Prep hot tickets: Jan. 22-26

Five prep sports events to watch for this week.

Five prep sports events to keep an eye on this week:

Girls basketball: Glacier Peak at Lake Stevens, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. This Wesco 4A rematch carries massive league-title implications. Glacier Peak is unbeaten in conference play and holds a one-game lead over second-place Lake Stevens, which is seeking revenge after losing by 18 points to the Grizzlies last month.

Girls basketball: Shorecrest at Archbishop Murphy, 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. This matchup factors significantly into the Wesco 3A/2A title race, with both teams part of a four-way tie atop the loss column of the conference standings with one defeat apiece.

Boys basketball: Arlington at Marysville Pilchuck, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday. With a victory, Marysville Pilchuck would be on the doorstep of clinching the Wesco 3A/2A crown. The Tomahawks are unbeaten in conference play and hold a two-game lead in the loss column over both Arlington and Stanwood, which square off in their annual rivalry game Friday night.

Boys swimming: Jackson vs. Kamiak, 2:30 p.m. Thursday at WEST Coast Aquatics (Mill Creek). With both teams taking unbeaten records into the final week of dual-meet competition, this showdown will determine the Wesco South title for a fifth consecutive season. Over the past four years, these two programs have combined for seven top-10 team finishes at the Class 4A state meet.

Boys wrestling: Marysville Pilchuck at Stanwood, 5:45 p.m. Thursday. Unbeaten Marysville Pilchuck faces Oak Harbor on Tuesday before squaring off with one-loss Stanwood in this regular-season finale. With a pair of victories this week, the Tomahawks would finish with a perfect record in Wesco 3A North duals for a third straight season.
