TC3 Men's Basketball Wins Conference Title
February 21, 2010
The best season in the history of men's basketball at Tompkins Cortland Community College got even better Sunday. The Panthers, already the Mid-State Athletic Conference regular-season champions, added the conference tournament title with a 95-76 win over Broome Community College. TC3 improves to 20-5 while Broome drops to 17-10.
The game opened with Michael Martin (Spencer-Van Etten H.S./Spencer) draining a three-pointer for the first points. After Broome took a 6-5 lead, TC3 scored seven straight, capped by another three-pointer by Martin to lead 12-6 five minutes into the game. After Broome came back to pull within one at 16-15, TC3 slowly began to pull away, moving to a 31-26 advantage with 5:14 left in the half. An 11-1 run, powered by a pair of three-pointers by Chris Cartwright (Binghamton H.S./Binghamton) and another three from Greg Mudge (Hunter-Tannersville H.S./Hunter), put TC3 up 42-27 before Broome scored the final seven points of the half to make it 42-34 at the break.
The second half saw TC3 control the lead the entire way, starting to pull away in the middle of the half. A pair of free throws and a three-point play from Cartwright put the lead at 65-50 before a 7-2 run gave the home team an 18-point cushion. The margin hovered within a few points of 20 the rest of the way, peaking at 25 points before settling in at the 95-76 final.
Cartwright led all scorers with 26 points, earning a share of the tournament MVP honors with Tynez Wilson (Union-Endicott H.S./Binghamton), who finished with eight points, four rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Josh Delfino (Newfield H.S./Newfield) was huge with 11 points and 15 rebounds, setting a new school record both for rebounds in the playoff game and for the season. He added five blocks, also a playoff record. Martin had 16 points and seven rebounds while Charleston Collins, Jr. (Corcoran H.S./Syracuse) had another big game with 14 points and eight rebounds. Mudge added 12 points, giving the Panthers five scorers in double figures.

Henry Goal Gives TC3 Win
August 31, 2009
Playing against a 2008 national semifinalist, the TC3 women's soccer team earned its first win of the season Sunday. The 1-0 shutout of Holyoke Community College (Mass.) evens the TC3 record at 1-1. Holyoke, which advanced to the national final four last year, falls to 0-2.
After a scoreless first half, TC3 finally broke through midway through the second period. With just under 27 minutes left to play, Kristen Cleveland (Candor H.S./Candor) played a cross from the left side, just getting past the keeper. Courtney Henry (Thousand Islands H.S./Clayton) collected the pass and put the ball in the net for the first TC3 goal of the season. Keeper Chynna Pitlock (Milford H.S./Milford) made the goal stand, recording a fantastic diving save with just over 17 minutes left, and then keeping the net empty during a wild scramble in the box in the closing seconds.
TC3 opens regional play Wednesday at Mohawk Valley Community College.
