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.
