Stevens Named Head Baseball Coach

July 23, 2014

Ryan Stevens is returning to Tompkins Cortland Community College as the new head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, replaces Pat Carroll. Carroll is leaving TC3 after eight seasons for a coaching position at Siena College, an NCAA Division I program in New York’s Capital Region.

Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career at TC3. While on the Dryden campus he was the Panthers’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator, helping build a brand new program into a playoff team. His time at the College coincides with the best four-year stretch in the program’s history, culminating with an NJCAA regional playoff appearance in his final season.

In 2008 he entered the world of professional baseball, taking a job with the Texarkana Gunslingers of the Independent Professional Continental Baseball league. After two years and a league championship with the Gunslingers, Stevens took his first head coaching job with the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League, an independent professional league based in Texas with teams through the southwest. In five seasons as the manager of the Cowboys, Stevens has led the team to the postseason each year, capturing two league championships and winning more than 200 games. He was named the Pecos League Manager of the Year, and has helped more than 50 players earn promotions to higher levels of professional baseball.

"Coach Stevens has proven to be a winner at every level, including the professional ranks, and I’m looking forward to him bringing that experience to our program. With his knowledge of the game, his passion for helping athletes succeed, and his commitment to hard work, he is exactly the right person to move TC3 baseball ahead," said TC3 Director of Athletics Mick McDaniel. "It’s a good fit: Ryan is a TC3 guy with tremendous regional and national connections. When the position was posted in early July, I had several local baseball icons call and urge me to give Ryan a chance at the helm of the Panthers. This was an easy decision. We are extremely excited to have Coach Stevens back in a Panther uniform."

Stevens, who also worked as an associate scout in the West Texas region for the Washington Nationals, served as an assistant coach at Ithaca College during the 2013-14 school year. He is a Dryden native, graduating from Dryden High before playing collegiate baseball at SUNY Cobleskill and Frostburg State University (Maryland).

Pfund Adds All-Region Honors

June 12, 2014

For the fourth time in the last five years, Tompkins Cortland Community College has an all-region baseball player. Sophomore Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) was chosen to the all-region team by coaches in the NJCAA Region III.

Pfund was also named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team. He started all 32 games for the Panthers, primarily as the team’s center fielder and lead-off hitter. He hit a team-best .365 with a slugging percentage of .552. He had five assists from the outfield, the most on the team, to go with 80 putouts. Between runs scored and runs batted in, he had a role in more than a third of TC3’s runs.

Pfund is the fifth TC3 player named all region since baseball was reinstated as a varsity sport in 2007.

Pfund Named All-Conference

June 5, 2014

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) has been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference baseball team. He was the lone TC3 selection to the 15-player team. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.

Pfund was TC3’s center fielder and lead-off hitter, starting in all 32 games. He led the Panthers in several offensive categories, including batting average (.365), hits (35), doubles (8), triple (2), home runs (2), stolen bases (9), slugging percentage (.552), and on-base percentage (.419). He scored nearly a quarter of TC3’s runs, crossing the plate 24 times (the team total was 101). He also drove in 15, the second most on the team.

It’s the eighth straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-conference team.

Panthers Drop Final Doubleheader

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Panthers Waste Record-Setting Performance

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Despite a record-setting performance on the mound, the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team dropped a road doubleheader Tuesday, losing to Corning Community College 3-2 and 7-2. TC3’s record is now 6-19 in Region III West Division and 6-24 overall. The final doubleheader of the season is Thursday at SUNY Broome.

The first game is where the record book was rewritten, courtesy of pitcher Zach Dufel (Amsterdam H.S./Amsterdam). Dufel entered the game a single strikeout short of the TC3 single-season record for K’s, and he recorded that with the first batter. But the freshman didn’t stop there, going on to strike out 11, a new TC3 single-game record. The effort nearly produced a win, thanks to a two-RBI single by Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) in the third inning. Corning scored a single run in the bottom of the third, but the score held at 2-1 into the seventh.

In the bottom of the seventh, Dufel got the first two batters out on six pitches, but with two outs, the next Corning batter worked a walk, and then came around to score the tying run on a triple that was hit after Corning was down to its last strike. Dufel again got ahead of the final batter, but again the Corning hitter connected with two strikes, driving in the winning run with a single.

Dufel’s final line was 6.2 innings, seven hits, three earned runs, two walks, and 11 strikeouts.

