Connellsville’s Nedley improves time at states

| Saturday, March 17, 2007 12:00 a.m

Connellsville sophomore Alan Nedley shaved more than a tenth of a second off his best time of the year, but it still wasn’t enough to push him into medal contention at the PIAA Class AAA championships Friday at Kinney Natatorium at Bucknell University.

Nedley swam a 53.93 in the 100-yard butterfly, which was enough to tie him with Josh Gleim of Altoona for 26th place, behind champion Douglas Dietrich of Central Catholic. Nedley qualified for the state finals with a 54.09 at the WPIAL championships at Pitt’s Trees Pool on March 1.

On Thursday, Mt. Pleasant senior Chelsea Grosser improved from her 18th place qualifying slot and finished 13th in the 500 freestyle in 5:22.82. She was also on the 400 freestyle relay team that finished 16th.

Southmoreland’s Matt Ramey finished ninth in the 500 freestyle with a time of 4:50.68.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
