Sets New Record for Females with MD

Peggy Overbey's 179 Is the New Record for Females who have Muscular
My friend & fellow Central Florida Quad Squad Bowler Peggy Overbey set a
new wheelchair bowling record for females with Muscular Dystrophy, bowling a 179 last
Saturday. Here's her scoresheet and additional commentary is
We had four IKAN Users -- two girls and two guys -- at the Quad Squad
outing, and Peggy & Lilian decided they wanted it to be girls vs. guys
(them vs. Aaron and me). Let's just say it was the girls' day.
Shortly after Peggy's 179, Lilian posted a 185, and since we generally
use each person's top score of the afternoon for comparison, Aaron and I
were in trouble. In Aaron's defense, it was just his second Quad Squad
outing bowling IKAN-style. But I had difficulty putting together a particularly good game
too. No worries. Congratulations to the ladies -- they bowled very well!
The unusual thing about Peggy's record game, is that she had a very
impressive six strikes (including a turkey to start her game and a
double later) but no spares. That's unusual because Peggy is typically
very good at picking up spares, especially when she's got her "A game."
That goes to show the power of consecutive strikes -- they help you
accumulate points quickly.

Keep up the good work Peggy!
