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.

Sinnigen An All-American

December 17, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer player Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden) has been named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Women’s Division III All-America team. Sinnigen was named to the second team as a defender. Just six defenders were among the 24 players honored as All-Americans.

Sinnigen, who also was named an all-star by the NJCAA Region III and the Mid-State Athletic Conference, started all 16 games for the Panthers and was widely considered the best defender in the region. She anchored a TC3 team that posted eight shutouts and was sixth on the team in scoring with 10 points on four goals and two assists.

A two-year captain, Sinnigen is a liberal arts and sciences-teacher education major.

Sinnigen and Kendall Named All Region

November 15, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomores Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Mercedes Kendall (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region women’s soccer team. Sinnigen was voted to the first team as a defender and Kendall made second team at midfield. A total of 26 players were honored between first and second teams in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation.

Sinnigen led a TC3 defense that allowed posted eight shutouts in 16 games. She was a two-year team captain and started all 16 games this season. She scored four goals and had two assists, finishing sixth on the team in scoring despite playing most of her time in the defensive end.

Kendall split time between midfield and defense and was fourth on the team in scoring with six goals and five assists. She had a pair of strings of three straight games with at least one point, helping TC3 to a 4-1-1 mark in those games.

TC3 finished the year with a record of 10-5-1. The Panthers advanced to the playoffs for the ninth-straight year, advancing to the semifinal round.

This also marks the ninth-straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-region team, and the eighth time during that span with multiple selections.

Highlights–2009 Women's Soccer

Season Ends with Playoff Loss

Saturday, October 24, 2009

The TC3 women's soccer season came to a disappointing end Saturday with a loss in the opening round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The 7-1 defeat at the hands of Finger Lakes Community College means the Panthers end the year with a record of 8-10-1 overall. Finger Lakes advances to the Region III-B semifinal Tuesday at Broome Community College.
 
The game opened with the 11th seeded Panthers enjoying the better of play against the 6th seeded Lakers. Over the first ten minutes of action, TC3 dictated play, but the Panthers couldn't get a strong shot on goal. In the 13th minute, thing started to go very badly for the visitors. Finger Lakes scored the first goal of the game, with Kariann Breed seemingly catching the TC3 keeper off balance to make it 1-0. Breed made it 2-0 six minutes later before things feel apart for the Panthers. Over a three minute span, Finger Lakes scored three times to make it 5-0 heading into the halftime.
 
The score went to 6-0 20 minutes into the second half before TC3 finally got on the board. With just over 10 minutes left in the game, Jess Lorence (Unadilla Valley H.S./South New Berlin) hit a free kick from 20 yards out that Monica Sacco (Union Springs H.S./Union Springs) played into the goal. Another Finger Lakes score in the 83rd minute made the final 7-1.
 
It was the fifth straight year the Panthers have made the NJCAA playoffs.


Panthers Tie D-I Team

Monday, October 19, 2009

A goal in the closing minutes brought the TC3 women's soccer team all the way back from a two-goal deficit for a 3-3 tie against Sussex County Community College (N.J.) Monday. TC3's first tie of the season came in its regular season finale, leaving the Panthers with a record of 8-9-1 overall. Sussex, a Division I team out of Region XIX, is now 11-4-1 overall.
 
After the long drive to New Jersey, the Panthers got off to a slow start. Maggie Recalde put the home team in front with a goal in the tenth minute, followed by a second Sussex goal in the 14th minute, this time by Alyssa Lewis. TC3 got in the board in the 26th minute when Katelyn Arnold (Bayport-Blue Point H.S./Bayport) found Kristen Cleveland (Candor H.S./Candor) for a score. After Recalde scored again to make it 3-1 in the 35th minute, Courtney Henry (Thousand Islands H.S./Clayton) ended the scoring in the first half with a goal in the 41st minute. The tally, which had a double assist from Cleveland and Jess Lorence (Unadilla Valley H.S./South New Berlin).made it 3-2 at the break.
 
After the wild first half, neither team scored in the second half until the 87th minute, when Lorence played a cross to Henry for a scoring game-tying strike from 20 yards out. The goal gave Henry her fourth multiple-goal game of the year and ended the TC3 regular season on a positive note.
 
The Panthers now await Wednesday's NJCAA Region III playoff seeding announcement.

Henry Hat Trick Leads Panthers

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

A first-half hat trick by freshman Courtney Henry (Thousand Islands H.S./Clayton) gave the TC3 women's soccer team a 3-2 win over visiting Onondaga Community College Wednesday. TC3 improves to 4-4 overall and 3-3 in Region III play, while Onondaga drops to 1-4-1 overall and in regional action.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Playing against the fifth-ranked team in the nation, the TC3 women's soccer team came up short Thursday, falling to Finger Lakes Community College 2-0. TC3 is now 2-4 overall while Finger Lakes improves to 4-0.
 
The visiting Lakers put pressure on the Panthers most of the game.

With 1:06 left in the half, Elly Disbrow put Finger Lakes on the board with a shot from 20 yards that bounced off the post and into the net.
 
TC3 had its best chance to tie the game in the opening minutes of the second half.

The loose ball was picked up by Courtney Henry (Thousand Islands H.S./Clayton), but she couldn't get a clean shot on goal.
 
The final score came with 3:54 left in the game, when a Finger Lakes cross found the net after a TC3 defender tried to clear. The own goal made the final 2-0.
