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.

The upcoming basketball season at Tompkins Cortland Community College will have some familiar faces in unfamiliar places. Director of Athletics Mick McDaniel has announced that David Stevenson has been appointed the head women's basketball coach and Rich Echevarria has been appointed the head men’s basketball coach. Stevenson has been the head men’s basketball coach for the past nine seasons; Echevarria has been one of his assistant coaches for the past three years.
Stevenson takes over the women’s program for Jaclyn Sutton, who stepped down after four years. Assistant coach Jeff Riker will remain on the women’s coaching staff; assistant coach Brian Carroll will remain with the men’s team.
"Coach Stevenson has proven to be one of the top coaches in our region, and I have every confidence that he will enjoy the same success with the women’s program that he had with the men’s,” said McDaniel. "Coach Echevarria is a fantastic recruiter and is dedicated to continuing the winning and sportsmanlike ways that are now synonymous with TC3 athletics. I fully expect great things for both programs."
Stevenson is the most successful basketball coach in TC3 history. He took over a men’s program that had one winning season in its first 29 seasons and turned it into a consistent regional contender. His teams made the postseason five times, including the last three seasons. TC3 won three Mid-State Athletic Conference championships, including the last two, and Stevenson was named the MSAC Coach of the Year three times. He won more games (123) than all the other men’s basketball coaches in TC3 history combined, and is the only men’s basketball coach in College history with a winning percentage (.519).
"I'm very excited to take on the challenge of moving the women’s program forward," said Stevenson. "I’m equally excited to leave the men’s program to a former player and coach."
Echevarria is a former player at TC3 and a graduate of the College’s sport management program. He has coached on the AAU level and a various college camps, and has been an assistant on Stevenson’s bench during the best three-year run in program history. During his time with the Panthers, TC3 has a .675 winning percentage (54-26) and captured two straight conference titles. Those three years also saw the Panthers produce an all-American, four all-region selections, a two-time conference player of the year, and six all-conference selections.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to continue the tradition that has been started with Coach Stevenson,” said Echevarria. “I will work to build our student-athletes up to the best they can be, and prepare them to move to a four-year school, both on the court and academically.”
The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team closed out the 2013-14 season Wednesday on a positive note, beating Corning Community College 65-54. The win is the second straight for TC3, with both coming against teams heading into the playoffs. TC3 ends the season with a 6-16 overall and 4-8 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning is 8-16 overall and 5-7 in the MSAC. The Red Barons qualified for the four-team MSAC playoffs as the fourth seed. TC3 finished the year fifth in the MSAC.
The Panthers trailed most of the first half, with Corning jumping out to an 11-4 lead early on. TC3 chipped away, eventually taking a 22-21 lead into halftime.
The Red Barons opened the second half with a run that pushed the visitors into the lead at 32-28. TC3 responded with five straight points, taking the lead on a pair of free throws by Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden). The rally continued, eventually building the lead to 11 points after a pair of three-pointers by Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) made the score 47-36 with 9:40 left on the clock. The home team held a lead at or above seven points the rest of the way, sealing the win despite going just 4-of-11 from the free throw line in the second half.
Bowman led the Panthers with 15 points, four assists, six rebounds, and seven steals. Ordway and Jaquella Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) each scored 14 points, with Lockwood registering a double-double with 11 rebounds along with three assists and three steals. Ordway pulled down eight boards and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) poured in 11 points and handed out four assists.

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.

The TC3 women's basketball team saved its best for last, playing a solid all-around game to win its season finale, 77-60, over Corning Community College Saturday. TC3 finishes the season 11-17 overall and 4-10 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning falls to 10-17 overall and 6-8 in the conference.
The Panthers never trailed in the game, scoring the first nine points before Corning finally got on the board after five minutes of play. The lead grew to 15 at 19-4 less than eight minutes into the game, thanks in large part to hot shooting by sophomores Stacy Skrivan (Maine-Endwell HS/Endwell) and Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora). After Corning closed the gap to 12, TC3 used a 15-6 run to close the half with a 46-24 lead.
The Panthers picked up the second half where they left off in the first, scoring the first four points to stretch the lead to 50-24. The lead would stay between 20 and 28 the rest of the way until Corning pulled within 17 in the final moments.
Just five Panthers scored, but four reached double figures. Orman led all scorers with 27 points, including 17 in the first half. She completed the double-double with 12 rebounds. Skrivan just missed a triple-double, pumping in 19, including 15 in the first half, to go with 9 rebounds and 9 assists. Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) poured in 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists, while sophomore Kim Colombo (Port Byron HS/Port Byron) added 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists.
It was the final game of the TC3 career for five players: Colombo, Orman, Skrivan, Maranda Kinsman (Marathon HS/Marathon), and the injured Jolene Phillips (Marathon HS/Marathon).

