TC3 Represented by Two on All-MSAC Team

June 5, 2014

Two Tompkins Cortland Community College softball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference softball team. Sophomore Angela Everhart (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) and freshman Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) were among the 16 selected to the team. Voting was done by the coaches from the seven conference teams.

Everhart was one of TC3’s top offensive threats all season, leading the team with 25 RBI while batting .412, third best on the squad. She hit three home runs, tied for second most on the team, and had a slugging percentage of .562.

Andrews had TC3’s best on-base percentage at .562 and the second-best batting average at .475. She hit ten doubles and had a slugging percentage of .639, both the second best on the team.

It’s the eighth straight year TC3 has placed at least two players on the all-conference team.

Panthers Finish Third in Nation
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Friday, May 20, 2011

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team finished third in the nation at the NJCAA Division III National Championship tournament in Rochester, Minnesota. After winning the first two games on Thursday, the Panthers dropped two on Friday to see the season come to a close. The Panthers lost to eventual champion Gloucester County College (N.J.) 9-7 in the winners' bracket game before losing to College of DuPage (Ill.) 3-1 in the elimination game. TC3 ends the year with a record of 34-8. It's the third straight year the Panthers have won at least 34 games and finished in the top four in the nation.
 
The Gloucester game was a wild one from the start. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) drove in Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Baldwinsville) in the top of the first to put TC3 up 1-0, but Gloucester came back with force in the bottom of the inning. The Roadrunners scored five runs before TC3 could record the first out to lead 5-1. After a scoreless second, TC3 got two runs back in the third, but Gloucester answered with a single run to lead 6-3 after three innings. TC3 scored a run in the fourth to pull with 6-4, and after keeping Gloucester off the board in the bottom of the inning, Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) came through with another big hit in the fifth. Houtenbrink blasted a three-run homer, bringing TC3 all the way back and putting the Panthers up 7-6. The score remained the same until the bottom of the sixth, when a two-out, three-run homer put Gloucester up 9-7. TC3 couldn't respond in the seventh, making 9-7 the final.
 
Ducharme had another good game both with the glove and with the bat, going 2-for-4 at the plate. Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) also went 2-for-4 as part of TC3's 10-hit attack. Sherlock took the loss in the circle to drop her season record to 11-5.
 
In the elimination game, DuPage scored in the top of the first to put TC3 in a hole again. The score remained 1-0 until the bottom of the fourth, when Ducharme and Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) hit back-to-back doubles to tie the game. DuPage broke the tie with a run in the six and another in the seventh to make it 3-1. TC3 put two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn’t change the final score.
 
Sophomore Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) was one of five players to record a hit, singling in her final game as a Panther. Snyder pitched the complete game, striking out five while falling to 19-2 on the season. She ended the season with a total of 175 strike outs, the second most in TC3 history and just eight less than the standard set by Alice Karpel in 2005.
 
Houtenbrink and Snyder earned all-tournament honors for TC3.

Sophomore Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) was one of five players to record a hit, singling in her final game as a Panther. Snyder pitched the complete game, striking out five while falling to 19-2 on the season. She ended the season with a total of 175 strike outs, the second most in TC3 history and just eight less than the standard set by Alice Karpel in 2005.

Game 2 Box

Friday, May 13, 2011

For the third straight year, the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team is a regional champion. The Panthers went to the NJCAA Region III-A championship series in Corning Friday as the favorite and didn't disappoint, sweeping Hudson Valley Community College, 6-1 and 13-2, to take the best-of-three championship series two games to none. With the regional title, the Panthers advance to the NJCAA National Championship tournament in Rochester, Minnesota. TC3 will open play in the eight-team, double-elimination tournament Thursday against Region 13-A champion Ridgewater College (Minn.). Ridgewater, from Willmar, Minnesota, has a record of 30-14 and was ranked #2 in the nation in the final NJCAA regular season poll.
 
