Kayla Williams scored eight points in overtime as Ballard slipped past visiting Redmond 52-47 Friday night to claim a share of the KingCo 4A Mountain Division girls basketball championship.
The fourth-ranked Beavers (18-2 overall, 13-2 KingCo) rebounded from their loss to Roosevelt on Wednesday to tie the Roughriders for the division title. A coin flip today will determine which school gets the division's No. 1 seed in next week's Sea-King District tournament.
Ballard trailed 44-42 with 20 seconds left in regulation when Yordanos Kasahun hit a pair of free throws to force overtime.
Ballard's 6-foot-5 Jeanette Hansen had a season-high 18 points. Courtney Martin scored a game-high 25 for Redmond (15-6, 9-6), which also advances to the playoffs.
Eastlake 54, at Lake Washington 45
Ellie Martinez, a 5-9 junior, got nine of her season-high 26 points in the fourth quarter to help the Wolves (14-6, 9-5) hold off Lake Washington (11-9, 5-9) in a Lake Division finale.

Garfield made 27 of 40 free throws, Franklin 20 of 39. McManus scored 17, and Dillard-Brown had 10 points and 13 rebounds.
