Carlig begins her first season as an undergraduate assistant after a successful four-year career at Stanford. Carlig was a three-time All-American for the Cardinal and a member of four consecutive collegiate national championship teams.
Having competed for four years under head coach Heather Olson and one year with assistant coach Alison Bartosik, Carlig brings familiarity with the staff as well as her expertise with the sport of synchronized swimming to the team.
Carlig is currently co-terming in sociology during the 2008-09 school year after graduating with a Bachelor's degree human biology in 2008. She is also in the process of applying to medical school to continue her education.
A first-time coach, Carlig will bring a link to the Cardinal student-athletes who she competed with just a year ago.
