Continuing its success of the last nine seasons, SDSU again completed a dual-meet season without a blemish on its record, posting a 12-0 mark throughout their 2021-22 campaign. The Aztecs improved their dual-meet record to 95-2 since January of 2013 and extended its dual-meet win streak to 38 straight dating back to 2018.
The 1-meter diving competition opens the Championships on Wednesday and reigning Mountain West Diver of the Week Ximena Lechuga Gonzalez, a senior from Tijuana, Mexico, is set to lead the Aztecs who have captured the overall title in five of the last 11 years.
