Dorothy Focht

One of the top bowlers in the Akron Area and Ohio, Dotty's biggest claim to fame is teaming with Donna Zimmerman in winning the Ohio State Doubles Title in 1956. She first started rolling doubles with Ruby Loy in the old PBA Traveling League as was a member of what bowling buffs consider the greatest five-lady team in the history of Akron. Seven times a member of the Beacon Journal All-Star team and three times named Bowlerette of the Year. A founder of the 600 Club's Happy Time Tourney for the retarded children.
