Prep hot tickets: Dec. 4-10

Here are 4 prep events to keep an eye on over the next week.

Four prep events to watch over the next week:

1 Girls basketball: Lynnwood at Jackson, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. Led by junior standouts Nakia Boston and Amayah Kirkman, Lynnwood looks to build on last year’s late-season surge that lifted the Royals into the Class 3A state regionals. Kirkman is off to a scorching start, scoring a combined 61 points in Lynnwood’s first two games. Wesco 4A contender Jackson is led by North Dakota State signee Olivia Skibiel and freshman Mackendra Konig, who scored 22 points in her high school debut last week.

2 Boys swimming: Shorecrest vs. Jackson, 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Shoreline Pool. Two perennial Wesco South contenders face off in an early-season conference dual meet. Jackson finished second in the Wesco South last year and sixth in the Class 4A state meet. Shorecrest finished third in the Wesco South and 15th in the 3A state meet.

3 Girls basketball: Lake Stevens at Edmonds-Woodway, 7:15 p.m. Friday. Two conference-title contenders clash in an intriguing non-league matchup. Edmonds-Woodway returns its top six scorers from last year’s team, which finished second in Wesco 3A. Lake Stevens, coming off a Wesco 4A title and Hardwood Classic appearance, is adjusting to the post-Kylee Griffen era after graduating the four-year standout.

4 Boys basketball: Lynden at Marysville Pilchuck, 7:15 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10. The Tomahawks play host to defending Class 2A state champion Lynden in a non-league showdown. The Lions, who graduated just two seniors from last season’s championship team, should provide a strong early-season test for a Marysville Pilchuck squad with Wesco 3A title aspirations.
