Jackson vs. Central Valley, 2 p.m.

Paired up with Central Valley (21-2). In same half of the bracket as Arlington.

NOTE: In 4A tournament, Bothell and Garfield, two top-ranked teams in 4A along with Jackson, meet at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday in Tacoma. Central Valley (No. 4) plays Jackson (No. 3) in another quarterfinals.

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.
