TC3 Volleyball Comes Up Just Short Twice

Saturday, September 20, 2014

TC3 volleyball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College volleyball team came up just short twice on Saturday, ultimately going 0-3 on the day against Mohawk Valley Community College, Herkimer College, and Fulton-Montgomery Community College. The home losses drop TC3’s record to 1-9 overall and 0-7 in Region III contests.

In the opener against Mohawk Valley, TC3 won the first two sets, 25-23 and 26-24, but couldn’t put the match away. The visiting Hawks rallied to win the final three sets, 25-19, 25-16, and 15-8. Shay Washington (Newfield H.S./Ithaca) and Jess Meyer (New Roots H.S./Dryden) each had seven kills with Meyer also pulling out nine digs. Brooke Torrey (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had 18 assists.

The second match saw the Panthers drop the opening set, 25-20, before taking the next two, 27-25 and 25-18. But like the first match, TC3 was unable to finish the job, losing the fourth set 25-12 and then dropping the fifth 15-13. Kasey Price (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) led the attack with ten kills and five blocks, while Elisabeth Olcott (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) had eight kills. Valerie Sjoblom (Waverly H.S./Waverly) had a team-best ten assists.

The day’s final match came against a strong Fulton-Montgomery team. The Panthers fell in straight sets, 25-8, 25-17, and 25-12, with Price recording five kills and Torrey handing out five assists.

TC3 returns to the court Wednesday at home against Onondaga Community College. The match starts at 6 p.m.

TC3 Season Ends with Playoff Loss

Tuesday, October 26, 2004

The TC3 volleyball season came to an end Tuesday, as the Panthers lost in the first round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. TC3 dropped an exciting five game match at Fulton-Montgomery Community College. TC3 was the #10 seed; Fulton-Montgomery the #7 seed. TC3 ends the season with a record of 14-15.
 
TC3, which beat Fulton-Montgomery during the regular season, started slowly, dropping the opening game 30-18. Game two went to the Panthers, 30-17, before TC3 fell behind in game three. Trailing 28-24, Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) brought TC3 back into a tie with four straight aces, giving the Panthers the momentum they needed to take a 33-31 win. Fulton-Montgomery fought back to take game four, 30-27, before winning the decisive game five, 15-6.
 
Salinas had a huge night, setting a TC3 single match record with 17 blocks and tying another record with 17 kills. She also led the squad with five aces. Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer), Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton), and Page Anderson (Homer HS/Cortland) each had big dig totals, with 41, 26, and 23, respectively. Anderson added eight kills and three blocks. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) had 21 assists, giving her 369 for her career, the second best career total in TC3 history.
 
As a team, TC3 set new season records in nearly every statistical category, including aces, kills, digs, blocks, and assists. It was the first time since 1992 that the team qualified for the NJCAA tournament, and the first time since 1996 the team made the conference playoffs.


Panthers Fall in MSAC Final Four

Saturday, October 23, 2004

The first postseason appearance in a decade was short one for the TC3 volleyball team, as the Panthers dropped a 3-0 decision to Broome Community College in the Mid-State Athletic Conference semifinal. TC3 is now 14-14.
 
TC3, the #4 seed, lost to #1 seed Broome by scores of 30-21, 30-17, and 30-25. Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) led the attack with nine kills and four aces. Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) had 14 digs and 2 aces and Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer) had 16 digs. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) dished out 14 assists.
 
TC3 now must wait until Sunday night to find out if they will receive an invitation to the NJCAA Region III tournament. If the Panthers make the tournament, they will open play Tuesday.


Panthers Drop Regular Season Finale

Thursday, October 21, 2004

The Panthers dropped the regular season finale Thursday, losing to the #2-ranked team in the nation. TC3 lost to Mohawk Valley Community College 3-0 to fall to 14-13 on the season. Mohawk Valley improves to 25-0.
 
TC3 struggled the first two games before finally challenging Mohawk Valley in the third. TC3 lost the first two 30-17 and 30-9, and then led much of the final game before losing 30-25. Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) led the way with 10 blocks and 5 kills. Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer) and Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) had 23 and 17 digs, respectively.
 
TC3 will play #1 seed Broome Community College in the semifinal round of the Mid-State Athletic Conference Final Four Saturday in Binghamton. The Panthers are also eligible to earn an invitation to participate in next week's NJCAA Region III Tournament. Seedings for the regionals will be announced Sunday evening.


Panthers Clinch Winning Regular Season

Tuesday, October 19, 2004

The TC3 volleyball team secured a winning regular season with a 3-0 win over Morrisville State Tuesday. The Panthers are now 14-12 with one regular season match left. Morrisville State is 3-19.
 
Thanks in part to erratic serving by TC3, each game was close with the Panthers winning 30-26, 30-28, and 30-27. Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) had another big night with 12 kills, 7 blocks, and 2 aces. Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) and Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer) led the defense with 17 and 15 digs, respectively. Chelsea Newton (Peru HS/Morrisonville) added six kills, five blocks, and three digs. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) directed the offense with 13 assists.
 
TC3 finishes the regular season Thursday at the number two-ranked team in the nation, Mohawk Valley Community College.

