CATHERINE SPICER stunned Anson Lowkie to capture the open singles crown in the San Fernando Zone Table Tennis Tournament Thursday night at Petrotrin Sports Club, Guaracara.
Lowkie was the overwhelming title favourite, but after crushing Wesley Dookhoo 11-5, 11-2, 11-5 in the semifinals, the ninth-ranked male player in the country was not even able to win a game as the third-ranked female player prevailed 11-6, 11-9, 13-11 for the trophy.
It was not the first time that the 22-year-old Spicer had beaten a top-ten male player as she had scalped Everton Sorzano in during the National League last year.
