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–2006 Women's Soccer

Season Ends with Playoff Loss

Saturday, October 21, 2006

After failing to capitalize on a first half filled with scoring chances, a second-half surge by the home team sent the TC3 women's soccer team home with a first-round playoff loss Saturday. The Panthers, the #11 seed in the NJCAA Region III tournament, lost at sixth-seed Genesee Community College 4-0. TC3 ends the season 9-8-1. Genesee advances to the quarterfinals and will play at third-seed Niagara County Community College Tuesday.
 
The opening 90 minutes saw the visitors miss several scoring opportunities, having two goals called back on offsides calls and failing to cash in on breakaways. The missed chances came back to haunt the Panthers in the second half, when Genesee's Danielle Koers scored what proved to be the game-winner ten minutes after the break. The home team added to the lead in the 71st minute and iced the game with tallies in the 80th and 87th minutes.
 
The loss ends another successful season for TC3. For the second straight year the Panthers advanced to the NJCAA playoffs, setting several team and individual records along the way.

Panthers Keep Playoff Hopes Alive

Sunday, October 15, 2006

The TC3 women's soccer team kept its playoff hopes alive while guaranteeing a second-straight winning season with a 4-1 win over Jefferson Community College Sunday. With one regular season game left, TC3 is 9-6-1 overall and 8-5-1 in Region III action. The home win also leaves TC3 4-2 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference, good for a tie with Jefferson and SUNY Canton for second place in the final MSAC standings. Jefferson is now 9-7-1 overall.
 
Scoring opened in the 18th minute, with Ashley Finton taking a feed from Sherry Buxo to give the home team an early lead. Jefferson responded in the 33rd minute on a goal by Lacey Malbeuf to make it 1-1.
 
TC3 earned a penalty kick in the closing minutes of the half, but the Jefferson keeper made the save to keep the score tied. It seemed as though the play would give the visitors momentum heading into the second half, but any edge Jefferson gained from the play quickly vanished as the Panthers came out strong in the second half.
 
In the opening minutes coming out of the break Karisa Eaton drilled a hard low liner from 20 yards that got past the keeper to make it 2-1. In the 63rd minute, Katie Post made it 3-1, floating a shot from the top of the 18 past the keeper to make it 3-1.
 
The final tally came from Bethany Williamson, playing in a pretty pass from Caitlin Smith in the 72nd minute to make it 4-1.
 
TC3 closes out the regular season at Herkimer County Community College Tuesday night.

Panthers Fall at Delhi

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

For the second straight game, the TC3 women's soccer team paid the price for not cashing in on several scoring opportunities. Playing at Delhi on Wednesday, the Panthers dropped a 2-1 decision to fall to 8-6-1 overall and 7-5-1 in Region III action. With the win Delhi improves to 8-3-1 overall and in regional play.
 
Like in Saturday's loss to Niagara, TC3 fell behind early against Delhi. In the 15th minute, the home team was awarded a penalty kick, with Christina Intartaglia converting to make it 1-0. Three minutes before the half, the home team made it 2-0 on a goal by Chelsea Griep.
 
After pressuring but failing to convert most of the game, TC3 finally put on in the net. In the 70th minute, Rasmita Taylert scored off a pass from Heather Kowalczyk) to cut the deficit in half. It proved to be the final score of the game, with the home team holding on for the win.
 
TC3 hosts Jefferson Community College Sunday at noon. It is the regular season home finale for the Panthers.

Panthers Fall at Home

Saturday, October 07, 2006

Despite controlling play much of the game, the TC3 women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision to Niagara County Community College Saturday. The home loss drops TC3 to 8-5-1 while Niagara improves to 10-2.
 
The game opened with Niagara scoring an early goal. In the fifth minute, Felicia Patterson gave the visitors the lead. TC3 responded moments later, Jackie McManus fed Ashley Finton for a score to make it 1-1 in the ninth minute. The Panthers threatened the rest of the first half, dominating play but failing to capitalize.
 
The second half started with TC3 again in control of play early, but things fell apart about twenty minutes into the half. In the 67th minute, Niagara's Laura Freeman scored what proved to be the game-winner. The tally seemed to deflate the Panthers, and when Samantha Berwick scored four minutes later, the home team seemed destined to fall.
 
The loss leaves TC3 three games above .500 with three games left in the regular season. TC3 travels to SUNY Delhi Wednesday before returning to Dryden on Sunday, October 15 for the home finale.

Panthers Shutout Corning

Thursday, October 05, 2006

The victory was TC3's seventh shutout win of the year, and the fourth in the last five games. TC3 keeper Casey Ebeling earned her sixth shutout of the season with eight saves. Jackie McManus played a big role in the offense, scoring the game's first goal off assists from Ashley Lohan and Caitlin Smith to make it 1-0 in the 25th minute. In the 64th minute, McManus added an assist as Ashley Finton scored the final goal with Bethany Williamson also credited with an assist.

