Saturday, September 20, 2014

TC3 volleyball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College volleyball team came up just short twice on Saturday, ultimately going 0-3 on the day against Mohawk Valley Community College, Herkimer College, and Fulton-Montgomery Community College. The home losses drop TC3’s record to 1-9 overall and 0-7 in Region III contests.

In the opener against Mohawk Valley, TC3 won the first two sets, 25-23 and 26-24, but couldn’t put the match away. The visiting Hawks rallied to win the final three sets, 25-19, 25-16, and 15-8. Shay Washington (Newfield H.S./Ithaca) and Jess Meyer (New Roots H.S./Dryden) each had seven kills with Meyer also pulling out nine digs. Brooke Torrey (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had 18 assists.

The second match saw the Panthers drop the opening set, 25-20, before taking the next two, 27-25 and 25-18. But like the first match, TC3 was unable to finish the job, losing the fourth set 25-12 and then dropping the fifth 15-13. Kasey Price (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) led the attack with ten kills and five blocks, while Elisabeth Olcott (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) had eight kills. Valerie Sjoblom (Waverly H.S./Waverly) had a team-best ten assists.

The day’s final match came against a strong Fulton-Montgomery team. The Panthers fell in straight sets, 25-8, 25-17, and 25-12, with Price recording five kills and Torrey handing out five assists.

TC3 returns to the court Wednesday at home against Onondaga Community College. The match starts at 6 p.m.

Panthers End Season in Sub-Regionals

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

The TC3 volleyball season came to a close Tuesday with a sub-regional loss at Monroe Community College. The Panthers, the tenth seed in the NJCAA Region III tournament, lost by a score of three games to one to the seventh seeded Monroe Tribunes. TC3 ends the year with a record of 11-16 overall.
 
Tuesday's match was the third time this season TC3 and Monroe faced off, with the previous two times being decisive wins for Monroe. This time around the Panthers made things interesting, coming just short in the opening game (26-30) before winning game two (30-26). Unfortunately for TC3, the home team reclaimed control in games three (16-30) and four (22-30) to close out the match.
 
Kali Hemly (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) led a quartet of strong attackers with 10 kills. Lindsey McCutcheon (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Brianne Butters (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) each had nine kills and Katelyn Anderson (Cortland H.S./Virgil) added eight. Butters also handed out 25 assists and Kristina Bement (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) and Jaymi Kelley (Moravia H.S./Moravia) each tallied four aces.

Panthers Fall in Five

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

An up and down match for the TC3 volleyball team ended on a down note Wednesday as the Panthers fell to SUNY Cobleskill 3-2. The loss drops TC3 to 10-12 overall and 8-12 in Region III. Cobleskill is now 16-6 overall and 13-6 in regional play.
 
Things started slowly for the Panthers, as Cobleskill cruised to a 30-19 win in the opening game. The visitors kept up the attack by jumping out to a big lead in game two before TC3 responded. Trailing 15-10, TC3 rallied to tie it at 20-20. The two teams traded the lead until TC3 moved ahead at 27-26. The Panthers scored the final three points to take game two, punctuated by a Lindsey McCutcheon (Dryden H.S./Dryden) kill at game point.
 
Any momentum gained by the TC3 rally to close out game two was quickly dampened to open game three. Cobleskill scored seven of the first nine points to start the game, eventually growing the lead to 16-9. TC3 answered with an impressive 9-2 rally, including six straight service points from Kali Hemly (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca), to tie the game at 18-18. The teams remained close until Cobleskill closed the game with a 4-0 run to win 30-25.
 
Unlike the first three games, game four saw one team lead the majority of the way. A 5-0 run gave TC3 a 17-10 lead, and the lead never dipped below five the rest of the way as TC3 posted a 30-20 win to set up a tiebreaker.
 
Unfortunately for the home team, game five was the complete opposite of game four. Cobleskill scored eight of the first ten points to lead 8-2 at the changeover. From that point on, the visitors cruised to a 15-8 win. Hemly and McCutcheon led the attack with 19 and 15 kills, respectively. Brianne Butters (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) dished out 28 assists.
 
TC3 closes out the regular season at the Corning Red Baron Invitational Saturday.


Panthers Fall in MSAC Semifinal

Saturday, October 20, 2007

The TC3 volleyball team fell in the semifinal of the Mid-State Athletic Conference Saturday, losing to second-seed Jefferson Community College 3-1. The Panthers, the third seed, fall to 10-11 overall and 8-11 in Region III. Regular season champion Corning Community College won the conference tournament, beating Jefferson in the final.
 
Things started well for the host school as TC3 led most of the way while winning the opener 30-22. The second game saw TC3 hold an early lead before Jefferson took control. A 6-0 run gave Jefferson a 16-10 lead, and the Cannoneers never looked back, taking game two 30-19.
 
The pivotal game three was classic. TC3 scored first, but Jefferson held the lead early, moving ahead by five at 10-5. The lead remained at five at 13-8 before TC3 rallied. The Panthers scored five straight, including four on strong serves by Jaymi Kelley (Moravia H.S./Moravia) to pull even. The two teams traded single points until the score was 16-16. Jefferson scored the next two to take the lead. It would prove to be the last lead change, but not before TC3 gave Jefferson a challenge.
 
