New Wheelchair Bowling Record for Females with MD

Peggy Overbey’s 179 Is the New Wheelchair Bowling Record for Females who have Muscular Dystrophy

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.  For her scoresheet, click HERE!

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!

About billgator97

I started this blog to highlight how wheelchair users, especially power wheelchair users, are being empowered through sport, in particular: dynamic wheelchair bowling. It's actually bowling that emulates the able-bodied bowling process, i.e. setup, then physically approach and release the ball upon stopping short of the foul line. I happen to be paralyzed from my neck down, and ventilator-dependent, yet I've actually bowled 24 legitimate games of 200 or better. I say that NOT to brag, but to show what is possible and make the point that ANY wheelchair user who can safely operate their chair, they can bowl (I helped invent a device that makes it possible). Please look around and feel free to ask any questions! Thanks and God bless!
