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.

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.

TC3 Eliminated from Playoffs

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

TC3 softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team was eliminated from the NJCAA Region III playoffs Tuesday with an 8-3 loss to Corning Community College. The defeat in the first round of the playoffs ends TC3’s season with an overall record of 13-13. Corning, the region’s top-seed, advances to the Region III-A championship vs. Monroe Community College Friday. The championship series is hosted by TC3, and played at Cornell University.

The game opened with a scoreless first inning, but Corning took advantage of a TC3 error in the second to score two runs and take the early lead. The Panthers answered in the third, with Rebecca Trexler (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Parish) opening the frame with a great at bat, working a ten-pitch walk after falling behind 0-2. After fielder’s choice produced an out, singles by Kaitlyn Edsall (Whitney Point H.S./Whitney Point) and Karrie Snyder (Newfield H.S./Newfield) loaded the bases. A pop out produced the second out, but Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) came through with a big hit, a single that scored two runs to tie the game.

The tie didn’t last long, as the first Corning batter in the bottom of the inning homered to make it 3-2. The Red Barons added three more runs, all unearned after another Panther error, to move ahead 6-2. Both teams threatened but didn’t score in the fourth and fifth, sending the game to the sixth still 6-2.

In the sixth, Trexler again sparked a rally, ripping a double with two-outs. Sara Ford (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) delivered the run, driving in Trexler with a single to cut the deficit to 6-3. But any chance the Panthers had for a rally left when another TC3 error in the bottom of the inning allowed two more unearned runs to score, making the score 8-3. A scoreless seventh made the score hold, ending the TC3 season short of the regional final for the first time since 2008.

Ford led the offense by going 2-for-3, while Snyder and Forehand each went 2-for-4. Ford and Forehand split time on the mound, with each allowing just a single earned run.

Highlights–2004 Women's Softball

Season Ends with Playoff Loss

Tuesday, May 04, 2004

The TC3 softball season came to an end Tuesday as the Panthers fell in the first round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. TC3, the #7 seed, lost to #2 seed Corning 8-1. The Panthers end the season 22-11 overall and 17-11 in Region III. Corning, 27-4 overall and 24-3 in Region III, advances to the Regional Final Four.
 
The game started with both pitchers in control. After TC3 went scoreless in the top of the first, TC3's Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) needed just six pitches to retire Corning in order. Karpel picked up the first hit of the game with one out in the top of the second, but was stranded when the next two batters struck out. In the bottom of the inning, Corning took advantage of a pair of TC3 errors to score the first run of the game. TC3 tried to respond in the top of the third, putting runners on first and second with a two-out hit followed by a walk, but a hard ground out ended the threat. Karpel and the TC3 defense would again keep Corning off the board in the bottom of the third, making it 1-0 heading into the fourth inning.
 
In the top of the fourth, TC3 put a runner on with two outs, thanks to an infield single by Heather Andrews (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls), but again failed to capitalize, stranding Andrews when the final out was recorded with strike out. In the bottom of the inning, Corning looked to break the game open, scoring a run thanks to a TC3 error and loading the bases with one out. The Panthers stayed in the game as Karpel induced a ground ball that TC3 third baseman Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) turned into an inning-ending unassisted double play.
 
TC3 finally got a leadoff hitter on in the fifth as Tara Kowalski (Vestal/Vestal) singled off the third baseman's glove to open the frame. A bunt by Jessica Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) moved pinch runner Megan Miller (Salmon River/Bombay) to second, but she was caught straying too far from the bag and was picked off for the first out. Hope for scoring was rekindled when Miller stole second, but the next two batters failed to get the ball out of the infield, ending the inning. In the bottom of the fifth, Corning took control of the game, scoring five runs behind four hits and two TC3 errors to make it 6-0. The Panthers finally got on the board in the top of the sixth when Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) doubled and came around to score on a single by Karpel, but again a TC3 runner was stranded on base as the final two outs of the inning were recorded with Karpel standing on second base. Corning added two more runs in the bottom of the inning before TC3 went down in order in the seventh to make the final 8-1.
 
