NOTE: So here’s the plan for local fans. Plan on getting to the Tacoma Dome at 11:15 a.m. to catch the second half of Bothell-Garfield. Then watch Arlington-Richland afterwards on the same court. At 2 p.m., sit near the divider and watch Jackson-Central Valley boys and Glacier Peak-Bellevue girls. Take a quick break for a snack and catch the Arlington-Gonzaga Prep girls at 3:45 p.m. and Lake Stevens-Kentwood girls right after on the same court. For dessert enjoy Mountlake Terrace’s rematch against Lincoln. Go home sleep and do it all over again Friday.
