Ever skip stones as a kid? Most stones are
just layers of condensed sediment. But every once
in a while, if you look hard enough, you'll come
across a quartz crystal, an emerald, or even a
When Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson
picked up forward Don Stone last year, he found
"I remember recruiting Don in December of
his senior year," recalled Berenson. "I really
hadn't been too impressed. He's a quiet,
methodical player who plays in the shadows of
those around him. He certainly didn't make me
jump out of my seat, like certain recruits do.
"I'm watching him play Junior A and saying
to myself, 'Who's Don Stone?' Then I checkathe
stats and he has four or five points for the game
and he's leading the league in scoring! The guy
obviously knows how to play."
Michigan goalie Warren Sharples recently
joked about Stone's place on the team.
"In practice, 'Hound' can't hit the side of a
barn," teases Sharples. "I don't think he could hit
the ocean if he tried. He gets nothing on me, let
alone past me!"
Despite his inability to score on his own
goalie, Stone ranks fourth on the Michigan squad
in scoring with 15 goals and 17 assists Only
two Central Collegiate Hockey Association
rookies, Ferris State's John dePourcq (37) and
Michigan State's Sean Heaphy (30), have scored
more league points than Stone (27).
Stone also scores goals in the clutch. His
seven power-play goals and two game-winners
attest to that.
Stone racked up 99 points last season with the
Detroit Falcons and was named to the North
American Junior Hockey League's first all-star
team. In 1985-86, the Utica, Michigan native
tallied 122 points with the Compuware Midget
Despite carrying a big stick, Stone remains
quiet both on and off the ice.
"I don't really have much to say," said Stone.
back to his natural position in the middle, but
the shift in roles stifled Stone's production.Now
back on the wing, with playmaker- captain Todd
Brost centering and high-scoring senior Billy
Powers on the right side, Stone is once again
adding to his point total.
"Coach sets up our lines so that linemates
complement one another," said the soft-spoken
Powers. "Brostie is great at setting guys up, and
it's my role and Don's role to score goals. Don's:
got a great knack for putting the puck home.

"I appreciate the attention, but I've got a quiet
personality. I just want to play hockey and take
advantage of the academics at Michigan."
At 5-10, 165-pounds, Stone does not drum up
visions of the muscular, sculpted statues of
Michelangelo. In addition to lacking size, he is
also without the breakaway speed which enables
most players of Stone's stature to succeed at the
Recruited as a center, Stone has seen most of
his action as a Wolverine at left-wing. For a
short spurt in midseason, Berenson moved him

Rookie sensation Don Stone has emerged as one of Michigan's main
scoring threats this season. The left-winger is fourth on the team in
scoring with 32 points.

The Michigan men's volleyball
club has all the reason in the world
to feel good about their organiza-
tion. After winning the Midwestern
Intercollegiate Volleyball Associa-
tion championship last season, the
team has continued to play well
this season, starting off the year
with a 6-0 record.
Last weekend, Michigan defeated
arch-rival Notre Dame and the Uni-
versity of Windsor, where volley-
ball is a varsity sport.
Unfortunately, the club has more
responsibilities than its on the
court performance. Since it is a
club sport, the funds are limited.
"We have to do most of the
scheduling ourselves, and we take
care of administrative duties," said
club vice president Dave Glaser.
"(The Michigan athletic depart-
ment) is pretty cooperative as long
as deadlines are met," said Tony
Rodriguez. "We get money from
donations, an open tournament in
December, parents, and hopefully
some corporate sponsorship from
The team distributes fliers in the
dorms and libraries to get the atten-
tion of potential players. "You
hope to have a good freshman class
or find someone that's 6-3 and takes
an interest in the sport," said head
coach Peg McCarthy.

Even without recruiting, Mc-
Carthy has been able to piece to-
gether a talented team. "We have a
lot of balance. I've got some excel-
lent centers, and a real good com-
bination of experience and youth,"
Many players distinguished
themselves before coming to
Michigan. Glaser, Jeff Timberlake,
John Basey, and Bill Fink all
played on Junior Olympic teams,
while Mark Burks starred in the
United States Volleyball Associa-
tion national tournament.
With a talented squad assembled,
McCarthy hopes that the team will
go undefeated and move on to the
National Club Tournament
hosted by Maryland.
The team, however, is still
cautious about their chances of
playing in the post-season tourna-
ment, as starters Jin Kim and Scott
Fitzgerald have been lost for an in-
definite period due to injuries. There
is also the financial problem.
Michigan was invited to the tour-
nament last year, but had to decline
because they could not afford to
travel to the tourney site in Texas.
This year, the players hope that
only poor performances, not lack of
funds, will disrupt this season's ef-
forts. "We'll be there this year,"

"Stone is a very highly-skilled offensive
layer with a knack for scoring," said Michigan
ssistant coach Larry Pedrie, "but we ( the
oaching staff) have no qualms with his defense
t all. He's tough, he works hard, and takes pride
"He's a guy you can count on. The guy i
averaging one point a game for a freshman'
hat's outstanding- and I don't think anyone in
he league knows it."
