The men’s soccer program at Tompkins Cortland Community College first competed as a varsity team in 1995. In its 24 seasons of existence, the Panthers have had a grand total of two different head coaches. Year 25 will feature number three. Patrick Arancio has been named the new head coach for men’s soccer at Tompkins Cortland, replacing Andy Davis, who stepped down earlier this year after 14 seasons at the helm.
The first member of the 2019 recruiting class is Nathan Stuart from G. Ray Bodley High School (Fulton, N.Y.)
The longest-tenured coach in the history of Tompkins Cortland Community College athletics is stepping down. Andy Davis has decided to leave the men’s soccer program he has led for the last 14 seasons in order to spend more time with family and to pursue other opportunities. A search for his successor will begin immediately.
Richard Cochran (Groton/Cortland Christian Academy) has been voted to the NJCAA Region III Men’s Soccer All-Region team. The freshman defender was voted to the second team by the coaches from the 17 teams in the region.
