Panthers Ranked in Top Ten in Nation

August 21, 2014


The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team is ranked in the top ten in the nation in both major preseason rankings. The Panthers are ranked #7 in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III poll and #9 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Junior College Division III poll. TC3 opens its season hosting the East Coast Cup August 30-31. TC3 plays Holyoke Community College (Mass.) at 7 p.m. on August 30 and Prince George’s Community College (Md.) Sunday at 1 p.m.

TC3 finished the 2013 season with a record of 13-1-3 and a ranking in the top ten of both polls. Lost to graduation and transfer to a four-year schools are many of last year’s roster, including four all-conference selections and two-time All-American Sean Streb, who is playing at SUNY Cortland this fall. But the cupboard is far from bare for TC3.

The Panthers return its leading scorer, All-American forward Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), along with its all-region goalkeeper, McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn). All-conference midfielder James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) is also among the six players back for Coach Andy Davis, who is entering his 10th season as head coach. He has been named a coach of the year six times in his nine year, and has amassed an overall record of 112-53-9.

TC3's Sean Streb Recognized as Scholar Athlete

June 18, 2014

Tompkins Cortland Community College student Sean Streb has been recognized by the State University of New York (SUNY) with a 2013-14 Scholar Athlete Award. Streb, a two-time all-American soccer player at TC3, graduated from TC3 last month with a liberal arts and sciences: math/science degree. He will attend SUNY Cortland in the fall.

The award recognizes outstanding academic excellence and athletic achievement. “SUNY scholar athletes are stand-out students who have excelled not only in their respective sports but in our classrooms as well,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher in announcing the recipients. “With an average GPA of 3.55 among this year’s honorees, we are exceptionally proud of their achievements. Congratulations to each of the students recognized, and thank you to the many professors, coaches, and staff across SUNY who support them."

A total of 83 student-athletes were recognized, representing 35 of SUNY’s 64 campuses. In order to be considered for this award, student-athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees’ academic credentials and athletic accomplishments were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across the SUNY system and members of the provost’s office.

Streb and Shutter Named NSCAA All-Americans

December 17, 2013

More honors for Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer players Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) and Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), this time from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Streb and Shutter have been named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Men’s Division III All-America team. Streb, one of just four repeat selections, was named to the first team; Shutter, a freshman, was chosen on the second team.

A total of 12 players were named to the first team, and Streb was one of just three defenders. A second-team selection in 2012, he started 16 games in 2013 while leading a defense that allowed just nine goals during those games. The Panthers posted eight shutouts and allowed two goals in a game just once while Streb was on the field. The co-captain also scored seven goals and had an assist for a TC3 team that advanced to the Region III championship game and finished the year ranked ninth in the nation.

Shutter, who also earned All-American honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), had a spectacular debut season. He was named the Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year, helping the Panthers to an undefeated conference record. He started 16 games, scoring in half. He netted a hat-trick in TC3’s win over Cayuga Community College and had two streaks of three consecutive games with a goal. He finished the year with 24 points on 10 goals and four assists.

This marks the fourth-straight year TC3 men’s soccer has been represented on the All-American team, and the second-straight year with two players honored.

Morgan Shutter Named All-American

December 6, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer player Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) has been named an All-American by the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA). The freshman was named to the Division III All-America second team. A total of 22 players were honored, including just seven freshmen.

Shutter adds the All-American honor to an impressive list of accomplishments. He was named to the Region III All-Region team and was chosen the Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year. He led TC3 in scoring with 24 points (10 goals and four assists), helping the Panthers to an undefeated regular season and an appearance in the Region III championship game.

Shutter is the first TC3 men’s soccer player to receive NJCAA All-American honors since 2010 (Lucas Heffron) and the sixth all time.

Panthers Well Represented on All-Region Team

November 15, 2013

Coach Andy Davis and four Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer players have earned NJCAA Region III all-region honors. Davis was named the co-coach of the year in the region; Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing), Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), and Rob Licciardi (North Babylon H.S./North Babylon) were all first-team selections; McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) was chosen to the second team. A total of 26 players were voted onto the team by the coaches of Region III. SUNY Adirondack and Herkimer County Community College each had five selections, followed by Genesee Community College and TC3 each with four selections. The other eight selections were distributed among six schools.

 

Streb is just the fifth Panther in the 19-year history of TC3 men’s soccer to repeat as a first-team all-region selection. He was a team captain and led a defense that allowed just 11 goals in 17 games, and only five over the final 11 games. Despite playing defense most of the season, he was second on the team with seven goals.

 

Shutter, a freshman and the Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year, led TC3 with 10 goals and 24 points. Licciardi, a sophomore, was fourth on the team with 11 points on four assists and three goals. Richards, a freshman, had an 11-1-3 record that included six shutouts. His 0.65 goals against average this season was the best ever for a TC3 goalie.