Karpel led the six-hit attack, going 2-for-3 with an RBI. She took the loss on the mound, finishing the season with a record of 15-6.


Panthers End Regular Season with Win
Earn #7 Seed in Playoffs

Sunday, May 02, 2004

Sunday was an eventful day for the TC3 softball team. The Panthers ended the regular season with a 3-2 win at Alfred State, and then, a few hours later, found out they have been awarded an NJCAA Region III playoff bid. TC3 is the #7 seed and will play at #2 seed Corning Community College. TC3 ends the regular season 22-10 overall and 17-10 in Region III.
 
Against Alfred State, TC3 scored two runs in the first inning to take an early lead. Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) started a two-out rally with a single, went to second on a wild pitch, and scored when Meghan Orman's (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) groundball was misplayed. After Orman stole second, she came around to score on a single by Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin). In the second, Tara Kowalski (Vestal/Endicott) opened the inning with single to left, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, took third on a wild pitch, and scored when Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) beat a two out infield single. The run gave TC3 a 3-0 lead, which would hold until the bottom of the last inning.
 
Through the first six innings, Karpel allowed just three hits and just one base runner past first base. In the sixth, Alfred staged a rally, scoring two runs and moving the tying run to second with one out. The TC3 defense came through, as shortstop Woodin fielded a ground ball, looked the runner back to second and fired to first to get the hitter. When the runner on second broke for third, first baseman Amy Stanton (Romulus/Romulus) quickly delivered the ball to third baseman Wallace, who applied the tag to end the game.
 
Karpel earned the win, her 15th against 5 losses. Woodin went 1-for-3, with a record setting RBI. The second inning RBI was her 29 of the season, breaking the record of 28 set by Laura Thomas in 2002.
 
TC3 and Alfred State were scheduled to play a doubleheader on Sunday, but rain forced the cancellation of game two in the fifth inning. TC3 was leading 5-4 when the game was called.
 
Not long after the game was called, TC3 received the call notifying the team of its postseason bid. The Panthers, who return to the playoffs for the second time in three years, are the #7 seed in the eight-team playoffs. TC3 plays at #2 seed Corning Community College Tuesday. It will be the third meeting between the two teams. Corning swept a doubleheader from TC3 on April 20.


Panthers Split with Herkimer

Saturday, May 01, 2004

The TC3 softball team earned a split with Herkimer County Community College Saturday, winning the opener 8-5 before dropping the nightcap 11-3. TC3 is now 21-10 overall and 16-10 in Region III.
 
Game two started with both teams threatening early but failing to score. In the third, TC3 loaded the bases with one out. Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) drove in Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) with a sacrifice fly to deep center, giving TC3 the early lead. The lead wouldn't last.
 
In the bottom of the inning, Herkimer scored four runs on four hits, a walk and a sacrifice fly. After TC3 responded with a single run in the top of the fourth, Herkimer added three runs on one hit, two walks and a hit batter to make the score 7-2. In the top of the fifth, Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) singled and stole second and scored on a single by Breanne Herne (Salmon River/Akwesasne) to cut the lead to 7-3 heading into the bottom of the fifth. It looked like the game would move to the sixth after the first two Herkimer batters were retired. With two outs, a TC3 error opened the floodgates, sparking a four run Herkimer rally that ended the game at 11-3. Wallace was the only Panther with multiple hits, going 2-for-2.

Panthers Take Opener at Herkimer

Saturday, May 01, 2004

The TC3 softball team earned a split with Herkimer County Community College Saturday, winning the opener 8-5 before dropping the nightcap 11-3. TC3 is now 21-10 overall and 16-10 in Region III.
 
The Panthers got on the board early in game one, with Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) delivering a two out double to drive in Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) with the first run of the game. After holding Herkimer off the board in the bottom of the inning, the bats came to life as the Panthers scored five runs on four hits, highlighted by Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) and Orman each coming through with two-out RBI doubles. The lead grew to 8-0 in the fourth, as Wallace delivered another double and came around to score on a single by Orman.
 
