Hot Tickets: What to watch this week in prep sports

Five key non-football prep events to keep an eye on this week.

Five non-football high school sports events to keep an eye on this week:

Volleyball: Mount Vernon at Lake Stevens, 7 p.m. Tuesday. Lake Stevens, which has won 52 of its past 53 conference matches, can clinch its fourth consecutive Wesco 4A title with a victory. The Vikings (11-0, 11-0 Wesco 4A) have swept all but one match this season, the lone exception being a four-set win over Mount Vernon in their first meeting. The Bulldogs (8-3, 8-3) are tied with Jackson for second place in Wesco 4A.

Boys tennis: 3A Northwest District Tournament, 1 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday at Arlington H.S. The district’s top Class 3A singles players and doubles pairs compete for spots in next spring’s state tournament.

Cross country: Northwest District Championships, 10 a.m. Saturday at South Whidbey H.S. The district’s top runners and teams battle for a trip to the following weekend’s state championship meet in Pasco. The schedule for Saturday’s nine races: 4A girls (10 a.m.), 3A girls (10:35 a.m.), 4A boys (11:10 a.m.), 3A boys (11:40 a.m.), 2A girls (12:40 p.m.), 1A girls (1:20 p.m.), 2A boys (2 p.m.), 1A boys (2:35 p.m) and 2B/1B boys (3:10 p.m.).

Girls soccer: 4A Wes-King Bi-District first round, 2 p.m. Saturday at higher seeds. Wesco 4A’s No. 3-6 seeds and KingCo 4A’s No. 3-6 seeds square off in loser-out bi-district tournament matches. The winners would then need to win two more elimination matches to qualify for state.

Girls soccer: 3A Northwest District quarterfinals, Saturday at higher seeds. The winners of these district quarterfinal matches advance to the winner-to-state district semifinal round. The losers drop to the consolation bracket, where they would need to win three consecutive elimination matches to reach state.
