Over the weekend, Mansfield's own Brenda Padilla took part in the PBA-PWBA XTRA Frame Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles tournament, held at Palace Lanes in Houston. The finals took place on Sunday, with Padilla placing 16th alongside partner Xeno Garcia, of Fort Worth. The duo won $1,300 for bowling a 4,920. Final match play standings include 12 games of play.

The tournament also serves as a fundraiser in support of The Rose, a Houston-based organization that helps women who can’t afford breast care treatment or mammograms, as well as the Huntsman Group, a cancer research based in Utah. More than $74,000 was raised this year. Over its 16-year history, the tournament has raised more than $725,000 to fight breast cancer.

Padilla was a member of Team USA in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011, and currently competes in the PWBA. Her milestones according to the PWBA:
