Brittany edges Linda to win ‘CAC’ trials*


DESPITE losing to a 14-year-old in her second match, Brittany Joseph still won the trials to assist with the selection of the national table tennis team for the CAC (Central American and Caribbean) Games last Saturday night at National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua.
The national champion was edged 2-11, 11-9, 11-7, 9-11, 11-5 by Shreya Maharaj, but won her other four matches in the straight round-robin competition to edge Linda Partap- Boodhan for the top spot. This 42-year-old was also triumphant four times, but had to settle for second based on the head-to-head rule as she was edged 6-11, 11-3, 11-6, 9-11, 11-7 when she faced Joseph in the penultimate round.
