Women's Soccer Player Honored
November 12, 2012
Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Kelsey Fitzsimons (James I. O’Neill H.S./Fort Montgomery) has been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region women’s soccer team. The defender earned second-team honors in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation. A total of 27 players were honored between first and second teams. Finger Lakes Community College had five players selected, followed by Alfred State College, Broome Community College, and Mohawk Valley Community College with four each. Jefferson Community College was the only other team with multiple selections; two Cannoneers were selected.
Fitzsimons led a Tompkins Cortland defense that limited the opposition to one or fewer goals in 11 of 18 games. The Panthers advanced to the regional playoffs for the eighth-straight year, falling in the quarterfinals.
This also marks the eighth-straight year Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the all-region team.
