Two-sport standout Brittney Randall has signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play soccer and basketball for the TC3 Panthers in the 2015-16 school year. Randall has been honored as an I.A.C. all-star multiple times, including being named the 2014-15 I.A.C. North Large School Basketball MVP.
"We're very excited to have Brittney as part of this recruiting class," said TC3 Women's Basketball Coach Dave Stevenson. "She has great athleticism, is a proven scorer, and can play multiple positions. Brittney had a great high school career and we expect to see great things from her at TC3."
Candor's Rachel Barnhart will be a TC3 Panther. The I.A.C. All-Star signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to join Coach Dave Stevenson's women's basketball program in 2015-16.
"Rachel won't be out-worked on the court, and that's something we place a tremendous value on," said Stevenson. "She is a talented player that just hustles. I think she will fit in very nicely with the team we're looking to put on the floor. I look forwarding to coaching Rachel. "
Whitney Point all-star Jessica Cafferty has signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent and will join the TC3 Panthers in the fall. The 5-8 Cafferty is a two-time I.A.C. All-Star, including her senior year when she led the Eagles to the I.A.C. Large School Championship.
"Jess has great physical skills and a high basketball I.Q.," said TC3 Women's Basketball Coach Dave Stevenson, noting she comes from a winning high school program at Whitney Point under Coach Tom Kraly. "I fully expect she will come in and be a key contributor to our success. I'm very excited to see what Jess will do for us in the fall."
The 2015-16 recruiting class will include highly-touted standout Rickeya Atkinson. The all-conference player from Stratford, Connecticut signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent and will join the Panthers in the fall.
TC3 women's basketball coach Dave Stevenson is excited about what Atkinson brings to the program. "Rickeya is exactly the kind of player we are looking for as we build this program," said Stevenson. "She is a hard worker on and off the court, and I'm confident she will do great things as a Panther."

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) has been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference women’s basketball all-conference team. A total of ten players are chosen to the team, with voting by the coaches from the seven colleges in the conference. Bowman is the 11th Panther women’s basketball player ever named all-MSAC, and the first since 2013.
Bowman led TC3 in scoring, averaging 11.3 points per conference game. She topped 20 points in a game four times, including a 31-point performance in the season finale that ties for the second-most points ever scored in a game by a TC3 women’s basketball player. In that game she reached 500 career points, putting her in a very exclusive club. With her 500th career point, she became just the second player in TC3 women’s basketball history to finish her career with at least 500 points, 200 rebounds, 100 assists, and 100 steals.
Bowman is a business administration major.
On the final day of her Tompkins Cortland Community College basketball career, Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) reached a milestone that has only been reached once before in the history of TC3 women’s basketball. Bowman scored 31 points in Sunday’s 82-72 loss at Schenectady County Community College to give her exactly 500 for her career, making her just the second to total at least 500 points, 200 rebounds, 100 assists, and 100 steals over the course of her two-year career.
Bowman joins TC3 Panthers Hall of Famer Jaime Fisher in the 500-200-100-100 club. In addition to scoring 31 points Sunday, which is just one point shy of the TC3 single-game scoring record, Bowman added eight rebounds, five assists, and four steals.
Sunday also saw Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) reach a milestone with huge game. She had a big double-double of 21 points and 21 rebounds, giving her exactly 400 points and putting her over 300 rebounds for her career.
The loss ends TC3’s season with a record of 6-18.

Coach Stevenson takes over the women's basketball program for the 2014-15 season after the most successful run in the history of the TC3 men's basketball program. Over the last decade directing the men's program, Coach Stevenson's teams continued to establish new records for wins, topping 20 victories three times, and winning the Mid-State Athletic Conference championship three times (including the last two seasons).
Stevenson joined the men's basketball staff as an assistant in 2003-04, bringing a strong work ethic and knowledge of the game to the floor each night. He is well known for caring for his students both on and off the court, tracking academic progress as well as developing basketball skills. He has worked hard to bring quality players into the program, and to help those players continue their careers at the four-year level. In his time with the program, he has helped players earn scholarships to Mercy College in New York, Drake University in Iowa, and Avila University in Kansas. 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.

Coach Ricker returns for his fifth season on the bench with the women's program. A strong recruiter and teacher on the court, he has been instrumental in bringing in the program's top players and helping them reach their potential. His passion for the game extends back to when he was an IAC all-star at Dryden High. He played college ball at Onondaga Community College, appearing the Region III All-Star Game, and at SUNY Potsdam.
Coach Ricker has consistently been supportive of TC3's student-athletes, both on and off the court, a quality he shares with new Head Coach Stevenson.
Coach Moricette joins the staff for the 2014-15 campaign. A graduate of TC3 and an Enrollment Services Specialist at the College, her work with the athletic department dates back to her days as a student when she worked as a manager for TC3 Hall of Famer Brent Doane's women's basketball program. She was a captain of her high school team in the Bronx before an injury ended her playing career. She finished high school as a manager, helping the coaching staff as needed. After her time with the TC3 women's program, she coached several AAU teams back in the Bronx, gaining experience that she will bring to the bench at TC3.

An eight-point halftime lead wasn’t enough for the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team Saturday as the Panthers fell victim to a rally by Hudson Valley Community College, losing by a final of 55-51. TC3 drops to 2-6 overall and 2-4 in Region III. Hudson Valley improves to 4-5 overall and 4-4 in Region III.
The game started well for the home team. After Hudson Valley scored the first basket, TC3 rattled off 12 straight, including five by Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) and four by Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor). TC3 had another run later, this one 14-3, to push the lead to 28-11 with five minutes left in the opening half. The visiting Vikings cut into the lead the rest of the way, helped in part by going 7-for-8 from the free throw line, ending the half with the home team ahead 33-25.
The second half was tough to watch for fans of the TC3 offense. The Panthers made just 17% from the floor in the second half, going a combined 6-for-34. Despite the cold shooting, TC3 still enjoyed a lead until the Vikings tied the score at 41-41 with 6:40 left in the game. A three-pointer by Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) gave the lead back to the home team, but Hudson Valley continued to rally, taking the lead with a pair of free throws at 50-49 with 2:35 on the clock. Several missed chances over the next two minutes left the Panthers down 52-49 before Nicole Goodwin (Newfield H.S./Newfield) sank a pair of free throw to pull the score within one at 52-51 with 42 seconds left. Hudson Valley pushed the lead back to two with another free throw, but TC3 wasn’t able to capitalize on the next possession, turning the ball back over to the Vikings. Hudson Valley sank two more free throws with 6.7 seconds left to seal the win.
TC3 was done in by a combination of poor second-half shooting and a huge discrepancy at the free throw line. After a solid first half, the Panthers finished the game making just 28% from the field. At the line, TC3 took 16 shots for the game, making 10. By comparison, Hudson Valley took 36 free throws, making 25. In the second half alone, Hudson Valley took 22 free throws, compared to just six for the home team.
Bowman ended the game as the lone Panther in double figures scoring, netting 12 points to go with four rebounds, four steals, and two assists. After scoring five points in the opening three minutes, Forehand finished with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Jaquela Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) had seven points, nine rebounds, and two steals. Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had a team-high 12 rebounds. Kern finished the game with seven points.
TC3 is off for the winter break. The Panthers return to action January 7 at Finger Lakes Community College.
