Prep hot tickets: Jan. 2-Jan. 6

Here are four prep events to keep an eye on this week.

Four local prep events to keep an eye on this week:

1. Boys basketball: Monroe at Kamiak, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. The Bearcats are off to a fine start; they’re 8-1 and ranked in the various 4A state polls. The Knights (2-3) are off to a bit of a slow start, but know a win in this game could serve as a catalyst for the success they hope to have this season. Plus, anytime Monroe’s Colby Kyle and Kamiak’s Carson Tuttle step onto the same court, there’s bound to be a lot of highlights.

2. Girls basketball: Stanwood at Edmonds-Woodway, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. Right now, it’s pretty clear that these are two of the three best squads in Wesco 3A. This game is a study in contrasts — the Spartans (6-3) are led by seniors Ashley Alter, Jillian Heichel and Kaitlin Larson, while the Warriors (9-1) don’t have a senior.

3. Boys basketball: Cedar Park Christian (Mountlake Terrace) at Tulalip Heritage, 6:45 p.m. Friday. This game will surely help to determine the Northwest 1B League champion. The Lions had a 10-0 record, while the Hawks are 10-1. Cedar Park Christian as won its games by an average of 37.2 points per contest. Tulalip Heritage suffered its first loss of the season last Thursday to Taholah after winning its previous five games by an average of 33.2 points.

4. Boys wrestling: Japan vs. Local All-Stars, 7 p.m. Friday. This freestyle wrestling exhibition, to be held at Everett High School, will feature Japan’s junior national wrestling team competing against a team of area all-stars as part of a cultural exchange trip.
