Stanford Diving Wins All Four Events at BYU
Feb. 13, 2009
PROVO, Utah - Divers from the top-ranked Stanford men's team and the No. 2 Cardinal women's squad won all four competitions from host BYU in a dual meet at the Richards Building Pool this afternoon. Freshman Taylor Sishc (1-meter) and senior Dwight Dumais (3-meter) were the men's winners, while junior Carmen Stellar (1-meter) and sophomore Meg Hostage (3-meter) captured the women's competitions.
Sishc won the men's 1-meter competition for his first collegiate dual meet victory, while his score of 307.95 represented an 'A' qualifying mark for the upcoming NCAA Zone E Diving Championships. He led the way for a Stanford trio that finished first through third, as sophomore Brent Eichenseer was second with an 'A' score of 301.05 and senior Casey Weston placed third with a 'B' mark of 297.3. Dumais was sixth at 279.75.
Dumais won the 3-meter competition with a score of 403.8 that was nearly 84 points above the 'A' qualifying cut. Eichenseer was again second with an 'A' mark of 401.025, which was 52.5 points higher than the third-place finisher. Sishe (303.4) and Weston (300.9) finished fifth and six, respectively.
Stellar, who was named the Pac-10 Women's Diver of the Month for January, opened February in similar fashion. She won the 1-meter with a dual meet career-high score of 295.2, a mark that was well above the 'A' qualifying cut. Two other Cardinal divers recorded 'A' scores on the 1-meter, as Hostage was second (293.1) and senior Sarah Ohr finished fifth (270.075).
Hostage put forth a winning effort on the 3-meter, posting an 'A' score of 319.2. Stellar finished third at 293.25, while Ohr came in fifth with a 286.575 - good for her second 'A' mark of the day.
