Stanford, Calif. - Former Stanford diver Cassidy Krug (2003-07) won the first national title of her career when she captured the 3-meter event at the 2007 Kaiser Permanente Senior National Diving Championships that concluded on Sunday. The meet was held at the Maas Diving Family Facility on the campus of Stanford University that served as Krug's home during her collegiate career.

"Obviously, winning her first individual national title is one step closer to reaching the Olympic team," said an excited Stanford diving head coach Rick Schavone. "This was a huge breakthrough. It was even bigger than the NCAA wins in her senior year, and we're very excited about that."

"The entire meet was a tremendous success," added Schavone. "It was one of the finest senior national meets in several years with a great outdoor environment with a tremendous crowd. They said they would like to have it here every year."

Krug and her diving partner Nancilea Foster were also second in the synchronized 3-meter event held on Sunday. The duo scored 291.15 points and finished behind only the winning tandem of Kelci Bryant and Ariel Rittenhouse.
