Legally Blind Woman, 94, Bowls a 244

Posted on December 8, 2006 

CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) – Esther Medley of Centralia is legally blind, but when she bowls she can glimpse a bit of the floor to line up with the lane.

Medley, 94, can’t see straight ahead, so her 86-year-old husband Ralph tells her which pins are left after her first ball.

That’s how Medley recently bowled a score of 244, which included eight strikes, at Fairway Lanes in Centralia. It was the second-highest score of the year for her league.

The Medleys have been bowling in the senior league since 1979.
