Sara Lyons, 96, set a record: A no-tap 300 means she knocked down at least nine pins with every ball. She tells KDKA-TV that she won't give up, no matter how old she gets.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Sara Lyons set a record. She's the first person at her Pennsylvania bowling alley to roll a perfect score of 300. She did this under no-tap rules, where you knock down at least nine pins each time. She tells KDKA that she will be 97 in November.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

SARA LYONS: You know, I just have to keep going. I won't give up. I won't give up no matter how old I get.

INSKEEP: A picture shows Sara Lyons in triumph, her arms in the air. It's MORNING EDITION.
