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.

Sinnigen An All-American

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–2004 Women's Soccer

Panthers Fall at North Country

Saturday, September 18, 2004

Playing with just ten players due to injuries, the Panthers came up on the short end of a 5-1 score at North Country Community College Saturday. The Panthers are now 0-4, while North Country improves to 3-2.
 
Terra Strickland (Candor HS/Candor) scored the lone TC3 goal, heading in a pass from Kari Bonaparte (Salmon River HS/Bombay) off a direct kick in the 19th minute. The goal made the score 2-1, but North Country added another tally in the 39th minute to make it 3-1 at the half. A goal seven minutes into the second half made it 4-1, and a final score in the final minute of the game made the final 5-1.
 
Mikaela Bravo-Cullen (Dryden HS/Dryden) made 20 saves in goal for the Panthers.


Panthers Fall to Alfred State

Wednesday, September 15, 2004

Both teams scored early, with Alfred State putting one in just two minutes into the contest. TC3 answered with a breakaway goal by Terra Strickland (Candor HS/Candor) three minutes later to make it 1-1. Alfred made it 2-1 in the 20th minute and added to their lead with another tally in the 24th minute, but TC3 answered just 24 seconds later with another goal from Strickland to make it 3-2. At that point, Alfred State took advantage of a tired TC3 team and added three more goals before the half to make it 6-2. Despite another goal by Strickland just 36 seconds into the second half to make it 6-3, TC3 could never get back into the game. Alfred State scored all five of their second half goals in a 15-minute span in the middle of the half to make the final 11-3.
