(KETK) One East Texas woman is an inspiration to her bowling team. Nita Johansen is 93-years-old and legally blind. But, she's led her team to a championship and she's still got it!

"I've just been bowling here and there and everywhere," said Johansen.

In 1952, she cut her hand on a window and her husband encouraged her to pick up a hobby to help get her strength back.

"My husband said you're losing all your muscles, we must do something and then he said let's start bowling a little bit."

She's now been bowling for more than 58 years.

"Bowling was 25 cents a line and the first year I bowled, I won first place in everything that they had (laughs)."
