TC3 run rampage

DRYDEN — Tompkins Cortland Community College finally opened regional softball play Friday, posting a big win over visiting SUNY Delhi.
The Panthers, playing for the first time since returning to New York after the spring break trip in mid-March, used a huge 14-run second inning to cruise past Delhi 28-7. The second game was called due to poor conditions.
TC3 improves to 4-7 overall and 1-0 in Region III play. It was the season opener for Delhi.
Despite playing in cold weather, it didn’t take long for the TC3 bats to warm up as the Panthers set team records for runs, hits, and RBI and four different Panthers tied the individual record for runs scored in a game.
Bethany Williamson led the attack going 4-for-5 with four runs scored and two RBIs. Brittney Wilson also went 4-for-5 with four runs scored while driving in a single run. Cortland High alum Rose Dovi and Amber Coulthart each put their name in the record book by scoring four runs. Both went 3-for-4 with Dovi driving in a team-high four runs.
Ashley Morey matched Dovi with four RBIs while going 3-for-4 and Casey Ebeling added a 3-for-4, three runs scored, and three RBIs performance. Candice Chilson finished 3-for-3 with three RBIs and Niki Rieman also had a multiple-hit day, going 2-for-5 with three runs scored and two RBIs.
Wilson earned the win on the mound, striking out six over five innings.
TC3 is scheduled to host a doubleheader with Hudson Valley CC today starting at 1 p.m.
TC3 BASEBALL was scheduled to play a Region III doubleheader at SUNY Cobleskill today, but the twinbill has been postponed. No makeup date has been set. The Panthers hope to play at Hudson Valley Sunday.
TC3 GOLF was supposed to play in the season-opening Mohawk Valley Invite Friday in Utica. The tournament has been moved to May 4.
