Hot Tickets: What to watch this week in prep sports

Two pivotal girls soccer matches — Jackson vs. GP and E-W vs. Arch. Murphy — highlight the action.

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

Girls soccer: Jackson at Glacier Peak, 7 p.m. Tuesday. Bolstered by the addition of three former U.S. Soccer Development Academy players, Glacier Peak opened Wesco 4A play with victories over Lake Stevens and Kamiak — the league’s second- and third-place teams last season. Next up is a showdown against perennial power Jackson, which has won five consecutive outright Wesco 4A titles.

Volleyball: Reach the Peak Tournament, 8 a.m. Saturday at Glacier Peak H.S. Glacier Peak hosts the annual Reach the Peak Tournament. Among the listed participants are Bishop Blanchet and Stanwood, who both were Class 3A state-tournament teams last season.

Girls swimming: Mukilteo Invitational, 9 a.m. Saturday at King County Aquatic Center (Federal Way). Kamiak hosts the annual Mukilteo Invitational at the site of November’s state championship meets. Twenty-eight teams participated in this event last year.

Girls soccer: Archbishop Murphy at Edmonds-Woodway, 3 p.m. Saturday. Defending Wesco 3A/2A champion Edmonds-Woodway is off to a 5-0-0 start, having outscored opponents 12-1. Archbishop Murphy, which finished third in the conference last year, should provide a strong test for the Warriors. The Wildcats are 3-1-1 with an 18-6 goal differential.