On the defensive end, Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) was cruising through the first three innings, allowing just one hit. In the fourth, Herkimer finally broke through, scoring three runs to cut the TC3 lead to 8-3. After a scoreless fifth, Herkimer mounted its final threat in the sixth. After the leadoff hitter grounded out, the next two batter reached with hits and eventually scored, making it 8-5. With one out, and the bases loaded, Karpel buckled down and induced an infield pop and ground out. A scoreless seventh secured the win for TC3.
 
Karpel struck out five to improve to 14-5 on the year. Orman led the offense, going 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. Wallace added two doubles and two RBIs and Phillips finished 2-for-3.


Panthers Throw Away Game

Friday, April 30, 2004

Seven unearned runs and nine errors proved too much to overcome as the TC3 softball team dropped an 8-1 decision to Mohawk Valley Community College Friday. TC3 falls to 20-9 overall and 15-9 in Region III. Mohawk Valley improves to 13-9 in Region III.
 
The game got sloppy early for TC3, as three errors in the first inning led to two Mohawk Valley runs. The Panthers got on the board in the bottom of the second. Breanne Herne (Salmon River/Akwesasne) reached base with a single and moved to third on a double by Tara Kowalski (Vestal/Vestal). After an out, Jess Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) came through with a two out RBI single, making the score 2-1. Any momentum gained was short lived, as Mohawk Valley scored four unearned runs in the top of the third as TC3 again had three errors. The Panthers looked to respond in the bottom of the frame, loading the bases with no outs, but after a strike out, pop up, and another strike out, TC3's best chance to get back in the game had passed. Mohawk Valley added runs in fourth and sixth innings while TC3 failed to get another base runner the rest of the way.
 
On a bright note, Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) set a new record for hits in a single season when she singled in the first. On the day she went 2-for-3 giving her 42 hits on the year, passing the record of 40 set by Laura Thomas in 2002.

Karpel Comes Through in Win

Thursday, April 29, 2004

A two-hit shutout by pitcher Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) and a four-run sixth inning helped the TC3 softball team earn a split with nationally ranked Broome Community College Thursday. Broome won the opener 4-1 before the Panthers took game two 4-0. TC3 is now 20-8 overall, 15-8 in Region III, and 5-3 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome is 15-7 in Region III and 3-3 in the MSAC.
 
Game two was a classic pitchers' duel. Karpel averaged just over 11 pitches each inning, setting down Broome in order in three of the seven innings and only allowing one runner on in two others. She worked out of mild trouble in the third when induced a pop-up and a strike out with a runner on second with one out, and came through in the clutch in the fifth. After getting the first two hitters out, she allowed a single before Broome loaded the bases on an error and a walk. With the bases-loaded and Broome's number three hitter at the plate, Karpel shut the door with a strike out.
 
While Karpel was shutting down Broome, TC3's hitters were struggling. Through five innings, TC3 had managed just three hits and had put a runner in scoring position just once. In the bottom of the sixth, the tide would change. TC3's Megan Miller (Salmon River/Bombay) pinch hit to lead off the inning, and reached on an error. After stealing second base, Miller moved to third on a single by Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT), and came in to score the first run when Amber Wallace's (Canastota/Canastota) hard grounder was misplayed by Broome. After the first out was recorded, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) came through with a big hit, a single to center that scored both Woodin and Wallace. Another Broome error allowed Orman to score, giving TC3 a 4-0 lead.
 
From there, it was all Karpel, as the freshman came out strong in the seventh, inducing a weak grounder and striking out the final two batters to earn the win. Karpel struck out seven in the game to improve to 13-5 and drop her ERA to 1.07. Orman was the only Panther with multiple hits, collecting two singles.
 
TC3 hosts Mohawk Valley Community College for a make-up game Friday at 4:00 PM. The game is the make-up of the second game of the doubleheader scheduled for Sunday, April 25. TC3 won the opener of that doubleheader 8-0 before rain forced the postponement of game two.
 


Panthers Drop Opener to Broome

Thursday, April 29, 2004

A two-hit shutout by pitcher Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) and a four-run sixth inning helped the TC3 softball team earn a split with nationally ranked Broome Community College Thursday. Broome won the opener 4-1 before the Panthers took game two 4-0. TC3 is now 20-8 overall, 15-8 in Region III, and 5-3 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome is 15-7 in Region III and 3-3 in the MSAC.
 
