Dominating Win for Panthers

Saturday, November 22, 2014

The balanced attack of the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team led to a dominating win for the Panthers Saturday. TC3 beat Clinton Community College by a final of 57-22 to improve to 3-4 overall and 2-2 in Region III play. Clinton falls to 0-7 overall and 0-6 in regional games.

The game was never in doubt, as the Panthers took a 35-8 lead into the halftime. Eleven Panthers scored, including Mariah Crawford (Newfield H.S./Newfield) with a team-high 15 points. Leemu Yarkpawolo (Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation/Manhattan) had eight points and six rebounds, and Sierra Stoppkotte (Greene H.S./Greene) had eight points and three assists. Eight Panthers recorded at least one assist, led by six from Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly), and nine Panthers had a steal, with Bowman and Victoria Goehner (Watkins Glen H.S./Watkins Glen) each with five. Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) led the effort on the boards with nine rebounds.

The win sends the Panthers into the Thanksgiving break on a positive note. TC3 will enjoy a two-week break from games before returning to the court Saturday, December 6 to host Mohawk Valley Community College.

His former players have also shown up on the rosters at Buffalo State, Oneonta State, Oswego State, Old Westbury College, Morrisville State, Southwestern Oklahoma State, SUNY Fredonia, and Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire. A former standout athlete at Trumansburg High and a college baseball player, Coach Stevenson is TC3's assistant athletic director. He is also an assistant softball coach for the Panthers.
