LOS ANGELES-- Stanford's Cassidy Krug and Kristian Ipsen picked up their second gold medals in as many days, joining fellow Cardinal, Dwight Dumais' bronze medal to close out the AT&T Diving Championships at UCLA.
Krug, who yesterday with partner Kassidy Cook, won the women's three-meter synchro title, on Sunday won the three-meter springboard with a mark of 318.20 over Summer Allman (315.75). Ipsen, who won the men's three-meter on Saturday, joined Troy Dumais to win the three-meter men's synchro with a combined scored of 459.00. Dumais brothers, Justin and Dwight, finished third (378.63).
Krug closed out the meet with a forward 2 1/2 somersault one twist pike for a finals-high 75.00 points paced by 8.0's or better from six of the seven judges. Krug needed every bit of her final dive, as she trailed Allman by 2.05 points heading into the final dive. She began the day with a score of 72.00 with 8.0's or better from five judges on an inward 2 1/2 somersault pike.
Dumais and Ipsen closed out the meet with three scores over 85 points, including a 90.78 on their fourth dive, paced by 8.5's or better from all 11 judges, a 93.45 and 9.0's or better from seven judges and 9.0's or better and a score of 86.13 on their final dive from five judges.
The Dumais brothers tallied 70 points or more from four of their final six dives, paced by a high of 77.52 on their third dive and 7.5 from 10 judges. The three Dumais brothers were featured in the Los Angeles Times over the weekend.
Over the last two weeks, Stanford affiliated swimmers and divers combined for 14 medals at the U.S. National Swim Championships last week at Stanford and this week's diving championships at UCLA.
