Young into fourth round at junior worlds
Maui’s Cody Young competes in the third round of the World Surf League Jeep World Junior Championship today in Kiama, Australia. Young, the event’s top seed, defeated France’s Erwan Blouin 12.83-7.23 in surf of 2-3 feet and advanced to the fourth round, where he will face Japan’s Joh Azuchi and Australia’s Sandon Whittaker for a spot in the quarterfinals — the top two in the heat move on. When competition resumes, Maui’s Ocean Macedo will take on Oahu’s Finn McGill in the third round. The junior women’s competition was off today — Summer Macedo is set to take on Japan’s Minori Kawai and California’s Alyssa Spencer when the third round gets underway.
