Wins keep coming for young golfer Edan

Edan Cui competes at last month’s California State Invitational in Downey. He won his division for the second year in a row.

Entering sixth grade, Edan Cui is building a reputation for being an adept closer on the golf course.

While many of his 53 tournament wins weren’t close – the Los Altos Hills resident dominated from the start – others required him to make big shots down the stretch when threatened.

Los Altos High’s Vincent Colodny, catching the ball, is slated to play for the North in tonight’s all-star football game.

Although tonight’s 44th annual Charlie Wedemeyer High School All-Star Football Game will be played at Los Gatos High instead of Levi’s Stadium, which hosted it the past three years, locals participating in the showcase for the county’s top graduated seniors don’t seem too disappointed.

“I’m still pretty excited,” Los Altos High tight end Vincent Colodny said. “It’s not Levi’s, but it’s not the end of the world for me. I’m not torn up about it – I just want to play.”

As the wind whistles through his hair off the coast of North Carolina, Amir Tadros hits 15 mph.

It’s June 27, and the Los Altos High School rising senior is about to take ninth place at the U.S. Sailing Youth Championships at Wrightsville Beach. Hanging off the side of the dinghy, Tadros balances the boat’s weight while his sailing partner, Justin Lim, adjusts the team’s course.
