Tieman, Coloma Earn Ivy League Weekly Honors

PHILADELPHIA - Junior Taylor Tieman has been named the Ivy League's Pitcher of the Week while freshman Brooke Coloma earned Rookie of the Week honors, announced by the League office Tuesday afternoon.

Tieman (Rolling Hills Estate, Calif.) earned four wins and a save in a week where the Quakers went 6-0. She was awarded her first win of the season in Penn's 6-4 victory over La Salle, throwing the full seven innings. Out of the bullpen, Tieman earned the win in game one against Brown, facing just one batter and forcing the third out with the score tied 2-2 in the top of the seventh. Penn won it in the bottom of the inning with a walk-off grand slam. In game two, Tieman threw a one-hit shutout and was just a strike away from the no-hitter in the Quakers' 5-0 win over Brown. Against Yale, Tieman preserved Penn's 5-4 win, getting the final two outs in the seventh. She also had a game-tying double, scoring two, as the DP. In the nightcap, Tieman pitched another complete game shutout as Penn won 2-0. Appearing in every League game so far, she allowed zero runs, three hits, three walks, while striking out nine and holding the opposition to a .102 batting average.

Coloma (Martinez, Calif.) hit a walk-off grand slam with two outs, breaking the tie with Brown and giving the Quakers the 6-2 win in the bottom of the seventh. In a week where Penn went 6-0, Coloma hit .333 (6-for-18) with a double, home run, eight RBI, four runs scored, and two stolen bases (2-for-2). She sparked the team offensively in their doubleheader with La Salle, putting Penn up for good with an RBI single in the fifth as they won 6-4 in game one. She then went 3-for-4, including an RBI double and run-scoring single to start and close the third inning in the nightcap in which Penn won, 9-6. Coloma leads Penn with a .361 average on the season.

The Quakers are back in action Wednesday when they travel to Temple for a doubleheader starting at 3 p.m.
