Bowler Robin Romeo started 1989 with dim prospects. She awoke in early January to find that she couldn't raise her bowling arm. The doctor called it a slight shoulder separation, caused by a bump or a pull. After a three-week layoff from the lanes, her fortunes took off in the other direction. She won the national championship, had the most titles, set the all-time single-year high earnings record and had two performance streaks that also are records in women's pro competition.