 

The regional award is the first such honor for Davis and the first for a TC3 men’s soccer coach since Mick McDaniel in 1999. Davis is a five-time MSAC Coach of the Year, including this season.

Panthers Dominate All-Conference Honors

October 25, 2013

The 2013 Mid-State Athletic Conference (MSAC) men’s soccer post-season honors have been announced, and for the second straight year, Tompkins Cortland Community College has dominated the honors. The Panthers claimed the most spots on the all-conference team, as well as the two individual awards. In voting by the coaches of the seven teams in the MSAC, TC3’s Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) has been named the Player of the Year and Andy Davis has been named the Coach of the Year. Additionally, TC3 claimed seven spots on the 20-man all-conference team; the next most was four. TC3 repeated as conference champions, winning the title with a record of 6-0 against fellow MSAC teams.

Shutter is the fourth different Panther in the last five years to be named conference player of the year, and the seventh all time. Shutter leads TC3 with 24 points on 10 goals and four assists. Joining Shutter on the all-MSAC team are Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing), a repeat selection; Rob Licciardi (North Babylon H.S./North Babylon); Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn); James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh); McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn); and Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon). It marks the 13th consecutive season TC3 has had at least four players named all-MSAC.

For Davis, it’s the fifth time he has been honored as the conference coach of the year. His teams have claimed five MSAC titles in his nine years at TC3.

Head Coach

Andy DavisRegion III Co-Coach of the Year
2013

MSAC Coach of the Year
2005, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013

Coach Davis has completed nine seasons directing the TC3 men's soccer program, compiling a record of 112-53-9 and nine consecutive regional playoff appearances. The 2013 season ranks as one of the best in nation, as TC3 went undefeated during the regular season, winning another Mid-State Athletic Conference championship and advancing to the Region III championship game. Coach Davis was named the Region III Co-Coach of the Year and the MSAC Coach of the Year, and seven players were honored with all-conference, region, and/or all-American recognition.

2013 was the latest chapter in what has been an amazingly successful book for Davis. After spending 2004 as the top assistant, Davis took control of the program in 2005. His first year saw the Panthers win the MSAC title, advance to the NJCAA Region III semifinals, and finish the year ranked 14th in the nation. The 2006 campaign saw a return to the NJCAA playoffs and a national ranking as high as eighth. In 2007 the Panthers again claimed the conference title and played their way to the regional semifinals. In 2008 TC3 posted a win over nationally-ranked Genesee in the opening round of the playoffs to again advance to the quarterfinals. The 2009 season saw the Panthers win two playoff games to advance to the Region III Final Four. In 2010, after winning another MSAC title, the team made it all the way to the Region III championship game. 2011 saw the Panthers again advance to the regional title game, posting a seven-game unbeaten streak along the way. A fourth MSAC Coach of the Year award and another Region III final four appearance came in 2012.

Coach Davis brings tremendous credentials to the program, both as a player and a coach. An all-state player at Binghamton High, he was an All-American and national player of the year while leading Herkimer County Community College to the 2000 national championship. He earned a full athletic scholarship to the University of Evansville (NCAA- Division I) before finishing his playing career at SUNY Cortland. As a Red Dragon, he helped the team to their first SUNYAC title in nearly a decade. Prior to coming to TC3, he served as an assistant coach at SUNY Cortland for two seasons, helping coach the team to SUNYAC titles both seasons.

The last two seasons, Coach Davis has worked with the Greater Binghamton Futbol Club, a member of the National Premier Soccer League. He serves as the assistant coach for the Thunder, which won the NPSL Keystone Conference in 2013.

Prior to taking over the women's team, McDaniel was the first head coach of the men's program. He led the men's team for 10 years, taking the Panthers to the Regional Final Four and winning the MSAC title during his tenure.

Battle of Top Ten Men's Soccer Teams Ends with Draw

Saturday, August 31, 2013

A battle of two teams ranked in the top ten in the nation ended in a draw Saturday as the #10-Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer team and the #6-Brookdale Community College (N.J.) finished knotted at 1-1. The Panthers are now 2-0-1 on the year while Brookdale is 0-0-1.

After a scoreless opening half, a TC3 turnover led to a Brookdale goal early in the second half. The score remained 1-0 for 27 minutes until the Panthers got the equalizer with 5:45 left in regulation. Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon) started the scoring play with a free kick near midfield, playing the ball into the box where James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) put his head on it and pushed the ball past the Brookdale keeper. TC3 put pressure on the rest of regulation, but was unable to score the winner. Two ten-minute overtime periods produced no more scores, leaving the final 1-1.

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) posted five saves.

The Panthers host County College of Morris (N.J.) Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