On the night Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) became TC3 single-season scoring record holder, the Panthers fell short against a hot-shooting Broome Community College team, losing 84-68. TC3 falls to 3-10 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 10-17 overall. Broome clinched the MSAC regular season title with the win, improving to 12-1 in conference and 22-5 overall.
The game started with Broome running to an early seven-point lead before TC3 started to rally, led by Sutton. With 14:30 left in the first half, Sutton sank her second basket of the night, a jumper in the lane, to bring the Panthers to within three at 15-12. The basket also gave her 424 points on the season, moving her past Jaime Fisher (422 points set in 2003-04) into first place in the TC3 record book. The rally continued until TC3 took the lead at 18-17. The teams would trade baskets, with TC3's biggest lead coming at 23-20, until Broome's hot shooting caught up with the Panthers, taking the lead for good at 30-29 with 6:54 left in the first half. Broome scored the next five points as part of an 17-10 run to close the first half, giving the Hornets to the halftime lead of 47-39, thanks in large part to nine first-half three pointers
The second half started with TC3 scoring a free throw in the opening seconds before Broome used a 13-0 run to pull away. TC3 finally broke the run with a pair of baskets with just under 15 minutes to play, but couldn't get within 15 the rest of the way.
Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora) led TC3 with 26 points while Sutton finished the night with 18 points. Stacy Skrivan (Maine-Endwell HS/Endwell) scored 9 points while grabbing 10 boards.
TC3 closes out the season Saturday at home vs. Corning Community College at 1:00 p.m.

The TC3 women's basketball team gave the region's fifth-ranked team a scare Tuesday night before falling to Jefferson Community College 65-51. TC3 is now 3-9 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 10-16 overall. Jefferson is 19-4 overall and 9-2 in conference. Jefferson clinched a spot in the MSAC Final Four with the win.
TC3 led much of the first half, taking a 24-15 lead with one minute to play in the half before Jefferson used a 6-0 run to close the gap to 24-21 at the break. Jefferson tied the game with a three-pointer on the first possession of the second half, only to have TC3 retake the lead at 26-24. The lead was short-lived, as Jefferson tied the game at 26-26 before taking the lead on a free throw with 18:21 left to play. TC3 kept it close until Jefferson used a 17-2 run to stretch a two-point lead to a 52-35 bulge with eight minutes to play. Jefferson controlled play the rest of the way.
Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora) led TC3 with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) finished with 12 points and Stacy Skrivan (Maine-Endwell HS/Endwell) added 11 points and 12 rebounds.
TC3 hosts Broome Community College Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 12, 2005
Foul trouble that left the TC3 women's basketball team with just three players on the court to end the game was a major contributor in TC3's loss at Finger Lakes Community College Saturday. After leading at the half, the Panthers lost 63-55 to fall to 4-7 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 10-15 overall. Finger Lakes improves to 16-8 overall and 5-6 in conference.
The Panthers were on course to avenge the 22-point defeat suffered to Finger Lakes last month, taking a 31-29 lead into the half, but serious foul trouble cost the team dearly in the second half. With six minutes left in the game, TC3 lost its third player to fouls, forcing the Panthers to play with just four players. The shortage worsened with two minutes to play when another TC3 player fouled, leaving the team to finish with just three players. It was the first time this season more than one Panther fouled out of a game.
Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora) posted a double-double before fouling out, scoring a game-high 23 points while pulling down 10 rebounds. Stacy Skrivan (Maine-Endwell HS/Endwell), another casualty of fouls, also notched a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds while dishing out a team-high 5 assists. Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) scored 12 points and had 7 rebounds before she fouled out.
TC3 hosts MSAC-leading Jefferson Community College Tuesday. Tip-off is at 6:00 p.m.
Thursday, February 10, 2005
After rallying back from an 11-point second-half deficit to take a lead with just eight seconds left, a basket with two seconds left sent the TC3 women's basketball team to a 65-64 defeat Thursday at Cayuga Community College. The loss snapped TC3's three-game winning streak and dropped the Panthers to 3-7 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 10-14 overall. Cayuga is now 5-5 in conference and 15-8 overall.
The Panthers trailed the entire way, including 31-22 at the half, until a rally over the final three minutes. Trailing by nine, the Panthers came storming back with strong defensive pressure, pulling to within one with 19 seconds left. After missing a shot on the baseline, Meghan Orman (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora) grabbed her own rebound and converted to give TC3 the lead at 64-63 with eight seconds left. Cayuga pushed the ball up court and, after nearly turning the ball over, was able to sink a jumper from 15 feet with 2.5 seconds left. It took two seconds before TC3 could get a timeout, leaving the Panthers without enough time for a game-winning shot.
Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) led all scorers with 25 points, including a TC3-record 16 from the foul line. Orman finished with 15 points and 15 rebounds and Stacy Skrivan (Maine-Endwell HS/Endwell) added 10 points and 11 rebounds. As a team, TC3 made 27 of 31 free throws.
TC3 travels to Finger Lakes Community College Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. game.

