TABLE TENNIS: Brook into nationals
6:30pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sport
Witney's Kristelle Brook, 15, qualified for the national finals in Preston after a winning display at the South Region Junior Championships at Cippenham.
In her first year out of cadets, the KIng’s School pupil won the under 18 girls category with an unblemished record.
Having edged out Rosalind Lane (Bucks) in the opener, she defeated Shristi Ghosh (Bucks) in straight games and then saw off England No 8 cadet, Amy Blagborough, from Hampshire, 11-6 after a titanic battle.
Brook then went on to win her last two matches easily, including a 3-0 against another younger top-ten ranked player, Katie Holt (Hants) to complete a quintet of victories.