In Friday's regional series opener, TC3 pitcher Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) set the tone early, striking out the first two Hudson Valley batters while recording a perfect opening frame. After Hudson Valley scored an unearned run in the second, TC3's offense responded in the third. Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) led off with a single and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Baldwinsville). Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) drew a walk, setting the stage for Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning). Scheer responded by lining a three-run homer over the right-center fence to give the Panthers the 3-1 lead. While Sherlock was taking control of the game in the circle, the Panthers added to the lead in the fourth. Singles from Fravel, Snyder, Scheer, and Sherlock powered TC3 to three more runs, making it 6-1 after four innings. Despite TC3 threatening in the fifth, the score held at 6-1 for the final.
 
Sherlock sparkled in the circle, setting a TC3 payoff record by striking out 13 while winning her tenth game of the year. At the plate, Scheer finished game one 2-for-3 with four RBI and Fravel went 2-for-4 with two runs scored.
 
The opener proved to be a warm-up for TC3's bats, as the Panthers eliminated any drama early in the second game. Playing as the visiting team, Fravel led off the game with a sharp single. After a Ducharme sacrifice moved Fravel all the way to third, the hit parade began. The next eight TC3 hitters all reached safely, setting in motion a merry-go-round on the base paths that ended with TC3 putting eight runs on the board in the first inning. After a scoreless bottom of the first for Hudson Valley, the Panthers resumed the attack in the second. Sherlock singled and Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski), cleared the bases with a long homer, making it 10-0 in the second. After a quiet third inning, the fourth saw TC3 take advantage of two Hudson Valley errors and score three more runs, all on singles with two outs. By the time the fourth inning was over, the Panthers held a 13-0 lead.
 
The lead was more than enough for Snyder and the Panthers defense. Snyder scattered seven hits and kept Hudson Valley off the board until allowing two runs in the final inning. She struck out seven while improving her own record to 18-1 on the season.
 
TC3 totaled 17 hits in game two, one shy of the team's record for a playoff game. Ten Panthers had a hit on the day, and six had multiple hits. Fravel sparked the attacked by going 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. Snyder, Radley, and Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) each had two hits and two RBI, and Sherlock and Stephanie Parsons (Afton H.S./Afton) each had to hits and a single RBI.
 
TC3's record is now 32-6 overall and 24-1 in region. Hudson Valley ends its season with a record of 22-9 overall and 14-7 in region.

Strong pitching and timely hitting helped the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team to a 5-1 win over Jamestown Community College-Cattaraugus in the opening round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs Tuesday. The Panthers, the #1 seed in the playoffs, now advance to the Region III-A championship series against #4 Hudson Valley Community College at 10 a.m. Friday in Corning.

Tuesday's game started with TC3 pitcher Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) setting the Jaguars down in order the first two innings. At the plate, the Panthers got started in the second. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) led off with a walk and Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) followed with a long home run to left to make it 2-0. In the third, the TC3 defense got sloppy and the visitors took advantage to score a run on a throwing error to bring the score to 2-1. After a scoreless fourth, TC3 plated a run in the fifth. Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) opened the frame with a single and moved to second on an infield hit by Natasha Kersch (Warsaw H.S./Warsaw). After a fly out and force out left Kersch on second with two outs, Snyder came through with a two-out single to score Kersch with the team's third run. TC3 added two more in the sixth, as Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) walked and Cassie Neadom (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) reached on an error, and both came around to score on a double by Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek). Snyder and the defense made it stand, setting down the last nine batters she faced in order.
 
Snyder allowed just two hits while striking out nine to improve to 17-1 on the season. She added a 2-for-3 effort at the plate to lead TC3's seven-hit attack.

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

After dropping the first game of a doubleheader featuring two nationally ranked teams, the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team bounced back with a solid win in the nightcap. The #5-ranked Panthers dropped the opener to #7 Herkimer County Community College, 6-3, before winning the second game, 9-1. The split snapped TC3's 19-game winning streak and leaves the Panthers with a record of 25-6 overall and 16-1 in Region III. Herkimer is now 29-7 overall and 27-4 in region.
 
