It was a tight final heat between the current world and Australian junior champion and her frequent opponent Laura Enever. In the last minutes of the competition, Enever just barely defeated Fitzgibbons with a final score of 16.65 to 13.20. The competitors just faced off a few weeks ago in a WQS event at the Arrive Alive Central Coast Pro, where Sally took home the first place championship with Enever in second.
In yet another impressive display of talent, eighteen-year-old Fitzgibbons scored the only perfect 10 wave in the third round at the event. The second place standing in Newcastle adds to her already impressive list of wins in the 2008 Australian surfing season.
Keep it comin' Sally!
