2006-07 REGULAR SEASON DIVING REVIEW
Cassidy Krug may have been the only current Stanford diver to win an event this season but she dominated with 14 victories and swept both the 1-meter and 3-meter during five of the 11 times she dove. Other current divers for the Cardinal include Shana Karp, Katie Lampe, Sarah Ohr and Carmen Stellar.
DIVERS CONTRIBUTE TO PERFECT DUAL MEET SEASON
Cassidy Krug's diving exploits and the assistance from her fellow divers helped the Stanford women's swimming and diving team record its first perfect dual meet regular season since the 2001-02 campaign. Stanford equaled the best regular season dual meet season record in school history with a 10-0 mark for the fourth time to mark the 14th occasion the Cardinal has not lost in the regular season in the program's 33rd campaign of existence.

STANFORD WOMEN'S SWIMMING AND DIVING -- A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
Stanford has won more NCAA team championships (8) than any other collegiate women's swimming program in the nation and also added an AIAW national title in 1980, the season before the NCAA began sponsoring a national championship. The Cardinal has also finished among the nation's top eight in each of the first 32 years of the program's history from the 1974-75 season through the 2005-06 campaign and has never placed lower than sixth in any of the 24 NCAA Championships. Stanford has an all-time dual meet record of 254-23 (.917), has been unbeaten in regular season dual meets 14 times and never lost more than two dual meets in a season with the program in its 33rd season of existence.
