MACY CALLAGHAN CROWNED PRO JUNIOR CHAMP!
The final Subway® Surf Series Pro Junior for 2016, went down over the weekend at North Cronulla with Macy Callaghan (Avoca, NSW) claiming the World Surf League (WSL) Australasian Junior Qualifying Series (JQS) title, as well as the Womens event division.
Macy put the icing on the cake in what has been a stellar beginning to 2016, claiming the WSL Australian JQS Championship, as well as her fifth Pro Junior event for the year. In a wave-starved final, Callaghan managed to make the most of the limited opportunities, posting a nine-point ride, which left fellow finalist Kobie Enright (Tweed Heads, NSW) chasing an elusive 7.51 wave score that never eventuated. As a result, Macy also earned her position into the upcoming World Junior Titles.
“My biggest goal this year was to win the JQS series and a few Pro Junior events, so I’m happy that I achieved them,” said Callaghan. “It’s a bit of a bummer that the waves dropped so much by the finals, but my Dad just told me to get whatever I could and fortunately I got that nine-point ride. This whole series has given me the best platform to go onto the Qualifying Series next year and to have my name on the same list as some of my heroes is a great feeling.”