TC3 pulled within one at 19-18 before Jefferson scored four straight to cushion the lead at 23-18. The lead grew to six at 26-20, and stayed at six at 28-20 before TC3 put together one final rally. After breaking Jefferson's serve, Kali Hemly (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) ripped off fours service point, including a pair of aces, to make it 28-27. Unfortunately for TC3, Jefferson stiffened and scored the final two points for the win.
 
Needing a win to force a tie-breaker, TC3 came up short. Game four went to Jefferson, advancing the Cannoneers to the final and ending TC3's run in the MSAC playoffs.

Panthers Clinch Conference Playoff Bid

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

The TC3 volleyball team secured a place in the Mid-State Athletic Conference playoffs with a 3-1 win over Onondaga Community College Wednesday. The win improves TC3 to 5-6 overall and 2-2 in the MSAC. The Panthers have clinched no worse than a third place finish in the conference, with the top four teams making the conference playoffs. Onondaga falls to 5-13 overall and 0-4 in the MSAC.
 
The opening moments of play did not foretell the final outcome as Onondaga jumped out to a 13-5 lead. The Panthers responded with an 11-5 run to pull within two before Jenna Dunkelberger (Dundee HS/Dundee) ripped off five straight service points to give TC3 its first lead at 21-18. The lead continued to great until Kali Hemly (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) finished the game at 30-22 with a big kill from the back row.
 
Game two saw the Panthers take control earlier, rolling to a 20-10 lead before Onondaga rallied. A 12-7 run for the visitors made it 27-22, but another big kill from Hemly followed by two aces from Katelyn Anderson (Cortland HS/Virgil) ended the game at 30-22.
 
After an early tie, the visitors led most of game three. An Anderson kill sparked a TC3 rally that closed what had been a 27-21 Onondaga lead to a 28-28 tie, but Onondaga responded to take the game 30-28.
 
Game four saw the Panthers score first for the first time of the match. With Anderson serving, TC3 pushed out to a 6-2 lead. Onondaga responded to pull within 7-6, but a block by Jaymi Kelley (Moravia HS/Moravia) followed by a big kill by Lindsey McCutcheon (Dryden HS/Dryden) helped the Panthers regain control. The lead stayed at least two points the rest of the way, with McCutcheon recording several kills along the way. A string of nine service points from Brianne Butters (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) sealed the game en route to the 30-16 final.

Panthers Rally for MSAC Win

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

The TC3 volleyball team opened the Mid-State Athletic Conference portion of the 2007 season with a big win over Broome Community College Tuesday. Playing at home, the Panthers rallied for a 3-2 win to improve to 2-2 overall.
 
The match opened with TC3 overcoming an early deficit in game one. Down 4-1 early, the Panthers responded by taking 11 of the next 14 points to move ahead 12-7. From that point on, the lead grew to ten at 22-12, highlighted by a string of six-straight service points from Kristina Bement (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira), before capping at 12 points at the end.
 
Game two saw the two teams mostly trading points through 14-14 before Broome stared to pull away. The visitors took five of the next six points and never looked back, cruising to a 30-20 win.
 
The action started to heat up in game three, with several long rallies along the way. TC3 never led, but after falling behind by five at 21-16, the Panthers fought back to within one at 26-25. A net violation and a Broome kill on successive points gave the visitors some breathing room en route to the win.
 
The intensity only grew in game four, as the two teams stayed within three points of each other the entire game until a late push by the Panthers. With Broome leading 3-12, Katelyn Anderson (Cortland HS/Virgil) hammered home a pair of kills to tie the game up. Kali Hemly (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) followed with one of the biggest hits of the night to give TC3 the lead. After a Broome timeout, Hemly came through with another kill followed by a Broome error to give TC3 a 26-23 lead. The lead grew to 30-24 by the end of the game, setting up a decisive game five.
 
After the excitement of games three and four, game five started slow, but ultimately didn’t disappoint. Broome opened by scoring the first five points before TC3 got on the board. The Panthers got back into the game by scoring five of the next six to pull within one at 6-5. After Broome scored the next two points to lead 8-5, the teams switched sides. A long delay as the officials verified the lineups seemed to help the Panthers as the home team scored four of the next five points to pull even at 9-9. A block by Alexis Tucker (Moravia HS/Moravia) gave TC3 its first lead of the game at 10-9. Errors by both teams made it 11-10 before another Anderson block gave TC3 a two-point lead at 12-10. A TC3 violation and an ace by Broome tied the score at 12-12, but a service error gave the Panthers the serve and a 13-12 lead. With Bement serving, another kill from Hemly made it 14-12. A kill error brought the score to 14-12, but Anderson ended the game with a kill.
 
Hemly led the attack with 22 kills. Brianne Butters (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) handed out 41 assists and Jenna Dunkelberger (Dundee HS/Dundee) pulled out 39 digs.
