Emma Nedley was so good this season for the Penn softball team, the postseason award she garnered Wednesday almost seemed anticlimactic.

Nedley was rewarded for her dynamic, breakthrough season by being named Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

A freshman outfielder from Penn-Trafford, she also made the all-conference first team as a unanimous selection.

Nedley, on the ballot for the NFCA Freshman of the Year award — the top 25 freshmen in the nation make the list — hit .386 with 26 runs, eight doubles, a team-high five home runs and 23 RBIs.

She hit .435 with 17 runs against conference opponents. She had more steals (9) and hits (30) than any league freshman. Penn pointed out that the Quakers had a 12-2 record when Nedley had an RBI and 16-5 when she scored a run.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
