Panthers End Season with Nail-Biter

Thursday, October 16, 2003

One of the more exciting matches of the season brought the 2003 season to an end for the TC3 volleyball team Thursday. Hosting Niagara County Community College, TC3 dropped a 3-2 decision, losing the fifth and final game 15-13. TC3 ends the year 5-14.
 
The Panthers started slow, dropping the opener 30-18. Game two was a tense tug-a-war, with TC3 winning 31-29. A poor game three led to a TC3 loss, 30-19. With their back to the wall, TC3 played its best game of the night, winning game four 30-20. In the deciding game, TC3 fell behind 8-1 before rallying to draw to 6-9. After both teams traded several points, TC3 made a final push with Jessica Page (Afton/Afton) serving at 11-14. After a big serve from Page and a huge block by Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester), the Panthers drew to 13-14 before falling.
 
Adger led the way for the Panthers with 13 kills, 3 blocks, and 3 digs. Page added 6 kills, 6 digs, and 4 assists. Freshman Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) dished out 10 assists to go with 2 aces and 2 kills.

After a sloppy game one, TC3 dominated game two to even the match. Game three turned when the Panthers went on an 11-2 run, changing an 11-14 deficit into a commanding 22-16 lead. The final game was a hard fought battle, with TC3 opening an early 7-0 lead. A Delhi rally gave the visitors a 16-11 lead. Delhi held the lead until freshman Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton) took over serve with TC3 trailing 17-19.

Panthers Win Behind Page Serving

Monday, September 29, 2003

The first two games saw TC3 lead most of the way en route to victories, but it was the third game that featured a record setting performance from freshman Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton). Starting her service with TC3 leading 6-5, Page rattled off 21 straight service points to give the Panthers a commanding lead and set a new TC3 record for consecutive service points. Along the way she collected her 16th ace of the match, setting another TC3 record. It's the second time in less than a week Page has set a new record for consecutive service points. Last Wednesday she set established the standard with 13 straight.
 
In addition to her 16 aces, Page dished out 13 assists and ripped 5 kills. Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester) pounded out eight kills and Courtney Manderville (Union-Endicott High/Endicott) added six.

Saturday, September 27, 2003

The TC3 volleyball team earned its first home win of the season Saturday, rallying to beat Alfred State in a best of three games match. The Panthers dropped the opener 28-30 before coming from behind to take game two 30-24. The deciding game went to TC3 15-12. TC3 also played SUNY Canton on Saturday, losing in two games, 30-14 and 30-25. TC3 is now 3-9 overall. Alfred State beat SUNY Canton in the afternoon's other match.
 
After leading much of the first game against Alfred State, TC3 fell victim to a Pioneer rally. Game two was the exact opposite, with Alfred State leading by five points for most of the first part of the game. TC3 finally caught up at 21-21, taking the lead for good with a four-point burst. Game three saw the teams tied as late as 5-5 before TC3 pulled away, building the lead to five points before holding on for the win. Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton) had another big day with four aces and seven assists. TC3 never challenged Jefferson after the Cannoneers jumped out to a big lead early in game four. Natalie DeCara (Millbrook High/Clinton Corners) led the attack with 5 kills.

Tough Luck Loss for Panthers

Friday, September 26, 2003

On a night that all the breaks seemed to go against the home team, the TC3 volleyball team dropped a four game match to Jefferson Community College Friday. The Panthers lost the opener 26-30, won the second game 30-27, but dropped the final two games 26-30 and 13-30. TC3 is now 2-8 overall and Jefferson is 4-6.
 
Early on it looked to be a long night for the Panthers. After Jefferson pulled out a see-saw first game, the visitors moved out to a huge lead in game two. Trailing 14-3, the Panthers rallied to eventually tie it at 18-18, thanks in large part to freshman Jessica Page's (Afton High/Afton) new TC3 record 13 straight service points. TC3 would build the lead to seven at 25-18 before pulling out the win 30-27. TC3 took an early 6-0 lead in game three, but couldn't hold on as Jefferson came back to tie it at 9-9. The two teams stayed within a few points of each other until TC3 pulled out to a 23-18 lead. From that point on, Jefferson would outscore the home team 12-3 to take game three and much of the spirit from the Panthers. TC3 never challenged Jefferson after the Cannoneers jumped out to a big lead early in game four.
 
Page had a big night for the Panthers, recording 8 aces and 7 assists. Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester) finished with 7 kills and 4 aces. Natalie DeCara (Millbrook High/Clinton Corners) had 5 kills and Lareina DeMarco (Rome Free Academy/Lee Center) had 5 aces and 3 kills.
 
TC3 returns to the court Saturday, hosting a tri-meet with SUNY Canton and Alfred State Saturday at noon.
 
Final: Jefferson 3, TC3 1

Wednesday, September 24, 2003

The TC3 volleyball team dropped a four game match to SUNY Cobleskill Wednesday night. The Panthers lost the opener 17-30, won the second game 30-27, but dropped the final two games 26-30 and 22-30. TC3 is now 2-7 overall and Cobleskill is 4-6.
 
After playing poorly in the opening game, the Panthers regrouped and took an early lead in game two. TC3 held off several Cobleskill rallies until the visitors pulled even at 24-24. After the two teams traded points, TC3 took the lead for good, evening the match at one game each. In both games three and four, TC3 led early but couldn't hold on.
 
Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester) led TC3 with 12 kills and 5 blocks. Natalie DeCara (Millbrook High/Clinton Corners) pounded out 6 kills to go with 6 digs and 3 blocks. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) had seven digs while Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton) added 12 assists, 5 kills, and 5 aces.

Panthers Make Disappointing Trip North

Wednesday, September 17, 2003

The long trip to northern New York proved to be a disappointing one for TC3 Wednesday. Playing at SUNY Canton, the Panthers dropped a 3-0 decision, losing by the scores of 30-22, 30-17, and 30-24. TC3 is now 2-6 overall and 0-4 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference.
 
Sophomore Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester) finished with 6 kills, 4 blocks, 3 digs, and 2 aces. Classmate Lareina DeMarco (Rome Free Academy/Lee Center) had 4 digs, 3 kills, and an ace. Freshmen Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) and Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton) each had 6 assists, and Natalie DeCara (Millbrook/Clinton Corners) had 4 kills, 3 digs, 2 assists, and an ace.

Panthers Fall to Powerful Broome Team

Tuesday, September 16, 2003

The first home match of the season turned out to be a tough outing for the TC3 volleyball team. Playing against a powerful Broome Community College team, the Panthers fell in three games, 30-15, 30-26, and 30-16. TC3 is now 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome improves to 9-6 overall and 1-1 in the MSAC.
 
Broome controlled game one, thanks largely to several long stretches of strong serving. The visitors ran off several long serving streaks, including a string of seven straight points that put TC3 in a deep hole early. While the Panthers were never able to sustain any rally in game one, game two saw TC3 move out to an early five point lead. After Broome rallied to tie the game at 8-8, TC3 regrouped and took a lead the Panthers would hold until Broome tied it at 19-19. A Broome burst of five straight points made it 25-19, and proved to be the difference. Game three was another case of getting too far behind early. The Panthers gave up service streaks of eight and six points early to fall in a deep hole. Despite a late game rally, TC3 fell well short.
 
Sheena Adger (East High/Rochester) had six kills and two blocks. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) had six assists while Jessica Page (Afton High/Afton) added five assists, three kills, and two aces.
