Two women bowl perfect games on same night

Posted: Updated:

It was all strikes Thursday night as two lucky ladies rolled their way to local bowling history.

For many at Champlain Lanes in Shelburne Thursday it was just another night in the league. But for Patty Bittner and Wendy Iby, it was a game to remember.

"I did not expect it. It just -- the ball was there. And sometimes it works," said Patty Bittner.

"And sometimes you just get lucky," Wendy Iby said.

The two women say they have been bowling together for years in mixed leagues.

"I like the people. You know, so much sportsmanship. Everybody is out there to give you a hand when you do good. They are out there to support you when you do bad. It's a team sport and I love that," Iby said.

And their teams certainly had something to celebrate Thursday when they each bowled a perfect game.

"Awesome! Awesome! We bowl in a mixed league with men and women, and they support us with bowling no matter what. But it was awesome to have two of us. Yah baby!" Bittner exclaimed.

That means 12 strikes in a row.

Bowling a 300 is no easy task, and Bittner says it doesn't happen often by females at Champlain Lanes.

"I had my first 300 in 2009 at this house. So that was the first time in I think 52 years," said Bittner.

Thursday marks Bittner's second 300 and Iby's first perfect game ever. The alley manager says having one female get a perfect game is rare, but two in one night is making history.

"My knees are still Jell-O. I couldn't even walk. Everybody was watching, it was so nerve-wracking I don't know how I did it. I really don't," Iby said.
