Best Bowler 

Ollie Harbin

Bowling a perfect game — 300 — doesn't mean what it used to mean. To make customers feel good about rolling a few games, bowling-alley owners oil the lanes in a way that keeps balls from sliding off course. But it's still an accomplishment — especially if you're 81 years old. Ollie Harbin of Lee's Summit became the oldest woman to bowl a 300 in a sanctioned game when she rolled nothing but strikes while competing in the Bill Stivers senior league in Overland Park. She followed up the 300 with games of 235 and 244. (She averages 175-180.) A record setter must get treated like a rock star around the ball carousel, yes? "Not really," says Jay Howland, who manages the AMF West Lanes in Overland Park, where Harbin put on her "X" show. "It's a pretty competitive league."
