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

The Wesco 4A girls hoops rematch between Glacier Peak and Lake Stevens is among the highlights.

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.
