The Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by BOQ has been called ON for the Quarterfinals with a start time of 7.30 a.m. local time (AEST). California’s Courtney Conlogue was impressive in all three of her heats yesterday, scoring the barrel ride of the event netting a solid 9.50 (out of a possible 10), and backed that up with a 9.00. In Round 3, she came close to securing first place, holding onto the highest single-wave score of the Heat, but was let down by her back-up score finishing in second place behind Gilmore. In Round 4 she dispatched Pauline Ado (FRA) to secure a spot in the Quarterfinals where she will once again square off against Gilmore.

“I’m really happy with my performance today,” said Conologue. “I had a lot of heats and came up against a lot of great competitors. I just had a really put on show and take full advantage of the waves that we have on tap. I did a lot of preparation and training in the off season getting everything fined tuned to improve on last year. I’m feeling really good and can’t wait till the Quarterfinals.”