Panthers' Win Streak Snapped

Sunday, October 03, 2004

TC3's five-match winning streak came to an end Sunday with an uninspired 3-1 loss to Herkimer County Community College. The loss drops TC3 to 12-9, while Herkimer improves to 4-13.
 
After dominating play in game one, it seemed as though TC3 was on the way to another win. The Panthers opened play winning the first six points behind the strong serving of Chelsea Newton (Peru HS/Morrisonville) and never looked back. TC3's lead never fell below five points, and grew to ten at 19-9. Herkimer cut it to eight at 25-19 before TC3 finished the game by winning the final five points.
 
As much as TC3 dominated game one, Herkimer returned the favor in game two as TC3 led just once, at 2-1, en route to a 30-23 defeat. Herkimer used a 12-1 run to stretch a 6-5 lead to 18-6 and the Panthers could get no closer than six the rest of the way.
 
Game three saw another Herkimer run to break open the game early. After TC3 scored the first two points, Herkimer scored 12 of the next 15 to lead 12-5. TC3 rallied to close within five at 15-10, but could get no closer. Herkimer closed the game with an 11-1 run to make the final 30-15.
 
With their backs to the wall, TC3 came out strong in game four. Herkimer scored the first point before TC3 stormed to an 8-3 lead. Herkimer slowly came back, eventually tying the game at 19-19. A big block by Newton and three strong serves from Page Anderson (Homer HS/Cortland) made it 23-19 and seemed to give TC3 the momentum. But any momentum was short-lived, as, after trading points, Herkimer scored seven straight to move to a 28-24 lead. TC3 closed to 29-27, but couldn't get any closer, losing 30-27.
 
Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) had another big outing, tying her TC3 record with 11 blocks to go with 7 kills. Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer) registered 36 digs and Newton finished with 5 kills, 4 aces, and 3 blocks. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) had 18 assists and 2 aces.
 
TC3 travels to Onondaga Community College Thursday at 7 PM.


Panthers Sweep Regional Power

Friday, October 01, 2004

A record-setting performance helped the TC3 volleyball team to its fifth straight win, a 3-0 victory over regional-power Fulton-Montgomery Community College Friday. With the win, TC3 improves to 12-8, while the loss drops Fulton-Montgomery, a team ranked in the top 20 in the nation earlier this year, to 10-8.
 
The Panthers took the match by scores of 30-23, 34-32, and 30-25. Game one started with TC3 jumping ahead 7-1. The lead would get no smaller than 5 points and would grow to as much as 11 points at 25-14 before the Panthers put it away. Game two, however, was a different story.
 
The second game was a classic, tightly played contest the entire way. TC3 scored the first two points of the game, before Fulton-Montgomery came back to tie it at 2-2. From that point on, the teams would trade the lead with neither team leading by more than three points. The play intensified towards the end, with both teams able to fight off game-points. Perhaps the most dramatic set of points came with Fulton-Montgomery up 31-30. With the chance to win, a FMCC kill shot was just wide, tying the game at 31-31. After breaking TC3's serve, Fulton-Montgomery again was serving for the win, but a service error knotted the score at 32-32. After another long rally, Theresa Eanetta (Newfield HS/Newfield) made a spectacular diving dig, with the ball just making it over the net and falling for a point. After a Fulton-Montgomery time out, Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) came through with a big serve, giving TC3 the win, 34-32.
 
TC3 looked to have game three in control, taking a seven-point lead at 11-4. After holding that lead at 13-6, TC3 saw Fulton-Montgomery cut the lead to four, 20-16, before going on a 5-0 run to take its first lead of the game, 21-20. After breaking serve following a long rally, Eanetta reeled off four service points, including an ace, to make it 25-21. Fulton-Montgomery would rally to get within one at 26-25, but Nickie Calale (Homer HS/Homer) calmly served out the game and the match.
 
Andrea Salinas (Carthage HS/Fort Drum) led a strong front-line defensive effort, setting a new TC3 record with 11 blocks and helping the team to a new TC3 team record of 18 blocks. She added 10 kills, while fellow hitter Chelsea Newton (Peru HS/Morrisonville) collected 6 kills and 5 blocks. Katie Balshuweit (Owego Free Academy/Owego) had a personal-best 27 assists, just missing setting a new TC3 single game record.

Against Onondaga, TC3 posted wins of 30-12, 30-28, and 30-27.

Sarah Stoeckel (Chenango Forks/Binghamton) had 34 digs and Theresa Eannetta (Newfield/Newfield) handed out 14 assists.
 
In the final match of pool play, TC3 fell to eventual tournament champion Alfred State 21-30, 30-27, 22-30. Calale again led the defense with 47 digs while Page Anderson (Homer/Cortland) had 4 aces. The loss left TC3 2-1 in pool play, good enough to advance to the quarterfinals.
 
In the quarterfinals each match was a best two-out-of-three contest, with the deciding game going to 15. TC3 took on the host school, beating Corning Community College 30-18, 25-30, 15-5. Newton had a solid match, posting six aces and four kills. Calale recorded 36 digs while Salinas pounded out 5 kills.
 
The win put TC3 into the semifinals against Monroe Community College. Playing their fifth match of the day, the Panthers showed fatigue in falling in two games, 30-8 and 30-25. Calale and Stanton each had fine defensive efforts, recording 27 and 15 digs, respectively. Salinas led the offense with five kills.
