Hey Rinaldo,

Sheri Daye and Mike Hickey won last year's Nationals for the women and men's divisions. They had enough points to end up on the lists above. I also added the article Dave Edlunds wrote in Spearfishing Magazine about Getting to the World Championships.

Enjoy the read,

Tony

Re: Congratulations to the Winners of the 2007 Nationals!

Here are some photos from the 2007 Fort Bragg, CA Nationals.

1) Dennis Haussler with the John Ernst Award. John Ernst was the top US Men's diver 15 times. Dennis only needs 13 more victories! Dave Edlund lifting the perpetual John Ernst Award.

2) Mike Van Haele and Dave Edlund stand in front of the Fort Bragg staging area. Dave holds carbon paddles, matrix fins and wears a new Picasso wetsuit. Life can not get much better!

3) Carl Krupansky's Men's team (L to R) Justin Smith (alternate), Dave Edlund, Bob Humphrey and 73 years young Carl Krupansky

4) Women's All-American Team (Janis Smith, Amanda Ernst, Brandi Easter and Faye Swenson)
