The 1970 national championship men's gymnastics team held a 50-year reunion Friday night.

When trampoline champion Goerge Huntzicker discovered his championship ring was missing two years ago, he phoned Rapper — the team’s captain — to ask how to get a new one.

The wheels began turning in his head and, soon enough, the idea snowballed.

Senior setter MacKenzi Welsh has embraced a new offensive system that emphasizes balance for the Michigan volleyball team.

This year, the No. 14 Michigan volleyball team knows Skjodt’s production is gone. And with such a realization comes another: Nobody on the roster can replicate the numbers she posted.

So, the Wolverines (4-2) have chosen to adapt rather than force.

Their offensive makeover was on full display over the weekend at the Dayton Invitational, even as they lost two of three matches against unranked competition in the Flyers and Missouri. Throughout the non-conference tri-match, senior setter MacKenzi Welsh turned to three relatively new faces — senior outside hitter Sydney Wetterstrom and freshman middle blockers May Pertofsky and Jess Robinson — to shoulder the majority of the burden.
