Lahaina’s Summer Macedo heads to today’s top score in the girls 18 competition of the International Surfing Association’s World Junior Surfing Championships in Hyuga, Japan. Macedo — who is seeking her second ISA junior world title in three years — had a 17.00, advancing to a third-round heat in which she will face Peru’s Lara Barrios, Japan’s Minori Kawai and Canada’s Mathea Olin. Maui has one other competitor in the third round — Wailuku’s Cody Young, in boys 18. Young won his second-round heat Monday with a 12.44. Lahaina’s Dante Silva and Haiku’s Logan Bediamol are in the second boys 18 repechage round. Silva won his first-round elimination heat today with an 8.06.
