Panthers Beat Region's #1

Thursday, October 20, 2005

The TC3 volleyball team ended the regular season on a high note with a win over the region's top-ranked team Thursday, beating SUNY Cobleskill 3-1. TC3 is now 16-10 overall. Cobleskill, ranked #1 in the region and #9 nationally, is now 19-4.
 
The match opened with the visitors taking game one 30-21, thanks to a 10-3 run to close the game. Game two saw TC3 use a 9-2 run to break open a game that had been tied 8-8. TC3's advantage remained between four and seven points the rest of the way, and when Kelsey Muka (Lansing HS/Lansing) served the final seven points of the game, the Panthers had a 30-17 victory.
 
To start game three, the Panthers picked up where they left off at the end of game two. TC3 led the entire way, with the exception of a tie at 5-5, until a rally by Cobleskill provided some late-game dramatics. With TC3 leading 26-23, Cobleskill scored five straight to lead 28-26. Needing to stop the Cobleskill run, TC3 did just that, breaking Cobleskill's serve and scoring three straight to make it 29-28. After a Cobleskill timeout, the visitors earned a side-out to tie the game at 29-29. A Muka kill on the next point made it 30-29, setting the stage for Amanda Christofferson (Dryden HS/Dryden) to win the game. Serving at game point, Christofferson fired a serve that caught the net and fell over for an ace and a 31-29 TC3 win.
 
The decisive game four started as the previous two had, with TC3 holding an edge early. The lead grew to six points at 15-9 before Cobleskill went on a run and tied the game at 15-15. After trading points, TC3 responded with a three-point rally and held a two or three point lead until Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) served out the last six points to close out a 30-21 TC3 win.
 
Muka led the attack with 11 kills, 9 blocks, and 6 aces. Christofferson set a new TC3 record with 36 assists and Alicia Fultz (Dundee HS/Dundee) anchored the defense with 37 digs. Christina Griffin (Cortland HS/Cortland) finished with 18 digs and 11 kills and Chelsea Newton (Peru HS/Morrisonville) added 9 kills.
 
TC3 is next in action at the MSAC Final Four Saturday at Broome Community College.

Loss Snaps TC3 Win Streak at Four

Thursday, October 06, 2005

The TC3 volleyball team's four-match winning streak came to an end Thursday as the Panthers fell to Onondaga Community College 3-1. The loss was the first conference defeat for TC3 and means the Panthers will be the #2 seed in the upcoming Mid-State Athletic Conference tournament. TC3 is now 12-5 overall and 4-1 in the MSAC. Onondaga won the regular season title with the win, improving to 5-0 in the MSAC and 16-12 overall.
 
The Panthers looked out-of-sync early, dropping the opening game 30-14. Game two was close from the start, with neither team leading by more than four points until Onondaga used a 6-0 run to take a 24-28 lead. The spread remained six points after both team scored a pair, setting up a dramatic rally for the Panthers. Trailing 26-20, TC3 chipped a point off the lead by scoring three of the next five points to make it 28-23. After breaking Onondaga's serve, Kelsey Muka (Lansing HS/Lansing) won four straight points, tying the game at 28-28. After Onondaga broke service, the visitors missed out on game point with a service error. A TC3 service error put the home team a point away from defeat at 29-30, but the Panthers won a long rally to tie the game, then cashed in on two more long rallies to post the 32-30 win.
 
The momentum the Panthers gained by winning game two carried over to the early stages of game three, as TC3 jumped to a 7-0 lead. The margin stayed between seven and nine points most of the game, with TC3 seemingly poised to put the game away with a 26-18 lead when Onondaga rallied. A 5-0 run made it 26-23, and after TC3 scored to make it 27-23, Onondaga answered with two more to make it 27-25. A TC3 point made it 28-25, but a service error by the Panthers gave Onondaga the serve trailing 28-26. TC3 took the next point to move ahead 29-26, but a service error by TC3 started a string of three points for Onondaga as the visitors pulled even at 29-29. A TC3 point gave the Panthers another game point at 30-29, but Onondaga responded to tie it at 30-30. After taking back the lead at 31-30, TC3 again failed to capitalize on a game point as Onondaga scored the next three points to complete the comeback.
 
Game four belonged to Onondaga, as the Lazers scored the first three points and never trailed or were tied the rest of the way, building a 29-18 lead before a TC3 rally made the final 30-24.
 
Muka finished with 13 kills, 10 digs, 9 digs, 4 assists, and 3 aces. Amanda Christofferson (Dryden HS/Dryden) tied a TC3 record with 29 assists while Christina Griffin (Cortland HS/Cortland) and Lindsey Horton (Candor HS/Candor) each added 9 kills. Alicia Fultz (Dundee HS/Dundee) finished with 36 digs.
 
