    Evitts, who also finished second in the Robby's Vernon Hills Women's Open in March, finished with 2,791 pins and earned $650.

    A sixth U.S. Women's Open entry was awarded to Jan A. Schmidt of Hales Corners, Wis., for being the highest earnings winner who had not already earned a U.S. Women's Open entry after the five events.

    Armon and Schmidt will be joined in Texas by series representatives: Lori Colclasure of Grayslake, Ill., Hammer Illinois Women's Open; Patti Schultz of Braidwood, Ill., Ebonite Joliet Women's Open; Terysa Wojnar of Chicago, Track Wisconsin Women's Open and Joey Biondo of Carpentersville, Ill., Robby's Vernon Hills Women's Open.
