“In the Zone” runs every other Friday. To comment on this article, visit dailytrojan.com or email Trevor at [email protected] It happened in a flash — almost unexpectedly.Sophomore outside hitter Falyn Fonoimoana, who appeared to be the future of an already bright USC women’s volleyball program after being named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 2010, was gone. There was neither a news conference nor an in-depth explanation given.A simple, almost mundane, 95-word press release was issued, alerting the masses to the fact that the talented sophomore would be “ineligible” for the upcoming season and leaving more questions than answers.“We exhausted all of our resources in order to help Falyn retain her eligibility,” Haley said. “We have very high expectations of our student-athletes, on and off the court, here at USC.”Was this because of academics? Or did it confirm message board rumors that Fonoimoana was looking to transfer to Hawaii?Regardless of the reason behind her departure, it leaves a gaping hole on the Women of Troy’s roster. After all, she finished second in the team last season in points and kills with 398.But USC will survive.Granted, you don’t replace those kind of stats overnight, but with nine talented starters returning after a run to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament in 2010, the Women of Troy, nonetheless, could very well notch back-to-back Final Four appearances. Heck, with a No. 2 preseason ranking, a national title is in play as well.With the Fonoimoana ordeal in the past, the team and the coaching staff can now move forward, putting its rocky week behind them.USC coach Mick Haley shouldn’t be one to worry, either. I’d be hesitant to get worked up over one player, especially when he has a multitude of talented student-athletes able and ready to make up for her absence.Haley certainly has the pedigree to back that up.Since coming to USC, Haley has guided the Women of Troy to two national championships, five Final Four appearances and 10 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances in 11 years; it’s quite the résumé.Possibly atop his laundry list of accomplishments, he guided the Women of Troy to an undefeated 2003 season, a rare feat in collegiate athletics.This year the Women of Troy have a ranking to defend, but more importantly, the top spot to chase.No. 1 Penn State, winners of four straight national championships, currently sit atop the collegiate volleyball world, but a fifth straight title won’t be easy looking at USC’s roster.The Women of Troy boast an impressive trio in outside hitter Alex Jupiter, setter Kendall Bateman and middle blocker Lauren Williams. All three are seniors and all three were All-Americans last season. And all three are among the best in school history.This season Jupiter has the opportunity to break the record for kills, service aces and points for a career at USC. Bateman can also set the career record for assists. And Williams, who at 6-foot-4 remains an incredibly important asset for the Women of Troy, particularly in terms of blocking, after posting 115 blocks last season.All three will be counted upon to make up for the absence of Fonoimoana, as well as the loss of sophomore middle blocker Alexis Olgard for the first couple weeks of the season because of offseason knee surgery.To aid the experience of their three seniors, last year’s No. 1 recruiting class, including sophomore libero Natalie Hagglund, sophomore outside hitter Kirby Bunham and sophomore outside hitter Sara Shaw will take on an even greater role.And an incoming freshman class rated 10th in the nation will also get an opportunity to play early in the season.So despite all the hoopla surrounding Fonoimoana, this USC squad still has the talent, experience, depth and coaching pedigree to challenge and upend the Nittany Lions four-year reign at the top.With Haley directing Jupiter, Bateman, Williams and a group of talented underclassman, no Fonoimoana doesn’t mean no NCAA championship.Without its Pac-10 Freshman Player of the Year, there is really no need to worry at all; she’s just another player on this deep and talented roster that can easily be replaced, just another road bump to get over on the way to another NCAA appearance and further.
FOLLOW US Washington ace Max Scherzer cooled off Tampa Bay with seven scoreless innings, and the Nationals used a makeshift lineup to beat the Rays 6-1 on Monday night.Kurt Suzuki had an RBI double among his three hits and Michael A. Taylor drove in two runs for the last-place Nationals, who were missing several regulars and started utilityman Brock Holt at designated hitter for the sixth time in his career. Holt batted third and went 2 for 4 with a double. He has nine hits over his past three games.Scherzer (4-2) stranded six baserunners in the first four innings before settling in and retiring 10 straight batters in one stretch. The three-time Cy Young Award winner allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked one in his second-longest outing of the season.The Rays came in with a season-best 5 1/2-game lead in the AL East and had won 22 of 27, while the Nationals were coming off a 3-8 trip that left a playoff berth highly unlikely for the defending World Series champions.In his second start since missing three weeks with shoulder inflammation, Tampa Bay right-hander Charlie Morton (1-2) threw 57 pitches in five innings, allowing three runs and four hits.Randy Arozarena homered for the Rays in the eighth, connecting against Tanner Rainey. Tampa Bay loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth against Will Harris and forced manager Dave Martinez to bring in closer Daniel Hudson, who struck out Arozarena for his eighth save in 11 chances.Washington broke it open with three runs in the sixth against Trevor Richards. Holt led off with a double off the wall in right and scored on Josh Harrison’s single. Taylor hit a one-out flare over the drawn-in infield and sprinted to second for a double that scored Suzuki and Eric Thames.WORTH NOTINGWashington infielder Wilmer Difo, who had been designated for assignment, cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to the team’s alternate site.TRAINER’S ROOMRays: LHP Ryan Yarbrough, who missed his last start with left groin tightness, said he expects he will have no restrictions when he returns to the mound Tuesday. “I’m feeling really great right now and until they take the ball out of my hands, I’m going to do what I was doing,” he said. … Manager Kevin Cash said he would be “mindful” of players’ workload during the final three weeks of the regular season but added that until the Rays clinch a playoff spot, “We’ve got a lot of work to do.”Nationals: C Suzuki took a foul tip off his right leg in the fifth. He was visited by a trainer but stayed in the game. … Rookie 2B Luis Garcia (bruised heel) was scratched. … INF Asdrúbal Cabrera (back stiffness) got the night off. … OF Juan Soto (sore left elbow) missed his fifth straight game. … RHP Dakota Bacus was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right flexor strain. Washington recalled RHP James Borque from its alternate training site in Fredericksburg, Virginia.UP NEXTRays: Yarbrough (0-2, 3.65 ERA) starts for the first time since Aug. 28 as Tampa Bay concludes its two-game series at Washington.Nationals: RH Aníbal Sánchez (1-4, 6.48 ERA) has worked past the sixth inning once in his seven starts this season, and that was his only victory — on Aug. 23 against Miami.Image credits: AP COMMENT SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE First Published: 8th September, 2020 06:32 IST Written By LIVE TV Associated Press Television News Last Updated: 8th September, 2020 06:32 IST Scherzer Cools Off Rays, Nats Win 6-1 With Makeshift Lineup Washington ace Max Scherzer cooled off Tampa Bay with seven scoreless innings, and the Nationals used a makeshift lineup to beat the Rays 6-1 on Monday night
