Just because your age is a little older than most competitive athletes, doesnít mean you canít keep up with the best of them. Come meet the ladies of the Tuesday Senior Bowling League at Hilltop Superbowl ever week at 11 a.m. and they will give you an exciting bowling experience.
Recently, 12 ladies of the league participated in the Dallas USBC Womenís Bowling Associationís annual city championship.† Hilltop Seniors No. 1 was represented by Irene Hobbs, Jane Askew, Terry Wren and Freddie Williams. Bowling on Hilltop Seniors No. 2 were Dixie Honeycutt, Elsie Moses, Sandy Hutton and Glenna Sonnenberg.† Third team of Hilltop Seniors were Paul Usleton, Betty Clouse, Dawn Smith and Donna Lonon.
For Hutton, Sonnenberg, Usleton, Clouse and Smith this tournament was the first time they had participated at this level of competition. They did not let the pressure get to them. Hutton, with a 116 average, began with her highest game ever, a 171. Clouse, who just began league bowling this year and was a little nervous at first, rolled games of 96-148-123 on her 101 average. Smith, with a 105 average, tossed games of 109-138-132 for a good showing. Usleton shot 135-140-135, consistently near her 131 usual game.
It was agreed that if the bowlers with experience in tournament play had done their part, the teams could have all finished in the money.† Yet so goes the nature of competition. The ladies all agreed they had a great time and are ready to take on other tournaments as soon as they arise. Seniors rock, and bowl, too.
