HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Four Hawaiians entered the water Wednesday in the final day of the ASP Fiji Women's Pro, but only one ended higher than the rest.

Kauai's Malia Manuel from Kauai made it furthest of all the Hawaii natives in the competition, advancing to the semifinals after a 9.50 quarterfinal first place finish.

However, she was eliminated from the contest after a 8.86 semifinal score placed her in second to Australia's Sally Fitzgibbons.

Carissa Moore also made it to the quarterfinal stage after defeating fellow Hawaii competitor Tatiana Weston-Webb in round four. But, Moore was eliminated after narrowly falling to Dimity Stoyle. The Palolo Valley native finished the round with a score of 6.70 while Stoyle earned a 6.83.

Alessa Quizon was also eliminated in round four after being defeated by South Africa's Bianca Buitendag.
