Cora has achieved many titles in her years of bowling and has, now, deservedly won a place in the Michigan Women’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame for Superior Performance.
Cora has been a consistently high average bowler, holding close to the 190’s and going as high as 204 for the 1980/81 season. Up to this season, she has over fifteen 700 series, her highest being 758. In this current season, 1985/86, she has three 700 series to her credit – 719 – 716 and 707. Her highest game is a 290, but 278 and 279 seem to be her favorite scores, having achieved this nine times.
