With determination and practice, Jeanne has developed into one of our best bowlers. Effortlessly she averaged 205 and 204 this past season. Highest average attained was 219 during the 1992/93 season.
700 Series are too numerous to mention, a 747 in the Cloverlanes All Star Bowlerettes league this year, with 5 for the 1994/95 season and as many as 11 in 1992/93. The highest, so far, is 767.
Not only was she able to roll one perfect game but she has two to her credit, as well as a 299, 289 and 290.
In the State, she won All Events in 1989 with a score of 2016, Doubles in 1993 with 1274 and was on a Champion Team four times, 1989, 1991, 1993 and 1994. She keeps trying for the “Queens” title and has participated in nine tournaments.
