Hot tickets: Four prep events to keep an eye on this week

Four prep sports events to keep an eye on this week:

Boys basketball: Jackson at Glacier Peak, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. This Wesco 4A rematch could very well determine the conference title. Jackson is atop the league standings with an unbeaten Wesco 4A record and holds a one-game lead over second-place Glacier Peak. In a wild first meeting earlier this month, the T-wolves took a 16-point lead into the fourth quarter before fending off a furious Grizzlies comeback to hold on for a 63-59 win.

Girls bowling: State championships, Thursday-Saturday at Narrows Plaza Bowl (University Place). Jackson’s team qualified for the state tournament after taking first place in the district tournament team standings. Cascade’s Paris Smith qualified for state as an individual after bowling a 403 series in the district tournament.

Girls basketball: Snohomish at Arlington, 7:15 p.m. Friday. This showdown has massive Wesco 3A/2A title implications, with Snohomish and Arlington in a three-way tie with Archbishop Murphy atop the conference standings. Both teams also have a matchup with fifth-place Marysville Getchell remaining on their league schedules.

Cheerleading: State championships, Friday-Saturday at Battle Ground H.S. The state competition includes 10 local teams: Cascade, Everett, Kamiak, Lynnwood, Meadowdale, Monroe, Oak Harbor, Cedar Park Christian, Coupeville and Sultan. Monroe and CPC are set to compete in two categories, while the other squads each will compete in one.
