Kate Surtees

From Countdown
Kate Surtees

Kate Surtees was a semi-finalist in Series 37.

She first appeared on 10 October 1997, beating Janet Nelson, and won a further six games before losing to Brett Smitheram, and was thusly denied the chance to become an octochamp. Returning as No. 1 seed for the finals, Surtees beat Janet Nelson for a second time in the quarter-finals, before losing to Christine White in the semis.

She returned the following week for Championship of Champions IX, but was beaten in the first round by Harshan Lamabadusuriya.

She is also a competitive Scrabble player.
