastota/Canastota) was kept busy, making 35 saves as Broome outshot the Panthers 45-4.
 
TC3 continues its season-ending road trip at Niagara County Community College on Saturday and Genesee Community College Sunday. The final game of the season is October 15 at SUNY Delhi.


Panthers Improve to 3-9 with Win

Saturday, October 04, 2003

The Panthers posted a convicning 6-1 win at Jamestown Community College on Saturday. The win moves TC3 to 3-8 on the season.
 
Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) led the way for the Panthers, notching her third hat-trick of the season. Valentino has three goals in each TC3 win. Jennifer Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown/Parish) added two goals while Krystyna Gonzalez (Stamford/Stamford) netted her first goal of the year.
 
TC3 plays at Broome Community College Tuesday.


Panthers Show Tremendous Heart in Loss

Tuesday, September 30, 2003

Despite playing most of the game two players short due to injury, the TC3 women's soccer team almost staged an improbable rally. Down 6-1 midway through the second half to SUNY Morrisville, TC3 scored three straight to make it 6-4 with over 12 minutes left. The rally would stall at that point, as TC3 dropped the final home game of the season to the Mustangs, 6-4. TC3 falls to 2-8 while Morrisville improved to 8-4-1.
 
The Panthers started the scoring on a brisk fall afternoon. Jennifer Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown/Parish) took a perfect crossing pass from Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) and scored just three minutes into play. Morrisville would answer in the 11th minute, with Megan Lyndaker scoring the first of her four goals to tie the score. Morrisville took their first lead in the 20th minute before adding three more to make it 5-1 at the half.
 
TC3, which started the game with just ten players, would play most of the second half with just nine when another player aggravated an injury. Despite playing two players down against Morrisville top players, TC3 put on an impressive display of courage and heart. After Morrisville made it 6-1 with a goal in the 65th minute, TC3 started to rally. The combination of Valentino to Hudson worked again in the 67th minute, with Hudson scoring to make it 6-2. Four minutes later, a Morrisville foul in the box led to a penalty kick for TC3. Valentino calmly put the ball past the keeper, making it 6-3. In the 78th minute, Valentino would score again, converting a pass from Breanne Herne (Salmon River/Akwesasne) to make it 6-4. TC3 would threaten over the final dozen minutes, but could pull no closer.
 
The Panthers travel to Jamestown Community College Saturday at 1 PM.
 
Final: Morrisville 6, TC3 4
Halftime: Morrisville 5, TC3 1
Attendance: 45


Bad Bounces Send TC3 to Defeat

Sunday, September 28, 2003

A few bad bounces were all that separated the TC3 women's soccer from SUNY Canton Sunday, but those bounces helped Canton beat TC3 3-0 in Mid-State Athletic Conference action. The Panthers are now 2-7 overall and 1-4 in the MSAC. Canton is 5-4-1 overall and 2-1 in the MSAC.
 
The first half was tightly contested, with TC3 having the best scoring chances of the first 35 minutes. Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) continued her strong play, giving Canton a scare twice in the opening 30 minutes. In the 23rd minute, Valentino moved the ball into scoring position under 10 yards from the goal before hitting it too strong. Canton dodged another bullet seven minutes later as a blast from Valentino deflected off the post. The visitors capitalized on TC3's missed opportunities, finally breaking the 0-0 deadlock in the 35th minute when Alison Chatland scored off a pass from Brooke Enslow. It looked like TC3 would tie it just two minutes later, but again the goal proved unkind to Valentino as her direct kick from 25 yards bounced off the crossbar after Canton keeper Kelli Rocker made a leaping save.
 
The second half saw the two team play scoreless until the 84th minute when Enslow made it 2-0. An Enslow goal in the final minute made the final 3-0.
 :
TC3 keeper Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) had another busy afternoon, making several aggressive plays among her 15 saves. The Panthers host SUNY Morrisville Tuesday at 4 PM. It is the last home game of the season for the TC3 women.
 
Final: Canton 3, TC3 0
Halftime: Canton 1, TC3 0
Attendance: 65


Panthers Fall at MVCC

Saturday, September 27, 2003

The TC3 women's soccer lost to Mohawk Valley Community College 11-0 Saturday. The Panthers are now 2-6 while Mohawk Valley, ranked #5 in the NJCAA Region III, improves to 8-2. It was the third time this year MVCC beat an opponent by more than 10 goals.
 