Game one started with TC3 jumping to an early lead. In the second inning, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) reached first on a wild pitch on strike three. After two batters moved her to third, slowly for TC3, Jessica Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) drove her in with a two-out single. The lead wouldn't last long as Broome scored two unearned runs in the top of the third. TC3 looked to respond in the bottom of the inning, putting two runners on with one out and loading the bases with two, but couldn't get any across. The same would happen in the sixth inning, as TC3 had runners on in each inning, and had runners in scoring position in five of the seven innings. The visitors added unearned runs in the sixth and seventh to make the final 4-1.
 
Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) collected two of TC3's six hits. She is now tied for the TC3 single season record with 40 hits (Laura Thomas, 2002). Karpel allowed no earned runs while striking out four.

The TC3 softball team set a new record for wins in a season by sweeping Morrisville State Wednesday. TC3 won the opener 12-6 before taking the second game 25-2 to improve to 19-7 overall and 14-7 in Region III. TC3's previous record for wins in a season was 17, set in 2002.

Game two was all TC3 from the first batter. Jessica Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) opened the game by beating out a bunt for a base hit, stole second and scored on a single by Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT). Woodin would eventually score on a sacrifice fly by Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) to give TC3 an early 2-0 lead. The Panthers would add another two runs in the second before breaking the game open with six runs in the third and three runs in the fourth. The real damage, however, was done in the fifth, when the first six TC3 batters would score to spark a 12 run inning. Emily Darling (Trumansburg/Trumansburg) collected two hits and two RBI's in the fifth inning as TC3 tied a school record for runs in a game.
 
Darling finished 4-for-5 with three RBI's. Miller and Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) each collected three hits, with Woodin leading the team with four RBI's.

Panthers Win Behind Karpel No-Hitter

Sunday, April 25, 2004

A no-hitter by Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) propelled the TC3 softball team to an 8-0 win over Mohawk Valley Community College on a cold and rainy Sunday in Dryden. The second game of the doubleheader was rained out. TC3 improves to 16-6 overall and 11-6 in Region III. Mohawk Valley falls to 19-12 overall and 9-8 in Region III.
 
Karpel set the tone for the game early, striking out two of the three batters she faced in the first inning. TC3 threatened in the bottom of the inning, but failed to push a run across. In the second, TC3's Breanne Herne (Salmon River/Akwesasne) started a string of four consecutive singles with a one-out line drive to left. After Tara Kowalski (Vestal/Vestal) and Jess Miller (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) each singled to load the bases, Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) came through with a run scoring single, giving the Panthers a 1-0 lead after two innings. After Karpel shut down Mohawk Valley in the top of the inning, TC3 exploded for six runs in the bottom of the third. Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) provided the big hit, a two-run single. TC3's offense, which slapped out 12 hits in four innings of hitting, added a run in the bottom of the fourth to make it 8-0. After the first two Mohawk Valley runners reached on errors in the top of the fifth, Karpel induced the next hitter to pop out to second. A walk loaded the bases before Karpel closed the door, getting the next hitter to ground into a fielder's choice before striking out the last hitter to end the game.
 
The outing was the second straight standout game for Karpel. On Thursday, she allowed just one hit in shutting out Finger Lakes Community College. She finished Sunday's game with seven strikeouts and one walk in five innings, notching her third shutout of the season and improving her record to 12-3.

Dellefave Works Out of Jam to Preserve Win

Thursday, April 22, 2004

A one-hitter in the opener and a dramatic ending to the nightcap helped the TC3 softball team sweep a doubleheader from Finger Lakes Community College. The Panthers won game one 8-0 and held on for a 7-5 win in game two to improve to 15-6 overall and 10-6 in Region III. Finger Lakes is now 1-9 both overall and in Region III.
 
In game two, TC3's offense again took several innings to warm up. The Panthers managed just one hit over the first three innings, while Finger Lakes used a big third inning to take a 3-0 lead. In the third, Finger Lakes rapped out five hits, but Ashley Dellefave (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) worked out of a bases-loaded jam to minimize the damage. Her teammates started to climb out of the hole in the top of fourth. Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) and Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) again sparked the rally, with Woodin reaching base on an error before Wallace drove her in with a triple. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) followed with a double to score Wallace and make the score 3-2.

