The Redmond softball majors all-stars — a combined squad from Redmond West and Redmond North Little Leagues — rolled through the District 9 tournament undefeated and notched the championship with a 5-1 victory over Sammamish on June 23. The team advanced to state and will take on District 4 champion Cascade in the first round on June 29 in Poulsbo.

Redmond defeated Sammamish earlier in the tournament by the same score, and Sammamish battled back through the losers bracket of the double-elimination tourney for a rematch with Redmond.

For Redmond, Amanda Huang pitched all four tournament games, finishing with a 0.57 earned-run average, 33 strikeouts and only three walks in 22 innings pitched. Her battery mate, Cate Bowman, caught all four games and threw out three of the five baserunners that tried to steal.

At the plate, Redmond was powered by sluggers Zoe Aasgaarden and Anna Braukus, who combined to drive in 13 of the 31 runs scored by the team, including a two-run home run by Braukus that set the tone in a 12-1 win over Eastlake. Redmond’s plate discipline drew 21 walks over the four games, and when combined with the team’s 23 stolen bases against only two runners caught stealing, Redmond created its multitude of runs.
