USBC Bowlers - In the Spotlight

Seniors Still Enjoy League Bowling

This past January marked a special occasion with the oldest female and male to compete in local league play celebrating birthdays. On January 17 Doris Schmidt reached the age of 88 and is still rolling a bowling ball down the lanes. Doris started bowling in Cuero in the late 1950’s and when she was transferred to Victoria by her employer, Southwestern Bell Telephone in 1960, she joined a league. Through out her many years of bowling she has enjoyed league play at the Victoria Bowling Lanes, Woodlawn and now currently bowls at the Century Lanes in the senior Over The Hill League. Doris was unable to take advantage of bowling lessons in her earlier years because she stated that most of the coaches did not know to adjust to her left handed style. Even though she does not have a high average she was determined enough to win the Women’s Senior City Mixed All Events title in 1988 and 2015.  Dan C. Gutierrez celebrated his 95th birthday on January 11. He too has a long history of Victoria league bowling having started in the late 1950’s at the Victoria Lanes. After bowling a few years in league he stopped bowling for awhile but then joined his brother Carlos Gutierrez at the Century Lanes Over The Hill League in 1989 and then the Woodlawn Lanes in the Woodlawn Senior league and the Recyled Teenagers in 1990. Currently he bowls in the Over The Hill League and was a member of the team that won the league last year.  Both bowlers say they enjoy the game to stay active and the sense of camaraderie that the league offers. They are a great inspiration and example that living an active life one day at a time can help in your senior years.