Karpel One-Hitter Leads Panthers

Thursday, April 22, 2004

A one-hitter in the opener and a dramatic ending to the nightcap helped the TC3 softball team sweep a doubleheader from Finger Lakes Community College. The Panthers won game one 8-0 and held on for a 7-5 win in game two to improve to 15-6 overall and 10-6 in Region III. Finger Lakes is now 1-9 both overall and in Region III.
 
TC3 opened game one with several scoring threats, putting a runner in scoring position each of the first four innings but failing to plate a run.

The Panthers poured on five runs on six hits in the sixth to make it 8-0. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) did the rest.

Panthers Win Streak Snapped

Tuesday, April 20, 2004

The TC3 softball winning streak came to a screeching halt Tuesday at Corning Community College as the Panthers managed just three hits in losing both games. TC3 was no-hit in the opening 4-0 loss before dropping the nightcap 8-0. TC3 falls to 13-6 overall and 10-2 in Region III.
 
Game two saw TC3 put together the first scoring opportunity. With one out in the second inning, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) doubled to right-centerfield for the first TC3 hit of the afternoon. Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) followed with an infield single to give TC3 first and second with one out. The rally fizzled as the next two Panthers struck out, stranding Orman and DeAngelis on base. It would prove to be the only time TC3 would get two runners on base in an inning, and one of two innings TC3 would get any runner on. Orman added her second double in the fourth inning, but was again stranded on second. Corning scored a single run in the bottom of the second before exploding for seven runs in the bottom of the fifth.
 
TC3 looks to rebound at Finger Lakes Community College Thursday.


Panthers Hitless in Loss

Tuesday, April 20, 2004

Few things went right for the Panthers in game one. After the first three TC3 hitters went down on strikes to open the game, Corning scored four runs on five hits in the bottom half of the first. That proved to be all Coring would need, as Red Barons pitcher Heidi Brooks shut down the Panthers, recording 13 strike outs and striking out the side three times. Only two Panthers reached base, one on an error and one on a fielder's choice, and no Panther was able to get a ball out of the infield.

After Cobleskill cut the lead to 6-4 in the top of the sixth, TC3 put the game away with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning. Heather Andrews (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) paced the offense by going 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI's. Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon), Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Woodbury, CT), and Alissa French (Marathon/Marathon) each collected two hits, with Wooding driving in three runs and Phillips pounding out a triple.

Cobleskill falls to 0-6 overall and in Region III.
 
Orman was the hitting star of game one, setting a TC3 single game record for RBI's while going 3-for-3 with a double and a grand slam home run. Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Woodbury, CT) was a perfect 4-for-4 while Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) added three hits. Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) and Jessica Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) each added two hits to the attack.

Panthers Work Overtime in Win

Thursday, April 15, 2004

After winning the opener 10-0, the TC3 softball team needed extra innings in the nightcap to complete a doubleheader sweep of Fulton-Montgomery Community College Thursday. The Panthers scored five runs in extra innings to post a 9-5 win in game two and push their winning streak to eight games. TC3 is now 11-4 overall and 6-0 in Region III. Fulton-Montgomery is 4-6 overall, 1-5 in Region.
 
Game two had a dramatically different start, as TC3 failed to score in the first two innings. With the score 0-0, Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) led off the third with a triple to left field and scored on an RBI single by Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Woodbury, CT). Fulton-Montgomery answered with unearned runs in the third and fourth to take a 2-1 lead. After the Panthers tied it in the top of the fifth. Phillips led off with a single, went to second on Woodin's sacrifice bunt, and scored on a double by Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota). Fulton-Montgomery responded with a run of their own in the fifth to lead 3-2. TC3 tied in the sixth when Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) got on an error, stole second and scored on a ground out by Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) to tie it at 3-3. Fulton-Montgomery re-took the lead with a run in the bottom of the sixth, setting the stage for a TC3 comeback.
 
