Lucy Englebrecht

Unquestionably the dominant force in women’s duck pin bowling in the area over a 27-year period from1950 to 1977, Lucy Englebrecht was the 12th-ranked duck pin bowler in the United States in 1969. She was twice cited by the National Bowling Congress, in 1968 and 1973, for outstanding performances in league and tournament participation. She was ranked number one in Washington County for eight consecutive years, establishing records in set and individual point totals. And she was five times a finalist in the bowling proprietors’ Association of America’s Prestigious Champions, holding a remarkable record by an equally remarkable lady.
