Jasmin Ouschan from Austria won the WPBA Carolina Classic in dominating fashion.
In the final she outgunned Jeanette Lee (USA) 7-1.
Vivian Villareal (USA) was crushed 7-1 by Ouschan in the semi-finals and Line Kjørsvik (Norway) lost 7-5 to Lee.
This was Ouschan's second win on the Classic Tour. She also won the 2006 EnjoyPool.com 9-ball Championships.
Defending champion Ga Young Kim from Korean finished in a tie for ninth.
Ouschan definitely has found some terrific form as of late. It's no more than two weeks since she claimed an amazing bronze in the unisex World Straight Pool Championship.
With this win Ouschan moves from 14th to 9th in the WPBA rankings. Villareal jumps from 9th to 7th. Kelly Fisher (England) stays on top, followed by Karen Corr (Ireland) and Xiaoting Pan (China).
The event took place from 11-14 September 2008 at the American Tobacco Campus, Durham, North Carolina, USA. It was the fifth of seven this season on the Classic Tour. Next up is the Pacific Coast Classic, 1-5 October, in Lincoln City, Oregon.
