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 9-ball Championships.

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.