TC3's bats started the day as cold as the weather. The Panthers were set down in order the first three innings and only reached in the fourth via a Herkimer error. TC3 recorded its first hit in the sixth inning, and by then the home team was trailing 4-0. In the sixth, Natasha Kersch (Warsaw H.S./Warsaw) drew a one-out walk and moved to third on a clean single by Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek). After a ground out, Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) broke up the shutout with a three-run homer to make it 4-3. Herkimer added two more runs in the top of the seventh to end the scoring at 6-3. The second game saw the home team take the lead early. In the bottom of the first, Snyder started a two-out rally by drawing a walk. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) followed by blasting a home run to make it 2-0. Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) and Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) followed with singles, but were left stranded as the inning ended. After Herkimer got a run back in the second, the Panthers took control in the third.
 
With one out, Sherlock laced another single. After a fielder's choice, Stephanie Parsons (Afton H.S./Afton), Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo), Kersch, and Fravel had consecutive singles, scoring three runs to make it 5-1. The score was unchanged until the sixth, when TC3 again put together a string of hits. Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) opened the inning with a single and Snyder followed with her second homer of the day to make it 7-1. After an out, Sherlock singled for the fourth time in the game, followed by singles from Radley and pinch-hitter Katelyn Percey (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg). Houtenbrink drove in a run with bases-loaded single, and, after a fielder's choice force at home, Fravel came through with a two-out single to make it 9-1 and end the game due to the mercy rule.
 
Snyder earned the win in the circle, striking out six to improve to 14-1 on the year. Sherlock led the way by going 4-for-4 in game two, while Fravel, Scheer, Radley, and Houtenbrink each had two hits as part of a 17-hit attack in the second game.

Sherlock No-Hitter Headlines Sweep of Genesee
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Sunday, May 01, 2011

A no-hitter from Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) was among the highlights Sunday as the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team swept a doubleheader from Genesee Community College, winning by the score of 9-0 and 10-0. TC3, winners of 19 straight, improves to 24-5 overall and 16-0 in Region III. Genesee's record drops to 9-20 overall and 9-13 in regional play.
 
Sherlock tossed her gem in the opener, striking out eight in the five-inning game. Sherlock walked one and hit another batter, but otherwise dominated. Only seven balls were put in play, with five grounds out and two pop outs, all in the infield. It was the third no-hitter tossed by TC3 pitchers this year, and the first of the season for Sherlock.
 
The offense did more than enough to support Sherlock. In the first, Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) put the Panthers on the board by bombing a three-run homer well over the outfield fence. Two batters later, Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) lifted a solo shot over the fence to make it 4-0 in the first inning. The Panthers added four more in the third, with Sherlock driving in the first run, Stephanie Parsons (Afton H.S./Afton) adding another RBI, and Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) coming through with a two-run single to make it 8-0. The final run came in the fourth, with Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) leading off with a double and coming in to score on a Genesee error.
 
In game two, Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) was nearly as dominant in the circle, allowing just five hits while shutting out Genesee. She struck out ten in five innings, including the final seven outs of the game, and sent eight of Genesee's nine batters down on strikes at least once.
 
Like the first game, it didn't take the TC3 offense long to get rolling. In the bottom of the first, Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) led off with a single, stole second and came in to score on a single by Ducharme. Snyder followed that up with a double to score Ducharme and make it 2-0. In the second, Cassie Neadom (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) reached on a single and eventually came in on another single by Ducharme to make it 3-0. In the fourth, the floodgates opened with the Panthers scoring seven runs. Ducharme, Snyder, and Scheer each had an RBI, Katelyn Percey (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) drove in two, and Katrina Teeter (Athens H.S./Sayre) stroked the first homer of her career, a two-run shot to make it 10-0.
 
Fravel, Ducharme, Scheer, and Sherlock each had three hits on the day as the Panthers totaled 22 hits in 42 at bats in the two games.

