Sage Hill's Courtney Conlogue wins 2009 US Open of Surfing


Champion Courtney Conlogue

Sage Hill High School senior-to-be, Courtney Conlogue dropped in a 9.0 wave and sealed a victory at Hurley’s US Open of Surfing.

The waves at Huntington Beach pier were averaging shoulder oversized on Saturday. Maybe not as big as the 8 footers down the coast at the Wedge, but big enough for Conlogue to score high marks with a few impressive drops. The Santa Ana resident beat out the defending champion, Kauai’s Malia Manuel.

Courtney scored a US Open high of 19.63 in the quarterfinals. The Santa Ana resident sees this is as her biggest win and with good reason. This is a ASP World Qualifying Series event which comes with a $10,000 prize. Courtney’s other notable accomplishments this year includes winning the 2009 ISA World Junior Championships in Ecuador, a fifth consecutive Southwest Open Women’s Conference title and OC Surfer of the Year contest.

Although only 16 years old, this is the fourth year Courtney has competed in the Open. Courtney and 15 year old Malia could arguably be the two top female surfers in the world.

Final Results
1 - Courtney Conlogue (USA) 17.17
2 - Malia Manuel (HAW) 12.67
