Sports on the Side

Swimmer honored

Los Altos resident Edward Cazalet was inducted into the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame Sept. 13 in Anaheim. Nine people are inducted annually; consideration requires a minimum of 16 years in the program, spanning four five-year age groups. Cazalet, who joined Masters Swimming in 1985, ranked among the top 10 in his age group for 18 years and set several records. He competed in the 1988, 1994 and 2006 FINA Masters World Championships, winning two gold, three silver and five bronze medals. Cazalet now swims recreationally at Los Altos Golf & Country Club. He lives in downtown Los Altos with his wife Pam Cazalet Blackman.

Polo for a cause

The event will feature polo, champagne, a gourmet luncheon, auctions, fine wines and live music. Participating polo players include Peter Milner of Los Altos and Jeff Graham of Los Altos Hills.