The seventh again started with Phillips leading off, this time reaching base on a walk. She went to second on a passed ball and advanced to third on a Woodin sacrifice bunt. Wallace drove Phillips in with a sacrifice fly to left, tying the game at 4-4. In the bottom of the inning, it looked like the Panthers' win streak was in jeopardy as Fulton-Montgomery's leadoff hitter made it to third with no outs. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin), working in relief, shut the door on the rally by striking out three straight and sending the game into extra innings.
 
In the eighth, TC3 scored five runs with the benefit of just one run.

Thursday, April 15, 2004

Panthers Open Regional Play with Win

Friday, April 09, 2004

The bats came to life for the TC3 softball team Friday as the Panthers swept a doubleheader from Genesee Community College. TC3 pounded out 11 hits in an 8-3 win in the opener before exploding for 12 hits in a mercy-rule shortened 12-1 win in the nightcap. TC3 improves to 7-4 overall and 2-0 in NJCAA Region III play. Genesee falls to 2-10 overall and 2-2 in Region III.
 
Playing on a sunny but cold afternoon, it looked like the TC3 offense would heat up early. The first two Panthers reached base in the opening inning, but the rally fizzled as the next three batters went down in order. After holding Genesee off the board in the bottom of the inning, the offense opened up, plating six runs on five hits in the top of the second. Genesee would score single runs in three innings but get no closer than five runs as TC3 pulled out the final 8-3.
 
Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) earned her sixth win of the year, scattering six hits while striking out seven. Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) and Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) each went 3-for-4 to lead the attack.


Panthers Win on Herne Base Hit

Thursday, April 08, 2004

A clutch base hit in the bottom of the seventh inning of game two gave the TC3 softball team a sweep of the Cortland State club team Thursday. The Panthers won the opener 10-5 before rallying for a 5-4 win in the nightcap. TC3 is now 5-4 on the year.
 
Game two started poorly for TC3, as Cortland State scored a quick three runs in the top of the first. TC3 would cut into the lead with a run in the second before tying the score with a pair in the fourth. Cortland State responded with the go-ahead run in the top of the fifth before TC3 tied the game in the bottom of the sixth setting the stage for a dramatic finish. Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) led off the inning with a solid single to left and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. Heather Andrews (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) worked out a walk and, after a passed ball moved Wallace to third, Cortland State issued an intentional walk to load the bases for Breanne Herne (Salmon River/Akwesasne). Herne worked the count to 3-and-1 before drilling a single to left, scoring Wallace with the game-winner. Herne finished the game with two hits and two RBI's to lead the Panthers. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) earned the win in relief, allowing no runs in two innings of work to move to 5-2 on the year.

Panthers Sweep Cortland State Club Team

Thursday, April 08, 2004

The home-standing Panthers took an early lead in game one, thanks to the powerful pair of Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) and Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota). The duo smacked back-to-back doubles to spark a three run rally in the first inning to give TC3 the lead. Woodin added an RBI single in the second to put TC3 up 4-0 before Cortland rallied to tie the game with four unearned runs in the top of the third. After being held in check in the third, TC3 responded with a three-run fourth inning, with Woodin knocking in the first run and Wallace driving in the final two with another double. Cortland would cut the lead to 7-5 before TC3 added three insurance runs in the sixth to put the game away. Wallace, Woodin, and Jess Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) each collected two hits, with Wallace and Woodin driving in three and two runs, respectively. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) earned the win, allowing just one earned run while striking out four.

Against Monroe, the Panthers opened the scoring with a run in the top of the first. The bottom of inning looked to be going smoothly, with Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) retiring the first two batters and getting the third hitter to ground to third. Unfortunately for TC3, an error by the first baseman opened the door for Monroe. Monroe took advantage, scoring four unearned runs in the inning before scoring four more in the second to tae an 8-2 lead. A single TC3 run in the top of third made it 8-2 before Monroe closed out the scoring with tally in the sixth.

