Stanford grad Azevedo rejoins USA water polo program


Stanford grad and four-time Olympian Tony Azevedo played with the United States national men's water polo team for the first time this season Sunday, scoring a goal in Team USA's 10-10 tie with Italy in the first of three exhibition matches to be played in Southern California.

Azevedo took most of the year off before resuming training for the 2016 Rio de Janiero Olympics. He has participated in every Olympic beginning with the 2000 Games in Sydney. Azevedo is a Brazil native.

Stanford junior Bret Bonanni scored three times in the match, played at Newport Harbor High School. Cardinal senior Alex Bowen scored twice.

Stanford grad Janson Wigo, senior Connor Cleary, junior Jackson Kimball and sophomore Drew Holland are also with the Americans during the series.

The U.S. and Italy meet again Tuesday at Pomona-Pitzer at 7 p.m. The final game will be played Saturday at USC at 2 p.m.

Italy scored seven times in the fourth period, tying the game with a goal in the final 12 seconds.

The two teams met for the first time this year.
