Watson advances in U.S. Amateur golf Championships

Stanford grad Cassidy Krug qualified as the top competitor in the 3-meter event Wednesday at the AT&T National Diving Championships being contested at the Student Recreation Center on the campus of Texas A&M.

Krug was the top finisher in the women's 3-meter semifinals to lead the field of 12 divers who have advanced to Saturday's finals. Krug scored 347.25 points, with former Texas diver Summer Allman taking second at 335.40.

Krug, who advances into Saturday's finals in both the three-meter and the three-meter synchronized dive with partner, Kassidy Cook, had a score of 324.45 in the quarterfinals.

Krug's best dives in the semifinals were recorded in her final two attempts. She scored a 70.50 on a reverse 2 1/2 somersault pike and 72.00 points on a forward 2 1/2 somersault with a one twist pike.

Cardinal recruit Stephanie Phipps finished 13th with a score of 265.50.

Stanford grad Dwight Dumais finished sixth in the 1-meter competition with a score of 367.70. BYU's Brandon Watson won the event with a score of 398.85.

Stanford sophomore Sally Watson defeated Margaret Shirley of Athens, Ga. Wednesday, 2 & 1, in the first round of the United States Women's Amateur Championship being contested at the Charlotte (N.C.) Country Club.

Women's soccer

Stanford was picked to repeat as Pac-10 champions in the annual coaches poll announced Wednesday.

The Cardinal received eight of nine possible first-place votes, with fellow 2009 NCAA College Cup participant UCLA receiving the other.
