A group of Long Island seniors has won the Wii Bowling National Senior Championship.
Four seniors from Bristal Assisted Living in Lake Grove won the national championship against Lakeland, Florida with a 1,645-1,550 victory.
And these seniors love a good competition. Two teammates happen to be married.
"I don't know if he really wants to see me win or if I'm the one who wants to see him win - but when we win, we always feel good for each other," said 87-year-old Louise Mangieri.
Other seniors and staff members came out to cheer the team on.
One member of the team says the activity gave him something to look forward to during the pandemic.
"It's been a really trying time for everyone. We didn't quit as a team, we have great leadership in the building," said 62-year-old Nick Montanino.
The competition began with 109 teams and these seniors are the last to compete in their division.
