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.

Coaching Changes for TC3 Basketball

June 20, 2014

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.”

2010, 2013, 2014

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.

The season came to an end Tuesday for the TC3 women's basketball team as the Panthers lost at Onondaga Community College, 89-30. TC3 ends the year with a record of 6-19 overall and 1-11 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Onondaga Community College is now 20-7 overall and 8-4 in the MSAC.
 
Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) finished a fantastic freshman season with a 12-point performance. The guard led the team in rebounds with five. Sophomore Nicole Reid (Southern Cayuga H.S./Aurora) closed out her TC3 career by scoring 11 points, grabbing three rebounds, and swiping a pair of steals.


Panthers Fall in Home Finale
Boxscore

Monday, February 18, 2008

The TC3 women closed out its home season Monday, falling to Corning Community College 71-62. TC3 is now 6-18 overall and 1-10 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference with one game left in the season. The Panthers close out the season Tuesday at Onondaga Community College. With the win Corning improves to 9-17 overall and 4-7 in the MSAC.
 
The start was promising for the Panthers. A pair of Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) three-pointers got the home team off to a strong start and an early 8-2 lead. Corning answered with a 7-0 run to take the lead. The lead changed hands six times before Corning scored seven straight midway through the half to take a 26-19 lead. The margin stood at eight heading into the half.
 
A three-pointer by Nicole Reid (Southern Cayuga H.S./Aurora) and a jumper by Iler to open the second half brought the Panthers to within three at 34-31, but Corning stemmed the tide with a three-pointer to push the lead back to six. Another three from Iler brought the Panthers again within three, but Corning answered by scoring six of the next eight to push the spread to seven at 43-36 with 15:29 left to play. A 10-2 run by TC3, with Reid scoring all ten TC3 points, gave the Panthers lead at 46-45 with 11:05 to play. The lead grew to three, but Corning quickly responded to reclaim the advantage. Despite pressure from the Panthers, the visitors held the lead the rest of the way.
 
Iler led the Panthers in scoring, pouring in 22 points while sinking five three-pointers. Reid scored 20 points while going 10 of 12 from the free throw line. She also pulled down a team-high nine rebounds.
 
Corning was led by Jessica Lieb's 22 points.


Panthers Cold on Cold Night
Boxscore

Monday, February 11, 2008

The TC3 women's offense matched the frigid weather outside as the Panthers lost to Jefferson Community College 50-38 in Watertown Monday. The loss drops TC3 to 6-17 overall and 1-9 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Jefferson improves to 4-16 overall and 1-9 in the MSAC.
 
In a game that was originally scheduled for last week but postponed due to the weather, TC3's offense appeared to be under the weather. The Panthers managed just 16 points in the first half, but managed to enter the break tied with the home team. A slightly better second half on the offensive end wasn't enough as the Panthers lost for the seventh straight time.
 
Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin) was the only Panther to reach double figures, scoring 14 points.
 
TC3 is home Wednesday against Corning Community College. It is the final home game of the season for the Panthers.


Panthers Fall to Nation's Number One
Boxscore

Saturday, February 09, 2008

The top team in the nation proved to be too much for the TC3 women's basketball team Saturday as the Panthers lost to Broome Community College 94-52. The loss drops TC3 to 6-15 overall and 1-7 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome improves to 22-1 overall and 8-1 in the MSAC.
 
The game opened with Broome making seven of its first ten shots while racing to a 15-0 lead just four minutes into the game. The Panthers broke onto the board with a three-pointer by Jenn Iler (Owego Free Academy/Apalachin), but Broome continued to shoot well, making 64% from the floor while pushing the lead to 31 at the break. The second half saw Broome cool off from the floor, but the Panthers couldn't make a run to close the gap.
 
Iler led the home team with 17 points, including 14 in the first half. She made four three-pointers on the afternoon, giving her 43 for the season. With her first basket from behind the arc, Iler became the most prolific long-range shooter in any TC3 women's basketball season, passing Laura Thomas's 39 three-pointers during the 2002-03 season.
 
Nicole Reid (Southern Cayuga H.S./Aurora) added 11 points. Tasha Chamberlain (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) pulled down a team-best 11 rebounds.
 
Broome's Aimee Kellicutt led all scorers with 24 points. Brittany Finkle added 16 and Karli Hodack tallied ten.
 
TC3 plays at Jefferson Community College Monday.
