The Stanford men's and women's swimming teams each had two divers qualify to compete in the NCAA championships following the final day of the NCAA Zone E Diving championships in Austin, Texas on Saturday.

Dwight Dumais won the 1-meter event on Thursday, and was joined by Brent Eichenseer with his third place finish in the platform event.

For the women, Carmen Stellar finished second on the platform to guarantee her trip to the championships, while Meg Hostage qualified on the 1-merer event Friday.

All four divers are eligible to compete in all three diving events, a plus for the men, who have a strong swimming team. The top-ranked Cardinal will go into the championships, March 26-28, as the favorite to win its first national title since 1998.

The Stanford women also benefited, as neither Arizona nor California will have a diver at the finals, two of Stanford's top rivals for the crown.
