Simi- lar to the match against West Valley, Zorrozua said her team let up in the third set, which allowed Pullman to prevent the sweep. "During that third set, we expected to win and stepped back," Zorrozua said. "It was a teaching moment. It showed us that if we want to sit back and just watch, we won't be successful." On offense Rylie Pease and Skillingstad had nine kills and Stark recorded 25 assists. Pease and Stark led the match with three aces each. On defense, Hailey Bridges had 13 digs and Gould and Marissa Peach recorded one block each. "Bridges played a great match from the back row," Zorrozua said.

His familiarity with the team will some- what ease the learning Curve he'll go through as he works with a new roster and anew front office. He's also not afraid to spend money on talent. One person's fate in his hands is Mariners manag- er Lloyd McClendon. In an August interview, Mather didn't specify what ca- pacity McClendon will work under the new GM, though he hopes it will still be as the team's manager. Dipoto's dealings with an "old school" manager like Scioscia didn't sit well and there's speculation that he might walk into a power struggle with Mc- Clendon - that's even if he decides to keep him on of the bitterness that came fromhis departure with the Angels over the summer - or even get some pay- back with both teams being in the AL West. He's also got an uphill battle ahead as fans and critics will look to him to hear his plan and methods to bring Seattle to the postseason, something that hasn't happened in 14 years.
