Sara Cassady, a senior at Cal State Northridge, is one of the best college divers in Southern California. But she doesn't have a special dive, one that she saves for her grand finale that sends the fans into a frenzy. She doesn't have any superstitions, other than eating Cheerios on the day of a meet. She doesn't have hobbies, just class and practice, class and practice. Actually, Cassady is pretty boring.

Cal State Northridge swimming Coach Barry Schreifels is optimistic as his team heads into this week's Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference championships at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach, but he's also realistic.

Maybe Sara Cassady just wanted to make it interesting. After winning the one-meter dive at the Pacific Collegiate Swimming Conference championships last week, the Cal State Northridge diver quickly fell behind in the three-meter competition after a sloppy reverse two-and-a-half on one of her early dives. Her final three dives were all rated among the hardest in degree of difficulty, and she nailed all three. Cassady ended up narrowly beating Sheri Takeuchi of UC San Diego, 468-467.
