Bothell and Inglemoor’s softball squads notched victories in the 4A Wes-King District playoffs on May 10 at Phil Johnson Fields in Everett.
The Cougars defeated Redmond, 6-5, in their first game backed by a homer from Rylee Kim and doubles from Charley Bishop, Izzy Brandolini and Katie Fodge.
Redmond led 5-0 after three innings, and Bothell tallied four runs in the fourth and two in the fifth.
In the nightcap, Glacier Peak beat Bothell, 14-10, and the Cougars will take on North Creek at 5 p.m. May 15 in a loser-out game.
Against Glacier Peak, Tatum Powers had two doubles, Brooke Davis had two hits and two RBIs, Morgan Schults had two hits and four RBIs and Kelsey Fortney had two hits.
In an interesting scenario, Bothell coach Fred Miller’s daughter, Makayla, pitched for Glacier Peak. He said it’s the first time he’s ever coached against his daughter and it made for an awkward situation, the Cougar skipper added with a laugh.
Inglemoor triumphed over Monroe, 16-7, in its first game of the evening.
Sophia Fike hammered two homers and Maddy Brown notched a long ball as well. Brown and Camryn Scott had three hits apiece.
In the Vikings’ nightcap, Eastlake beat the locals, 11-10.
For Inglemoor, O’nalisa Hall nailed a grand slam and Kennadi Wuebel and Hailey King also homered and Taylor Waara had four hits.

In an early game, Jackson beat North Creek, 4-0. Libby Peoples doubled for the Jaguars.
