Nedley off to fast start for Penn softball

Bill Beckner

From Penn-Trafford to Penn, Emma Nedley has not missed a beat.

After just weekend of college softball, the freshman center fielder is off to a fast start, and with it, has collected some early-season accolades.

Nedley was named Ivy League Rookie of the Week after going 8 for 17 at the plate with a home run and three RBIs over a five-game stretch in Clearwater, Fla. for the Quakers (2-3).

She has 14 total bases.

Nedley, who was recruited by Penn while playing in a travel tournament in Colorado, went 2 for 3 in her college debut, and 3 for 4 with a run in her second game, of which she was a homer shy of hitting for the cycle.

Her first college homer came Sunday against Troy, a three-run blast in an 8-3 loss.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
