BASEBALL CHANGE-UP . . . Due to weather concerns, Stanford baseball will play a doubleheader with Pac-12 co-leader Oregon on Friday, starting at 3 p.m. The third game of the series is set for Saturday at 2 p.m., depending on the possible storm scheduled for that day. The teams originally were going to play single games Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Ducks come in with a 5-1 conference record (18-5 overall) and tied with Washington and UCLA for the top spot. Stanford (1-2 and 8-10) resides in seventh place and needs to have a successful weekend in order to move among the leaders.
DIVE TEAM . . . Stanford's Kristian Ipsen and Kassidy Cook are two of 25 divers named to the 2014 AT&T Olympic Performance Squad, as announced Wednesday by USA Diving. The AT&T Olympic Performance Squad includes divers who most exhibit the skill and determination to become 2016 Olympic Team members. Those selected to the 2014 squad include divers who competed at the 2013 FINA World Championships, have been named to the 2014 FINA World Cup team or who have been identified by High Performance director Steve Foley as divers who could play a key role in shaping the 2016 team. The squad has been proven to be a pipeline to the Olympics as all 11 members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team for diving were members of the Olympic Performance Squad in the years leading up to London.
