Another good day for Mikey today with a win in the Quarters. Semi's and Finals tomorrow.

Update Jan 13th
Mikey finished 2nd today in the U16's. He fought tooth-and-nail until the final seconds of the Final – even posting a near-perfect 9.33 scoring wave – but was unable to find an elusive 7.18 wave score to take the win. 
Nyxie was unstoppable in the event and was crowned U12 Girls champion. Conratulations groms !!!!