TC3 has a big weekend ahead. On Saturday, the Panthers travel to Utica to take part in a tri-match involving Mohawk Valley Community College and Monroe Community. On Sunday, TC3 hosts Fulton-Montgomery Community College at 1:00 p.m. All three of TC3's opponents this weekend are ranked in the top five in Region III.

Volleyball Beats Broome for Fifth Straight Win

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

The TC3 volleyball team won its fifth straight match Tuesday, beating Broome Community College 3-1 in a Mid-State Athletic Conference contest. The Panthers are now 7-2 overall, 7-0 in Region III, and 3-0 in the MSAC. With just two conference matches left, the win clinched a spot in the MSAC Final Four for the Panthers. Broome falls to 0-5 overall and 0-2 in the MSAC.
 
The first game was a see-saw affair that saw the score tied 15 times before Broome put together a run of three points to take a 25-22 lead. The Panther rallied back behind a spectacular dig by Lindsey Horton (Candor HS/Candor) and a kill by Amanda Christofferson (Dryden HS/Dryden) to re-tie the game at 25-25. After the two teams traded points, Broome scored three straight to take a 29-26 lead en route to the 30-27 win.
 
Game two was drastically different, with TC3 taking control early with an 8-2 run. The Panthers led by as many as 14 as they cruised to the 30-19 win. Any momentum gained by the win was quickly lost in game three, though, as Broome jumped out to a 4-0 lead and held the advantage until TC3 tied the game at 10-10. The teams traded the lead until Broome used a 5-0 run to pull ahead 23-18. The Panthers finally broke the Broome run and chipped away until Alicia Fultz (Dundee HS/Dundee) came to serve trailing 21-24. Five serves later, the Panthers had a 26-24 lead, and never looked back, taking the game 30-25 as Kelsey Muka (Lansing HS/Lansing) powered home a pair of impressive kills to seal the win.
 
The fourth game provided fans with several long rallies, including one that saw Christofferson make a diving save of a blocked ball that was heading toward the bench, bumping the ball over her head towards the net where Muka jumped and made a kill while twisting in mid-air. That point gave TC3 a 13-9 lead, its biggest of the game to that point. After Broome cut the lead to 13-12, the Panthers won another long rally and went on a 9-2 run to take control of the game. The lead grew to eight at 22-14 on another Muka kill, and stayed above five the rest of the way. The winning point in the 30-23 victory came on an ace by Muka.
 
Muka finished with 15 kills, two short of the TC3 single-match record, 9 blocks, 6 digs, and 2 aces. Christofferson just missed a double double with 17 assists and 9 kills, along with a team-high 6 aces. Fultz ended with 24 digs and Barbara Naylor (Dundee HS/Dundee) chipped in with 6 blocks.

Saturday, September 03, 2005

The TC3 volleyball team improved to 4-0 in Region III play with a sweep of Morrisville State and Alfred State Saturday at a tri-match in Dryden. The Panthers won their opening match against Morrisville State College, 2-0, before topping Alfred State College 2-0. TC3 is now 4-2 overall and 4-0 in Region III. Alfred State beat Morrisville State 2-0 in the day's other action. Morrisville is now 0-2 while Alfred State stands at 3-3.
 
In the opening match against Morrisville State the Panthers jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, cruising to a 30-14 win. In game two, an early burst saw the Panthers more from a 4-4 tie to take a 10-5 lead. After a short Morrisville rally made it 10-9, TC3 broke the Mustangs serve, and then saw Christina Griffin (Cortland HS/Cortland) rip off five-straight service points to make it 16-9. From there, the Panthers stretched the lead to double-digits, winning 30-18.
 
Kelsey Muka (Lansing HS/Lansing) ripped nine aces and pounded out seven kills to lead the team. Amanda Christofferson (Dryden HS/Dryden) had 13 assists and Alicia Fultz (Dundee HS/Dundee) recorded a team-high 10 digs.
 
Against Alfred State, the two teams traded the lead three times before TC3 used a 10-4 run to turn a 14-14 tie into a 24-18 advantage. Alfred rallied to pull back to within three at 25-22 before a kill by Muka ended the run. Game one ended with back-to-back big plays by Barbara Naylor (Dundee HS/Dundee), recording a kill for point 29 and a block for the game point.
 
Game two was another see-saw game, this time with Alfred pulling to an early five-point lead before TC3 came back to tie the game at 17-17. After another tie at 18-18, Alfred took a 20-18 lead, but the Panthers again rallied, scoring the next five point to lead 23-20. With Alfred threatening to tie the game again, Fultz came up big with return of service for a winner, making it 24-22. Three strong serves by Amber Stanton (Walton HS/Walton) made it 27-22, finally giving TC3 some breathing room. After Alfred broke the serve, Muka recorded a resounding kill to make it 28-23, and then served out the game for the win.
 
Muka finished with a team-high six blocks, eight digs, four kills, and five aces. Christofferson had 14 assists, while Lindsey Horton (Candor HS/Candor) added 9 digs and 4 kills.
