Seven high school sports events to keep an eye on over the next week:
Girls basketball: Lake Stevens at Glacier Peak, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. This rematch between Wesco 4A’s top two teams carries massive league-title implications. Glacier Peak (13-2, 9-0 Wesco 4A) is atop the conference standings and beat Lake Stevens 66-52 in their first matchup earlier this month. Lake Stevens (11-3, 7-1) is second in Wesco 4A. Both teams have cruised past the rest of their league opponents.
Boys wrestling: Stanwood at Snohomish, 7 p.m. Tuesday. Stanwood (6-2, 2-1 Wesco 3A North) faces unbeaten Snohomish (7-0, 4-0) in the first of two key league dual meets this week for the Spartans. Stanwood is No. 4 in Washington Wrestling Report’s latest Class 3A state rankings and Snohomish is No. 19.
Boys swimming: Jackson at Kamiak, 3:15 p.m. Thursday. This always-anticipated showdown could very well determine the Wesco South title for the sixth consecutive year. Both teams are unbeaten in Wesco South dual meets, with Jackson at 8-0 and two-time defending league champion Kamiak at 6-0.
Boys wrestling: Marysville Pilchuck at Stanwood, 7 p.m. Thursday. Stanwood hosts three-time defending Wesco 3A North champion Marysville Pilchuck in the Spartans’ second key dual meet of the week. Stanwood is No. 4 in Washington Wrestling Report’s latest 3A state rankings and Marysville Pilchuck (5-2, 2-2) is tied for No. 11.
Girls basketball: Meadowdale at Shorecrest, 7:15 p.m. Thursday. This is a key matchup in the Wesco 3A/2A race. Shorecrest (12-1, 6-1 Wesco 3A/2A) is tied in the loss column with Arlington atop the league standings and owns the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Eagles. Meadowdale (11-4, 7-2) is among a pair of two-loss teams in conference play. It’s a rematch of the Mavericks’ upset victory over Shorecrest in a winner-to-state, loser-out contest last season.
Boys basketball: Arlington at Stanwood, 7:15 p.m. Friday. The rivals from opposite sides of the Stillaguamish River square off in their annual hardwood clash. Stanwood (12-2, 8-0 Wesco 3A/2A) entered Monday night as one of just two remaining unbeatens in conference play, with Marysville Pilchuck being the other. Arlington (9-5, 5-3) entered Monday night tied for fifth place in Wesco 3A/2A.
Boys basketball: Marysville Pilchuck at Meadowdale, 7:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3. Meadowdale is among the few remaining key tests standing between Marysville Pilchuck and back-to-back Wesco 3A/2A titles. The Tomahawks (13-2, 9-0 Wesco 3A/2A) are one of just two remaining unbeatens in conference play. Meadowdale (8-6, 6-2) is tied with Mountlake Terrace for third place in Wesco 3A/2A.