The scoring started early, with Mohawk Valley's Kristin Farrell scoring just 90 seconds into the contest. The goal, one of five on the day for Farrell, triggered an eight goal first half explosion that put the game away.
 
TC3 keeper Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) had a busy game, recording 38 saves on the day. The Panthers host SUNY Canton Sunday at Noon.


Valentino Powers TC3 to Win

Tuesday, September 23, 2003

Another big afternoon for Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) helped TC3 beat Finger Lakes Community College Tuesday. With Valentino playing a role in four goals, TC3 beat FLCC 5-1. TC3 is now 2-5 while FLCC falls to 0-5.
 
Despite starting the game with just 10 players (due to injuries), TC3 took a commanding lead in the first half. Jennifer Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown/Parish) scored the first goal off an assist from Valentino in the 14th minute. The two would combine again, with Valentino putting the ball in the net off a pass from Hudson, in the 26th minute to make it 2-0. Heather Amadova (Stamford/Stamford) made it 3-0, tracking down a long pass from Breanne Herne (Salmon River High/Akwesasne) and scoring in the 28th minute. Valentino made it 4-0 at the half by scoring on a direct kick from 25 yards out in the 42nd minute. Valentino and Amadova teamed up for the final TC3 goal in the 54th minute, with Valentino scoring to complete her hat-trick. Finger Lakes avoided the shutout in the 72nd minute when Sarah McWilliams took a pass behind the defense and beat keeper Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota).
 
The TC3 defense played a solid game, led by Ana Belknap (Cincinnatus/Cincinnatus), forcing Taylor to make just seven saves. The Panthers play at national-power Mohawk Valley Community College Saturday before returning home to play SUNY Canton Sunday at 1 PM.
 
Final: TC3 5, Finger Lakes 1
Halftime: TC3 4, Finger Lakes 0
Attendance: 50


Panthers Fall to #4 Clinton

Sunday, September 21, 2003

TC3 lost to Clinton Community College 5-0 Sunday. The Panthers are now 1-5 while Clinton, ranked #4 in the NJCAA Region III, improves to 8-0.
 
Clinton, which had been averaging nearly six goals a game this season, started the scoring in the 10th minute when Krista Jubert scored the first of her four goals. Jubert added a goal off an assist by Amanda Riggs in the 34th minute and completed her first half hat-trick a minute later. TC3 held Clinton scoreless until the 67th minute, when Jubert turned a pass from Debbie Danis into her fourth tally. Elyse Lafountaine scored in the 74th minute to make the final 5-0.
 
TC3's Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) continued her strong play with exceptional play all over the field, while keeper Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota) had a busy game with 19 saves.

Panthers Win 5-2 Behind Valentino Hat-Trick

Saturday, September 20, 2003

TC3 earned its first win of the season Saturday, knocking off North Country Community College 5-2. TC3 is now 1-4 while North Country falls to 1-6.
 
TC3 started the scoring early. Just 87 seconds into the contest, TC3's Marie Valentino (Ithaca High/Ithaca) launched a perfect corner kick to Breanne Herne (Salmon River High/Akwesasne), who headed the ball by the keeper for an early 1-0 lead. Eight minutes later, North Country tied the score when Ashlee Baldwin put a rebound past TC3 keeper Lorretta Taylor (Canastota High/Canastota). The game was tied until the 25th minute, when North Country's Baldwin again found the net, giving the visitors a 2-1 advantage. The lead proved to be short-lived, as TC3's Valentino scored on a breakaway less than three minutes later to tie the score. Valentino nearly gave the lead with six minutes left in the half when she unloaded a blast from 20 yards out that went over the keeper but hit the crossbar and bounced straight down, allowing the defense to recover.
 
The two teams traded scoring opportunities to start the second half before TC3's Jennifer Hudson (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown/Parish) got behind the defense and beat the keeper to score what proved to be the game-winner in the 62nd minute. Valentino worked hard to score her second goal of the game in the 78th minute, stealing the ball and beating another defender before putting it past the keeper. She completed her hat-trick with 1:27 left in the game, taking a pretty pass from Heather Amadova (Stamford High/Stamford) and making the final 5-2.
 
TC'3 Taylor recorded 14 saves in the win. The Panthers play host to Clinton Community College Sunday at Noon.
