Michigan coach Bev Plocki hopes to move on after the hiring and firing of Rhonda Faehn.

Maddie Mariani stood tall, took a breath and composed herself. Then the freshman sped down the runway, gracefully launching herself over the vault, landing cleanly on the mat. She was then mobbed by her coaches and teammates.
