Attention, bowling couples: You may want to think twice about challenging Jim and Anita Murtishaw to a match.
You don't need a calculator (or, perhaps like us, you do) to figure out that the duo totaled 1589 — not bad at all for a mixed doubles total.
Although she was outscored for the session, Anita was the center of attention early on as she began with a 300 game, then extended her string of strikes to 18 during game 2. She wound up with 242 that game, and finished the session with 236.
Jim got 11 pins above the 800 plateau by rolling games of 265, 274 and 268.
Jim may have outscored Anita on this particular night, but Anita still owns career bragging rights in the Murtishaw family. Her all-time high series is 848; Jim's is 847.
