Callaghan Victorious at Subway Surf Series WollongongPORT KEMBLA BEACH (Sunday, 10 April 2016): The final day of the Subway® Surf Series Pro Junior saw an amazing day of action with Macy Callaghan (Avoca, NSW) taking the victory in the punchy-two foot waves at Port Kembla Beach.
Macy Callaghan (Avoca, NSW) added her fourth JQS victory for 2016 to her portfolio, taking out the Junior Womens division. Callaghan surfed on point over the entirety of the event, posting the three highest wave scores of the division, including a near-perfect 9.25 (out of a possible 10 points) in her round one exchange. Callaghan carried the same form into the final against Alysse Cooper (Queenscliff, NSW), posting a heat total of 13.35 (out of a possible 20 points) courtesy of her razor sharp turns and gouges.
“This win gives me a lot of confidence going into the final Subway Pro Junior event at Cronulla,” said Callaghan. “I set myself the goal to win the Australasian Junior Qualifying Series so I could get into the World Junior Titles and this win gives me a good edge. Hopefully I can seal the deal at the final event at Cronulla.”
Alysse Cooper (Queenscliff, NSW) showed moments of brilliance in the Junior Womens final, but was unable to find the required 7.50 wave score needed to take the victory from Callaghan.
“I was just happy to make the final,” said Cooper. “ I had a few really tough heats and I was over the moon to get through those. A massive lull came through in the final and it threw my tactics out a little.”
