Irons brothers advance
in Pipe Masters

Brothers Andy and Bruce Irons of Kauai were among six Hawaii surfers who advanced through yesterday's opening round of the Mountain Dew Gerry Lopez Pipe Masters meet at the Banzai Pipeline.

The Pipeline Masters, third jewel in the Vans/G Shock Triple Crown, also is the final event on the Association of Surfing Professionals 1999 World Championship Tour.

Also moving into today's scheduled second round were Hawaii's Sunny Garcia, Shawn Sutton, Ross Williams and Conan Hayes, along with '99 world champ Mark Occhilupo of Australia.

Shane Dorian and Kalani Robb of Hawaii were first-round casualties in the 6- to 8-foot surf.

Harada, 8, participated in USA gymnastics camp

Megan Harada, an 8-year-old Punahou School student who competes for the Hawaiian Island Twisters, was the only gymnast from Hawaii named to the USA Gymnastics Talent Opportunity Program National Team.

Harada, the 1998 Level 5 state champion, was among 130 gymnasts in the 7-8 and 9-12 age groups who were selected from around the country to attend the National TOT training camp last week at Tulsa, Okla.