The Panthers added four more in the third, with Sherlock driving in the first run, Stephanie Parsons (Afton H.S./Afton) adding another RBI, and Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) coming through with a two-run single to make it 8-0. The final run came in the fourth, with Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) leading off with a double and coming in to score on a Genesee error.
 
In game two, Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) was nearly as dominant in the circle, allowing just five hits while shutting out Genesee. She struck out ten in five innings, including the final seven outs of the game, and sent eight of Genesee's nine batters down on strikes at least once.
 
Like the first game, it didn't take the TC3 offense long to get rolling. In the bottom of the first, Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) led off with a single, stole second and came in to score on a single by Ducharme. Snyder followed that up with a double to score Ducharme and make it 2-0. In the second, Cassie Neadom (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) reached on a single and eventually came in on another single by Ducharme to make it 3-0. In the fourth, the floodgates opened with the Panthers scoring seven runs. Ducharme, Snyder, and Scheer each had an RBI, Katelyn Percey (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) drove in two, and Katrina Teeter (Athens H.S./Sayre) stroked the first homer of her career, a two-run shot to make it 10-0.
 
Fravel, Ducharme, Scheer, and Sherlock each had three hits on the day as the Panthers totaled 22 hits in 42 at bats in the two games.

Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Playing for the first time in a week, the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team's bats showed no signs of rust as the Panthers blasted ten extra base hits, including four homers, in a doubleheader sweep of Jefferson Community College Thursday. The Panthers won by scores of 10-2 and 12-1 to improve to 22-5 overall and 14-0 in Region III. Jefferson is now 8-9 overall and 8-4 in regional play.
 
Both games were stopped early due to the mercy rule, with TC3 rapping out a total of 25 hits in 50 at bats. In game one, after a scoreless top of the inning for Jefferson, TC3 lead-off hitter Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) set the tone for the day. Fravel drilled the first pitch thrown back up the middle, bouncing off the Jefferson pitcher's leg for a single. Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) followed with another single, setting the stage for Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) to drive in the game's first run with a double to right. Before the inning was over TC3 had plated three runs to make the score 3-0. Jefferson got two back in the third, but the bottom of the third saw TC3 send 11 hitters to plate while scoring seven runs. Snyder led off the inning with a long home run, but an even bigger blast came from Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo), who drilled a grand slam, her second of the year and the third straight game she has hit a homer. After three innings the score was 10-2, and pitcher Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) made it stand, striking out the last two hitters of the game to seal the win.
 
Fravel, Ducharme, Snyder, and Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) each went 2-for-3 at the plate, with Fravel adding a double to her line. Sherlock struck out six while allowing no earned runs to improve her record to 8-3 on the season. Game two opened with Jefferson taking advantage of three well-placed hits to score a run and lead 1-0. The lead was short-lived. In the bottom of the first Fravel reached on a bunt and Radley followed with a run-scoring double. Snyder was next, blasting her second homer of the day to make it 3-1. The hitting continued in the second inning, with Houtenbrink's single starting a two-run rally that was capped by RBIs from Radley and Snyder. In the third, Sherlock led off the TC3 half with a solo homer, making the score 6-1 after three innings. The fourth featured ten TC3 batters, with six reaching via base hits. Fravel again set the tone with a lead-off double and Sherlock collected another two RBI with a single. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) and Houtenbrink also doubled as part of the big inning, making the score 12-1. After holding Jefferson off the board in the fifth, the Panthers had the sweep.
 
Snyder had another strong game in the circle. She struck out ten in five innings while scattering four hits. Her season record is now 12-1.
 
Radley and Houtenbrink each went 3-for-3 in game two, with Sherlock finishing 2-for-3 with three RBI.

Panthers Combine on Perfect Game in Sweep
Game 1 Box
Game 2 Box

Thursday, April 14, 2011

A pair of Tompkins Cortland Community College softball pitcher combined on a perfect game Thursday as part of a TC3 doubleheader sweep of Finger Lakes Community College. The Panthers won both games by the same score, 9-0, to improve to 16-5 overall and 8-0 in Region III. Finger Lakes drops to 3-21 overall and 1-9 in regional play.
 
