Meadow Uncapher took a roundabout path to Division I softball, but St. Francis (Pa.) is glad the freshman pitcher found her way to Loretto.

Uncapher, a former pitcher and infielder who won WPIAL and PIAA championships at Mt. Pleasant, won her first two starts for the Red Flash (5-4) and has not given up an earned run in 16 innings.

Her efforts earned her Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week honors.

Uncapher, who initially planned to go to Seton Hill but altered those plans because of a coaching change, pitched complete games against Savannah State and Cleveland State, allowing nine hits with five strikeouts and four walks across 14 innings.

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.
