The women's Pro Junior event finished off another marathon day of competition at the Los Cabos Open of Surf and young talents shined in moments of great surfing. Quarterfinals are set after completing the final four heats of Round Two and witnessing the remaining top seeds debut in phenomenal fashion.

Caroline Marks continued to showcase her backhand attack on both fronts, earning a Round Six appearance at the Qualifying Series (QS) level as well, but saving the best for last. The 15-year-old earned three excellent scores en route to her win with Mike "Snips" Parsons alongside her as a coach. A near-perfect 9.60 capped off an incredible day for the young California transplant.

"I'm just trying to have fun and do my best in both events," Marks said. "Having no pressure here is great and I'm really enjoying myself. I couldn't believe I almost got a perfect score at the end of that heat, it was amazing to end the day like that."

Aside from Marks' near-perfection, Alyssa Spencer dropped an impressive performance of her own once more in this event. Despite being eliminated from the QS event in Round Five, the 14-year-old has her sights on the Pro Junior title even more so now.

"Going into that heat I just wanted to get a good first wave, which I ended up getting a one, but I found a good one toward the end so that was great," Spencer said. "After falling out of the QS this morning, all my focus can go toward the Pro Junior which has been my focus so I'm happy to keep going. I really want to get past the Quarterfinals and better my result from last year, and keep getting better."
