The Redmond softball team will play Tuesday at 4 p.m. as the fifth seed in the eight-team 4A Kingco softball tournament at fourth-seeded Juanita.

Lake Washington will also play Tuesday as the third seed against No. 6 Bothell at 3:30 p.m.

Redmond finished out the 4A Kingco season 13-7 after splitting a pair of games this week, including a come-from-behind seventh-inning 7-1 victory against Ballard on Tuesday.

Redmond trailed 2-1 in the Kingco finale against Ballard going into the top of the seventh inning, when the Mustangs took advantage of two Beaver errors and scored six runs thanks to two hits in the inning by Taylor Adams and a two-run single by Lauren Nabseth.

Adams, a sophomore, had a career day, going 3-for-4 and Erika Hendron struck out 15 in a compete-game win.

Redmond fell to Woodinville, who tied Eastlake for the 4A Kingco crown, 7-0, on Monday.

Lake Washington beat Ballard, 10-0, on Monday and Bothell, 6-1, on Wednesday to finish the regular season at 15-5.

The 4A Kingco tournament started with a seventh-eighth place pigtail between Inglemoor and Roosvelt game on Friday. Woodinville and Eastlake, which tied for the 4A Kingco championship with an 18-2 mark, played a one-game playoff Thursday to determine who got the tournament’s only bye.