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

The TC3 women's soccer unbeaten streak was snapped at six games as the Panthers fell to The number four ranked team in the nation, Broome Community College, 7-1 on Tuesday. TC3 falls to 7-4-1 overall and 2-2 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference while Broome improves to 8-1 overall and 3-0 in the MSAC.

The second goal came in the 21st minute, with Nicole Mosher pounding in a goal from 20 yards out to make it 2-0. The Panthers kept Broome off the board the rest of the half, but in the 52nd minute, a corner kick by Amber Pratt found Erika Puffer for the third score. Three minutes later, Mosher scored her second goal to make it 4-0.
 
TC3's lone goal came moments later as Karisa Eaton took a direct kick from 45 yards out, beating the Broome keeper to the upper corner. It proved to be the lone highlight for the Panthers, as Broome continued to pour it on, adding three goals and pressuring for more as time expired.

Panthers Shut Out Suffolk for First Win

Sunday, September 03, 2006

A two-goal and one-assist performance from Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) provided the spark as the TC3 women's soccer team posted its first win of he season, beating Suffolk County Community College-Grant 4-0 Sunday. The game, part of the TC3 Northeast Cup, was played at Cortland state. TC3 is now 1-2 while Suffolk falls to 0-2.
 
The scoring started in the 11th minute, when TC3 won its first corner kick of the game. Hitting from the right corner, McManus bent the ball back towards the goal, and when a Suffolk defender tried to clear it, the ball ended up in the goal. Playing with a lead for the first time this year, the Panthers continued to pressure the Suffolk end for much of the half before finally putting in a second tally. With just over a minute left in the half, Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) slid a perfect crossing pass through the box to McManus for the tap in. The goal gave the Panthers a 2-0 lead heading into the half.
 
In the second half, the Panthers used a pair of goals in a four-minute span to take control. In the 55th minute, TC3 earned a direct kick from just outside the right side of the box. McManus delivered the ball on goal, and after the initial save, Ashley Finton was in the right position to put home the score. In the 59th minute, TC3 scored off a corner kick when Karisa Eaton (Cincinnatus HS/Willett) served a ball that rebounded to Christy Mott (McGraw HS/McGraw) for a goal-scoring blast from 15 yards out.
 
Casey Ebeling (Pearl River HS/Pearl River) earned the shutout in goal, recording five saves.

Panthers Drop Northeast Cup Opener

Saturday, September 02, 2006

The TC3 women's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to Oxford College of Emory University Saturday in the opening round of the TC3 Northeast Cup. The game was played at Cortland State. TC3 is now 0-2 while Oxford improves to 3-0-1.
 
Playing in a steady driving rain, the host team fell behind early. Less than three minutes into the game, Oxford earned a direct kick deep inside the TC3 end. Olivia Lezanski delivered with a drive from 20 yards out to give the visitors the early lead. Oxford threatened over the next several minutes before the Panthers finally were able to mount a challenge.
 
In the 12th minute, TC3 put its first serious threat on the goal. Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) beat the defense and put a shot on goal that the Oxford keeper stopped but couldn't control. TC3's Sasha Brush (Eldred HS/Glen Spey) hustled to get to the loose ball, but misfired on the open net, leaving the deficit at 1-0.
 
The score stayed 1-0 until the 69th minute, when Oxford's Sarah Meyers curled a corner kick into the net to make it 2-0. TC3 failed to capitalize on a pair of quality scoring chances over the final 20 minutes, once with a misfire on an open net from 20 yards and once on a tremendous save by the Oxford keeper.
 
The TC3 Northeast Cup concludes Sunday with the Panthers hosting Suffolk County Community College-Grant at 1:00 p.m.

Panthers Open Season with Loss

Saturday, August 26, 2006

The TC3 women's soccer team opened the 2006 season with a disappointing performance, falling at Genesee Community College 7-1 Saturday. It was the season opener for both teams.
 
The visiting Panthers dug a deep hole early, falling behind 5-0 in the first half. Ten minutes into the game, Genesee's Danielle Koers scored the first of her fours goals to put the home team on the board. Koers added another tally in the 25th minute, followed by a score by Amanda Smith a minute later. Stefanie Stedman made it 4-0 in the 32nd minute before Koers scored in the 38th minute to make the halftime score 5-0.
 
Coming out in the second half, TC3 mounted its best attack of the game, hitting the post three times before Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) earned a penalty kick for TC3. Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) netted the kick to make it 5-1 in the 49th minute, but any momentum from the goal quickly vanished as Smith scored less than three minutes later to push the score to 6-1. Another goal by Koers, this one in the 80th minute, made the final 7-1.
 
The loss snapped an 11-game regular-season winning streak for TC3. It also marks the second straight year TC3 opened the season with a loss. Last year TC3 lost the opener before winning three straight and 14 of the next 15.
 
TC3 is next in action for the home opener on Saturday, September 2. TC3 takes on Oxford College of Emory University (Georgia) at 3:00 on Saturday.