Oberlin added another in the top of the second before TC3 scored its first run in the bottom of the inning. After the Panthers tied the game in the bottom of third, Oberlin scored in both the fourth and fifth innings to take a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the last inning. After the first batter flew out, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) reached on an error to start the rally. Pinch hitter Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) bloopped a base hit to left to put the tying run on base. After strike out, Catlain Vincet (Lansing/Lansing) drew a walk to load the bases and set the stage for Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin). Karpel responded by lacing the second pitch she saw into the left field corner for a bases-clearing, game-winning double.

Panthers Fall to 2-3 with Loss

Tuesday, March 30, 2004

TC3 fell to 2-3 in its spring break trip to Myrtle Beach with an 11-3 loss to Monroe Tuesday.
 
Against Monroe, TC3 again started slowly, missing a scoring opportunity in the top of the first by failing to score after getting runners on first and third with one out. In the bottom of the inning, a misplayed fly-ball with two outs turned into a two-run triple and opened the door on a four-run inning. Monroe added three more in the second before TC3 put together a rally in the fourth. Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) led off the inning with a single before TC3 loaded the bases with one out. A walk and a groundout scored two before Jess Miller (Owego Free Academy/Owego) stroked a two-out single to score TC3's final run. Monroe responded with three of their own in the bottom of the inning before scoring again to end the game in the fifth.


Panthers Even Record with Win

Tuesday, March 30, 2004

TC3's spring break trip to Myrtle Beach continued with a win over Oberlin College (OH) 6-2 Tuesday. TC3 is now 2-2.
 
Against Oberlin, a four-year NCAA Division III team, the Panthers started slowly. After TC3 went down in order in the top of the first, TC3 pitcher Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) had to work out of a bases loaded one out jam in the bottom of the inning. A strikeout and groundout ended the threat. After two more scoreless innings, Oberlin pushed the first run of the game across in the bottom of the fourth. Oberlin's 1-0 lead would stand until the top of the sixth. Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) started the rally with a walk, advanced to second on base hit by Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota), and moved to third when Karpel was hit by a pitch. Woodin tied the game with aggressive base running, scoring on a wild pitch that only rolled a few feet from the catcher. It proved to be the spark the Panthers needed, as the next four players in the line up scored, capped by a two-run, two-out RBI single by Ashley Dellefave (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls).
 
Wooding, Wallace, and Karpel each finished with two hits to lead the offense. Karpel earned the win, striking out five while walking one.


Panthers Drop Twinbill

Monday, March 29, 2004

Game two showed the Panthers' resolve, as they came back from down 5-1 after two inning to take an 8-6 lead in the middle of the fourth. Monroe would score single runs in each of the final four at bats to pull out the win. TC3 out hit Monroe 8-6, but again were victimized by poor fielding, committing 9 errors. Amber Wallace (Canastota/Canastota) was a perfect 3-for-3 in with a double and 4 RBI's. Samantha DeAngelis (Auburn/Auburn) had a multiple-hit game with a pair singles in four at bats. Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) allowed just one earned run while taking the loss.

Monroe led 4-1 after two innings before erupting for 8 runs in the third and 5 more in the fourth. Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) and Ashley Woodin (New Fairfield/Waterbury, CT) each collect two base hits to lead the offense.


Panthers Win Opener in Myrtle Beach

Sunday, March 28, 2004

TC3 kicked off the 2004 season with a 3-1 win over Clark State, a four-year college from Ohio. The Panthers used an opportunistic offense to score three runs on just two hits in the opening game of the team's spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Clark State falls to 4-6 with the loss.
 
The game started slowly for the Panthers, with the top three hitters going down in order in the first. The second inning started with Alice Karpel (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) getting hit by a pitch to give TC3 its first runner. Jolene Phillips (Marathon/Marathon) reached base on an error and after a pair of outs advanced the runners to second and third, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga/Aurora) delivered a single up the middle to score both runs. Clark State cut the lead to one with a run in the top of the fourth, but TC3 responded with a score in the bottom of the inning to make it 3-2. The final run was scored without the benefit of a hit, as a TC3 batter reached on an error, was sacrificed to second with a bunt, and scored on another error.
 
Karpel earned the win in her collegiate debut, allowing one earned run while striking out seven. The Myrtle Beach trip continues with TC3 playing a pair against Monroe Community College Monday.
