Donna Myers

The majority of Myers’ numerous bowling awards were earned from the 1960s to the early 1980s, but a few years ago, at age 55, she carried the highest average in her career – 203. Myers has the distinction of being the first woman to win a local Senior Bowlers Association title which she accomplished in the 1991-92 season at Bories Bowland in a tournament that drew 80 men and six women. A native of Akron, she has a record of achievement that includes both individual and team honors in the area. She was inducted into the Tri-County Bowling Hall of Fame in 1986. Although she never bowled until she was 21, in just two years, under the guidance of Boris Mitseff of Bories Bowland, her average went from 130 to 180. In just five years she was named to the Beacon Journal All-Star Team for the first time. When her average neared 200 in the late 1960s, Myers joined the Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour and competed for three seasons. Her best effort was a 12th place finish in Rochester, NY. She was named Bowler of the Year by the Akron Women’s Bowling Association five times and was a member of the AWBA’s all-star team 10 times. She has one perfect game and has rolled a 700 series 15 times in her career.