The second game saw TC3 score a run in the top of the first inning, but Corning answered with three in the bottom. The anthers plated a run in the second, but Corning added to its lead with a run in the second, two in the third, and a final score in the fourth.

Wilson Montalvo (Newburgh Free Academy/Bronx) went 2-for-4 as the only Panther with multiple hits. Jordan Buckley (Tuxedo H.S./Greenwood Lake) took the loss despite striking out four over four innings.

Walk-Off Win for Panthers

Sunday, May 04, 2014

The final home game of the season provided plenty of excitement for the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team as the Panthers rallied for a 5-4, walk-off win over Finger Lakes Community College Sunday. The visiting Lakers won the opening game of the doubleheader, 7-5, meaning TC3’s record is now 6-17 in Region III West Division and 6-22 overall. Finger Lakes ends the day 12-10 in division and 18-19 overall.

In game one TC3 came up short with its late-inning rally. The Panthers trailed 6-2 after five innings, but scored twice in the sixth to make it a two-run game. Finger Lakes scored in the seventh, but TC3 scored a run in the bottom of the seventh, and had two runners on base when the final out was recorded. Steve Tatich (Owego Free Academy/Owego) went 2-for-3 with two RBI and Aaron Hitt (McGraw H.S./McGraw) went 2-for-3 with a double.

Game two again saw Finger Lakes take the lead, scoring three in the top of the second and another in the fourth. The Panthers plated single runs in the second, third, fourth, and fifth to tie the score at 4-4. After a scoreless sixth, Finger Lakes had the potential go-ahead run thrown out at home to end the top of the seventh, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.

In the bottom of the seventh, sophomore Brandon Pollack (Groton H.S./Groton) led off by drawing a walk. Pinch-runner Bryan Joseph (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) stole second with one out, and moved to third on a single by Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty). Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) came through in the clutch, lifting a sacrifice fly to score Joseph with the game winner.

Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) had a big game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI. Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) went 2-for-4. Jordan Buckley (Tuxedo H.S./Greenwood Lake) earned the win, pitching two scoreless innings in relief, striking out two.

TC3 enters the final week of the season, with doubleheaders at Corning Community College on Tuesday and SUNY Broome Thursday.

Steve Tatich (Owego Free Academy/Owego) went 2-for-3 with two RBI and Aaron Hitt (McGraw H.S./McGraw) went 2-for-3 with a double.

Game two again saw Finger Lakes take the lead, scoring three in the top of the second and another in the fourth. The Panthers plated single runs in the second, third, fourth, and fifth to tie the score at 4-4. After a scoreless sixth, Finger Lakes had the potential go-ahead run thrown out at home to end the top of the seventh, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.

In the bottom of the seventh, sophomore Brandon Pollack (Groton H.S./Groton) led off by drawing a walk. Pinch-runner Bryan Joseph (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) stole second with one out, and moved to third on a single by Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty). Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) came through in the clutch, lifting a sacrifice fly to score Joseph with the game winner.

Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) had a big game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI. Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) went 2-for-4. Jordan Buckley (Tuxedo H.S./Greenwood Lake) earned the win, pitching two scoreless innings in relief, striking out two.

TC3 enters the final week of the season, with doubleheaders at Corning Community College on Tuesday and SUNY Broome Thursday.


Panthers Upend Finger Lakes

Thursday, May 01, 2014

TC3 baseball

Strong pitching and timely hitting helped the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team to a 2-1 win over Finger Lakes Community College Thursday. The second game was rained out in the first inning. TC3 is now 5-21 overall and 5-16 in the Region III West Division. Finger Lakes is now 15-18 overall and 9-10 in the West Division.

TC3 pitcher Zach Dufel (Amsterdam H.S./Amsterdam) tossed the complete game, working through trouble most of the way. In the first inning, Finger Lakes put two runners in scoring position, but a pick off took care of one, and the other was stranded on third. The Lakers loaded the bases with one out in the second, but Dufel got out of the jam with back-to-back strikeouts. In the bottom of the second, the Panthers, and Mother Nature, got on the board.

Chris Abreu (In-Tech Academy/Bronx) opened the frame with a walk, and moved to second and third on consecutive groundouts. With Abreu on third, the light rain picked up force, and a 40-minute rain delay followed. Once play resumed, Sam Allen (Moravia H.S./Moravia) blooped a hit just in front of the left fielder, scoring Abreu and giving the Panthers the 1-0 lead.

