Age 92, Volleyball

A self-described offense-first player, Pitti has no time for defense. "I like to score," says the oldest member of the Hemet (Calif.) Hot Flashes, a senior team that competes in tournaments around the state. Pitti picked up volleyball in high school during the 1930s and returned to competition at 55. Another favorite pastime: hunting. She and her late husband killed a 300-pound boar when she was 73. "Any sport I can get my hands on," she says, "I'll do."
