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

Key late-season basketball matchups and the girls bowling state championships take center stage.

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

Girls basketball: Shorecrest at Edmonds-Woodway, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. This appears to be the toughest remaining test for Shorecrest, which can claim the Wesco 3A/2A title by winning its final four regular-season games. Sitting at 9-1 in conference play, the Scots are tied atop the Wesco 3A/2A loss column with Arlington and hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Eagles. Edmonds-Woodway is in a four-way tie for third place at 8-3.

Girls basketball: Arlington at Snohomish, 7:15 p.m. Thursday. This is the toughest remaining test for Arlington, which likely needs to win each of its final three regular-season games to stay in contention for the Wesco 3A/2A crown. The Eagles are 10-1 in league play, while Snohomish is in a four-way tie for third place at 8-3.

Girls bowling: State championships, Thursday-Saturday at Narrows Plaza Bowl (University Place). Cascade’s team qualified for the Class 4A state tournament after taking first place at its district competition. Jackson is sending a pair of individuals to the 4A state tournament.

Cheerleading: State championships, Friday-Saturday at Battle Ground H.S. Eight local teams are headed to the state competition: Cascade, Jackson, Kamiak, Lynnwood, Monroe, Mountlake Terrace, Oak Harbor and Sultan.

Boys basketball: Stanwood at Marysville Pilchuck, 7:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10. Depending on both teams’ results this week, this regular-season finale could be a de facto Wesco 3A/2A championship game. Entering Monday night, Marysville Pilchuck was atop the conference standings at 11-0 in league play. Stanwood was alone in second place at 10-1.
