Monster Energy Pro begins

Haleiwa's Kaupena Miranda earned a perfect 10 to highlight yesterday's action at the Monster Energy Pro at Pipeline that saw waves climb to a height of 15 feet.

Miranda's luck would end there as he was eliminated in the second round later in the day. Local boys Kalani Chapman, Jun Jo, Rainos Hayes, Fred Pattachia and Mark Healey advanced to the third round.

Greg Long, who was attacked by a shark during practice for the event on Wednesday, was one of the early eliminations, unable to score higher than the 2.9 needed to advance out of the opening round.

Sea Warriors split doubleheader

Mario Ramirez earned a complete-game victory, giving up just four hits as the Sea Warriors took the opener of a doubleheader against Sonoma State 3-2 yesterday at Keehi Lagoon Field.

The Cossacks managed to split the doubleheader, winning the second game 2-1. Matt Wilhite's two-run double in the fifth proved to be enough run support as Abel Romero, Dave Stagnaro and Tim Woerner combined to hold the Sea Warriors to just one run on five hits.

Hawaii Pacific is now 6-3 for the season.