A 7-0 run early in the second half gave the TC3 women's basketball team a lead they would hold the rest of the way as the Panthers beat Onondaga Community College 62-53 Tuesday. The Panthers are now 3-6 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 10-13 overall. The loss drops Onondaga to 17-5 overall and 6-2 in the MSAC.
The first half saw eight lead changes, the last coming as part of Onondaga's 6-0 run to close the half and take a 26-23 lead into the break.

Playing against an upper division team for the first time this season, the TC3 women's basketball team proved to be up to the challenge, posting a 69-59 win over Jamestown Community College-Cattaraugus Saturday. TC3, a non-scholarship division III team, improves to 3-3 while Jamestown-Cattaraugus, a division II team (can offer athletic scholarships) falls to 4-1.
A slow start for both teams led to a low scoring opening first few minutes. TC3 got on track first, taking a small lead in the opening minutes before Cattaraugus came back to take a seven point lead ten minutes into the game. The Panthers rallied from down 16-9 to take a 32-27 lead into the break.
TC3 lead all but a few seconds of the second half, but could never put the Jaguars away. TC3 extended the halftime lead to eight points in the opening minutes, taking a 40-32 advantage with 16 minutes left, but just when it looked like TC3 might put the game away, Cattaraugus came storming back. Using an 11-2 run, the Jaguars took a 43-42 lead as the clock showed 11 minutes left in the game. TC3 finally put together some offensive, re-taking the lead moments later on a pair of quick buckets. The lead would hover between five and seven points for the next eight minutes until a late Cattaraugus charge made things interesting in the closing minutes.
After TC3 missed a free throw with 1:22 left, Cattaraugus drained a three-pointer to cut the lead to four at 63-59 with 1:09. The comeback attempt would get no closer, as Nicole McDonald (Edison HS/Elmira) scored a crucial bucket to push the lead back to six. Another basket and a pair of free throws gave TC3 its biggest lead of the game as the final horn sounded.
TC3's post players had spectacular games. Christina Bourlier (Phoenix HS/Pennellville) scored a career-high 24 points on near perfect shooting, making 6-of-8 from the field and 12-of-13 from the free throw line.

The home opener for the TC3 women's basketball team proved to be an exciting contest with a disappointing conclusion for the home fans as the Panthers fell to SUNY Cobleskill 68-60. The loss drops TC3 to 2-3 while Cobleskill, ranked fourth in the region, improves to 5-0.
The game opened with TC3 taking an early lead. Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) nailed a three-pointer to start the Panthers on a game-opening 11-4 run. Cobleskill would come back to within three before TC3 pushed it back to seven at 18-11 with just under 13 minutes left in the first half. At that point, Cobleskill went on a 20-4 run to take its biggest lead of the half at 31-22. TC3 responded with a late rally to end the half trailing 33-30.
Cobleskill's lead would hold until a pair of Sutton baskets put TC3 ahead 40-39 with 13 minutes left in the game. Cobleskill went back on top 90 seconds later and started to pull away, stretching the gap to ten points at 59-49 with 5:22 left. With TC3 dealing with foul trouble, the Panthers managed to cut the lead in half over the next minute, and closed to one at 59-58 with 2:47 left in the game. After forcing turnovers on consecutive possessions, the Panthers were in position to move ahead, but missed the opportunity as both offensive trips turned up empty. The misses turned out to be costly as, moments later with just under two minutes left, a third Panther fouled out of the game and TC3 was called for a technical for disputing the call. Cobleskill made all four foul shots, moving ahead 63-58, and retained the ball. A TC3 steal on the next possession gave the fans hope, but the Panthers were unable to get closer the rest of the way.
Terra Strickland (Candor HS/Candor) led a balanced attack with 15 points, 7 steals, 4 assists, and 4 rebounds. Stacy Skrivan (Maine Endwell HS/Endwell) and Christina Bourlier (Phoenix HS/Pennellville) each scored 11 points and Nicole McDonald (Edison HS/Elmira) added 10.
