Orlando Pro Tour Results Day Three
 
Orlando, Fl In his own words, defending champion Parks Bonifay said he was only 60%. But after riding in the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour today in Orlando, that 60% was good enough. Bonifay riding with a torn meniscus and bone contusion in his right knee fell once, but still made the cut advance to tomorrow's action.

"I felt if I could stand up, I would make it in. But once I fell, it was a question, said the 23-year-old Bonifay, from Lake Alfred, Florida. Because of his injury, Bonifay could not train for the opener and was only able to hit the water a few times the last two months. Bonifay scored a 92.50 to finish second in the last heat of the day good enough to move on.

15-year Phillip Soven from Longwood put in a dazzling display today winning his heat easily. Soven hit a whirley 720, crow mobe 5, 720 and a whirley 5 to dominate the field. "I've been very consistent with my hard tricks. I had a really hard run and I landed them," said Soven.

The pro wakeskaters riding behind the Sea-Doo put on an impressive show for the big crowd today at the Orlando Watersports complex. Brian Grubb, Thomas Horrell, Danny Hampson and Clint Tompkins all won their respective heats to move to the semis. Defending tour champion Phillip Basino didn't finish first, but did make the cut keeping his dream alive to win in his hometown.

Women's star Dallas Friday hit the water for the first time this year and picked up where she left off last year. She finished first in her heat scoring a 51.67 to move to tomorrow's semifinals. Friday, who won the Orlando Pro Tour stop last year, is the heavy favorite to take the title. The last time Friday competed at this site last September, she won the World Championships.

In the Junior Men division, Canadian Aaron Rathy, who's the defending World Champion in the class, is a step closer to winning the Pro Tour opener. Rathy scored a 66.22 finishing first in his heat. Local junior rider Reed Hansen also scored a first in his heat to move to the finals.