In game one, TC3 pitcher Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) was nearly unhittable, allowing just a bloop single in the fourth and striking out eight in five innings. Offensively the Panthers set the tone early. Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) led off the bottom of the first with a double and came around to score on a ground out and wild pitch. In the second, TC3 sent 12 batters to the plate, scoring eight runs and putting the game away. Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) had two hits in the inning; she singled to open the frame and later hit a two-run homer to cap the scoring. In all, the second inning saw TC3 score eight runs on seven hits and one error by Finger Lakes.
 
The second game saw TC3's pitching completely shut down Finger Lakes, as Snyder and Katrina Teeter (Sayre H.S./Athens, Penn.) combined to toss a five-inning perfect game. Snyder threw the first three innings, striking out four, and Teeter came in for the final two, striking out three of the six batters she faced. It's the first perfect game in TC3 softball history.
 
Fravel again provided the spark at the plate, leading off the game with a single as part of a three-run rally in the first inning. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) provided the big hit with the bases-loaded, rocketing a hit off the pitcher's leg to drive in two. The Panthers put up three more in the third and then three more in the fourth, with Scheer in the middle of both rallies. In the third, Snyder led off with a single, Scheer walked, and Sherlock drove in Snyder with single. Scheer scored on an error, and Chelsea Houtenbrink (Waterloo H.S./Waterloo) drove in the inning's final run with a single. The fourth inning saw Fravel, Teeter, and Scheer each lace doubles, and Kaitlyn Percey (Charles o. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) deliver a sacrifice fly. By the end of the inning, the Panthers had a 9-0 lead on a total of 11 hits.
 
Fravel went a combined 5-for-6 with four runs scored, Sherlock went 4-for-5 with four RBI, and Snyder and Scheer each went 3-for-5, with Scheer driving in four runs on the day.

Game 2 Box

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

For the second time this season, the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team played a doubleheader with the top-ranked team in the nation. And for the second time this season, the Panthers ended the day with two wins. Playing in its home opener Tuesday, the TC3 Panthers beat Corning Community College 4-3 and 3-0. TC3, the #6-ranked team in the latest NJCAA national poll, is now 14-5 overall and 6-0 in Region III. Corning drops to 13-2 overall and 5-2 in regional play. Earlier this year, TC3 swept then #1-ranked Brookdale Community College in New Jersey.
 
The day started poorly for the Panthers, as Corning scored two runs in the first inning, thanks in part to a walk, hit batter, and an error. TC3 answered in the bottom of the inning, with leadoff hitter Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) ripping a double to open the frame. After number two hitter Katie Ducharme (C.W. Baker H.S./Syracuse) was hit by a pitch, the Panthers had runners at first and second. Two fielder's choice plays left runners at the corners with two outs, Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) came through with a two-out RBI to make it 2-1 after one inning.
 
After a scoreless second, TC3 took the lead with two-out rally in the third. After the first two hitters were retired, Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) laced a single. Sherlock and Stephanie Parsons (Afton H.S./Afton) followed, and each reached on an error, the last one bringing Scheer in to score the tying run. Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) added an RBI single to bring in Sherlock and make the score 3-2 after three innings. The lead grew to 4-2 in the fifth inning after Scheer opened the inning with single, moved to second on a single from Sherlock, reached third on a Parsons sacrifice, and came in to score on a Radley groundout.
 
Meanwhile, Sherlock settled down in the circle, working out of trouble in the second and third to take a 4-2 lead into the seventh. Corning managed a single run, but Sherlock closed the door, ending the game with a strikeout. She finished the game with three strikeouts, allowing two earned runs on six hits. Fravel led the offense with a 3-for-4 effort.
 
In game two, Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) was in control from the start, setting down the first seven batters she faced. She allowed just four hits in seven innings, and no Corning runner advanced past first base. Snyder struck out seven, including the final out of the game.
 
