Hot Tickets: What to watch this week in high school sports

Among the highlights: 2 key boys basketball matchups and a visit from Cashmere’s girls hoops phenom.

Five high school sports events to keep an eye on over the next week:

Boys swimming: Lake Stevens at Snohomish, 3:15 p.m. Thursday at Snohomish Aquatic Center. Five-time defending Wesco North champion Lake Stevens takes a streak of 52 consecutive league dual-meet victories into this clash against Snohomish. Both teams are unbeaten in Wesco North action, with Snohomish at 5-0 and Lake Stevens at 4-0.  

Boys wrestling: Everett at Stanwood, 7 p.m. Friday. This Wesco 3A North clash features a pair of top-15 teams in Washington Wrestling Report’s latest Class 3A state rankings. Stanwood (6-1, 2-0 Wesco 3A North) is ranked fourth and Everett (5-1, 1-1) is 14th. Stanwood has a pair of 3A top-ranked wrestlers in their respective weight classes: Isaac Ortega (138 pounds) and Riley Van Scoy (170 pounds).

Girls basketball: Cashmere at King’s, 3:30 p.m. Saturday. King’s (12-2) hosts one of the nation’s top players when five-star University of Louisville signee Hailey Van Lith and unbeaten Cashmere (13-0) visit for a 1A non-league showdown. Van Lith, the reigning Gatorade state player of the year, is ranked by ESPN as the nation’s No. 8 senior recruit. The ultra-talented guard trained this past summer with former NBA legend Kobe Bryant, who traveled to Cashmere earlier this month to watch her play.

Boys basketball: Mountlake Terrace at Marysville Pilchuck, 7:15 p.m. Saturday. Rescheduled because of last week’s inclement weather, this matchup between the past two Wesco 3A/2A champions could have significant league-title implications. Defending conference champion Marysville Pilchuck (10-2, 6-0 Wesco 3A/2A) is tied with Stanwood atop the league standings, while Mountlake Terrace (8-2, 4-1) is in third place.

Boys basketball: Mariner at Glacier Peak, 7:15 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27. Rescheduled because of last week’s inclement weather, this is the first of two pivotal regular-season showdowns between these Wesco 4A title contenders. Glacier Peak (12-0, 6-0 Wesco 4A) has outscored opponents by 27.9 points per game and Mariner (11-1, 6-0) is off to its best start since the 2007-08 season.