In the top of the third, two batters reached base, but Dufel again kept the scoreboard clean. In the bottom, Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty) stroked a single and moved to second on with two outs. For the second straight inning, a Panther came through – this time it was Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) driving in the run with a single to right. It would be the last TC3 run, but Dufel would make it stand, setting down the Lakers in order in the fourth and not allowing a runner past first in the fifth and sixth. A 1-2-3 seventh sealed the win for the home team.

Dufel finished the game with six strike outs, scattering six hits and allowing just a single unearned run. Jester went 2-for-3, collecting half of TC3’s hits.

The two teams are scheduled to play again Sunday at TC3, a make-up from Tuesday’s rain out.

Panthers Snap Skid with Win

Thursday, April 17, 2014

TC3 baseball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team snapped its eight-game skid Thursday with a 5-4 win over SUNY Broome in the first game of a home doubleheader. The visiting Hornets took game two 19-8 to earn the split. TC3 is now 2-15 overall and 2-10 in the Region III West Division. Broome stands at 8-8 overall and 6-2 in division.

The Panthers did all their game-one scoring in the second inning, erasing an early 2-0 deficit. Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) delivered the big blow, a bases-loaded triple that scored three of the team’s five runs. Freshman pitcher Zach Dufel (Amsterdam H.S./Amsterdam) made the runs stand, tossing the complete game, striking out nine and allowing just five hits and one earned run. Pfund finished the game 2-for-3 at the plate while Chris Abreu (In-Tech Academy/Bronx) went 3-for-3 with a double.

Things didn’t go as well in game two, as Broome scored eight in the first and three in the second to take a big lead. TC3 did respond, scoring twice in the bottom of the second, five times in the third and another in the fourth to pull within three at 11-8 heading into the fifth. The fifth proved to be the end, however, as Broome took advantage of control problems on the mound to score eight runs. A scoreless bottom of the fifth for the Panthers ended the game with a final score of 19-8. Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty) led the offense by going 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI. Pfund went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, and two RBI. Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) also finished with two hits, going 2-for-3.

Panthers End Spring Trip Winless

Friday, March 21, 2014

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team wrapped up its spring break trip Friday with two more games against Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville. The Panthers showed positive signs both offensively and defensively, but couldn’t stop the Division II Cardinals from handing TC3 a pair of defeats, both by the score of 12-2. TC3 ends the spring break trip 0-5, with three losses against Division II Catonsville.

The Panthers had five hits in each game, with Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) leading the way by going 3-for-6 with a double and two RBI on the day. Seven other Panthers collected a hit, with Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) driving in two.

On the mound, TC3 pitchers struggled with control, but managed to limit Catonsville to just seven hits in the opener and six in the nightcap. Ultimately control issues (19 walks) and shaky defense (eight errors that contributed to 13 unearned runs) did in the Panthers, but the team showed signs of improvement over the three day road trip.

TC3 returns to Dryden, hoping to start the home schedule Sunday, March 30 vs. Ithaca College JV.

Panthers Shut Out by D-II Ace

Thursday, March 20, 2014

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team continued its spring break trip Thursday with a game against Division II at Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville. After weather changed the scheduled doubleheader into a single game, the home team handed TC3 a 10-0 defeat, dropping the Panthers to 0-3 on the year. Catonsville improves to 4-7.

The Panthers couldn’t get any offense going against the ace of the home team’s pitching staff. Josh Ahearn (Downsville H.S./Downsville) picked up TC3’s lone hit. Three others reached base via walks, and Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) registered a stolen base.

The two teams are scheduled to face off again Friday with a doubleheader.


Panthers Open Season in New Jersey

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Wednesday saw the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team step on a baseball field for the first time this season, as the Panthers traveled to New Jersey to take on Cumberland County College. In addition to the home field advantage, Cumberland had the advantage of having played 15 games prior to today, winning ten of them against high level opponents. Not surprisingly, the result was a pair of losses for TC3, as Cumberland won 10-0 and 12-2. Cumberland is now 12-5 while TC3 is 0-2.

Each game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule. In the opener, Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) had the lone hit for TC3, leading off the fourth with a single and getting stranded at second after picking up the team’s first stolen base.

In the second game, Dozier again provided offensive highlights, but he wasn’t alone. Dozier went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a run batted in. Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty) also went 2-for-3, Wilson Montalvo (Newburgh Free Academy/Bronx) drove in a run and Jeremy Fredenburg (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) doubled while going 1-for-1 with a walk.

TC3 continues its spring break trip by playing at Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Thursday and Friday. The Panthers are scheduled to play doubleheaders against the Division II team both days.