Offensively, the Panthers got started in the first inning. With one out, Duchare singled and moved to third on a single by Snyder. Ducharme scored the game's first run on a double steal, giving Snyder all the runs she would need. After a scoreless second, Fravel reached on a fielder's choice, and Ducharme singled with one out in the third. After a passed ball, Snyder drove them both in with a single to make it 3-0, a score that would hold up as the final.
 
Snyder and Ducharme each went 2-for-3, with Ducharme scoring twice and Snyder driving in two.

The Panthers, currently ranked 10th in the nation in the NJCAA poll, beat the current #1 ranked team 7-4 and 8-7, with game two going into extra innings. With the wins, TC3, the 2009 national champions, improves to 8-5 overall this year. Brookdale, the 2010 national champs, falls to 15-3-1 in 2011.
 
The day opened with TC3 jumping to an early lead. The Panthers scored two in the first inning and added to the lead with a three-run homer by Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) n the second. The lead grew to 6-0 with another run in the third before Brookdale got on the board with a run in the fourth. TC3 responded with a run in the top of the fifth to lead 7-1, but Brookdale came back with three in the bottom of the inning to make it 7-4. When neither team could score over the final two innings, TC3 had an opening game win.
 
Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) earned the win, striking out ten while allowing just five hits and two earned runs. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) went 2-for-3 at the plate, including a double.
 
Game two saw the home team take the early lead, moving ahead 3-0 after three innings. TC3 cut the lead to 3-2 in the fourth and took the lead in the fifth, using another Snyder home run as part of a three-run inning to lead 5-3. The Panthers made it 6-3 with a run in the sixth. The lead held until the bottom of the seventh, as Brookdale rallied with two outs to score three and tie the game at 6-6 and force extra innings. TC3 scored two in the eighth and when Brookdale was held to a single run in the bottom of the inning, the Panthers had the sweep.
 
Snyder capped her big day by going 4-for-4 at the plate with a homer, two runs batted in, and three runs scored. She also earned the win in the circle, striking out 12 and allowing seven hits over eight innings of work. Scheer had another big game at the plate, going 4-for-5 with another double, and Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) came through with a 3-for-5 effort. Sherlock added two hits and three RBI as part of TC3's team total of 15-hit attack in game two.
 
The wins mark the end of non-region play for the Panthers. TC3 opens regional play Saturday at Onondaga Community College.

Game 3 Boxscore

 
Monday was opening day for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team as the Panthers got the 2011 season underway with its traditional spring break trip to Florida. The season opened with a bang, playing three games against strong and more seasoned opponents. The day saw the Panthers fall to College of DuPage (Ill.), 12-4, and split a doubleheader with Prairie State College (Ill.), wining 15-8 before falling 11-6. For DuPage, the win capped their spring break trip with a record of 11-1. Prairie State, a Division II team from near Chicago, is now 3-7.
 
Monday marked the first time the Panthers have been able to get outside onto a field, and the inexperience of a team that includes 11 freshmen showed at times. TC3 committed six errors in the opener, most coming in DuPage's seven-run fifth inning that ended the game early. Sophomore co-captain Brooke Radley (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Pulaski) led the offense by going 2-for-3 with a double and home run. Mackenzie Sherlock (Paul V. Moore H.S./Central Square) also homered in the loss.
 
In the first game against Prairie State, Radley and Sherlock again sparked the offense. Radley went 2-for-5 with a double and three runs batted in, while Sherlock connected for her second homer as part of a 3-for-5, five RBI effort. Ashley Snyder (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) and Tayler Fravel (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) each went 2-for-4 with Fravel rapping out a pair of doubles. Snyder earned the win in the circle, striking out nine over seven innings of work.
 
The final game of the day saw five Panthers each record a pair of hits, with Fravel again poking a pair of doubles. Both Fravel and Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) collected two RBI in the loss.
 
TC3 travels to Walt Disney World Tuesday night to take on Division II Calhoun Community College of Alabama.
