The red-headed Mrs. Morris dominated the women's scene during the 1970s and appropriately enough was named Bowler of the Decade. She was Bowler of the Year in 1974 and 1977 and earned a first-team berth on the Woman Bowler magazine All-America team for seven consecutive seasons from 1973-74 to 1979-80. She won five USBC Women's Championships titles in seven years. She was a member of the 1974 champion team and won the all-events in 1976. She won both the singles and all-events in 1979 and set a record for earnings in a single USBC Women's Championships event. She won singles again in 1980. Mrs. Morris' average after 15 USBC Women's Championships appearances stood at 191. She topped the five-year Women's Championships average list for four consecutive years from 1978 to 1981. She topped the 10-year list in 1981. From the early 1970s through 1980 she won 17 professional tournaments.
