Legally Blind Elderly Bowler Scores 244
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Good morning, I'm John Ydstie.
All it took was a little teamwork. Ninety-four-year-old Ester Medley of Centralia, Washington bowled a score of 244. Not too shabby, especially when you consider she's legally blind. Medley can't see straight ahead and relies on her 86-year-old husband to tell her which pins are still standing after her first ball. Medley had eight strikes and the second highest score of the year for her senior league.
