Four local prep events to keep an eye on this week:
Soccer: Kamiak vs. Jackson, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Everett Memorial Stadium. This Wesco 4A matchup of unbeatens should provide a good early-season measuring stick for the upstart Timberwolves. Jackson, which hasn’t won more than five matches in a season since 2012, is off to a 4-0 start and has outscored its opponents 23-2. Kamiak, a 4A state quarterfinalist last year, is 4-0 and has allowed only one goal this season.
Baseball: Edmonds-Woodway at Arlington, 4 p.m. Wednesday. This Wesco 3A showdown is a rematch of last year’s state quarterfinals, when Edmonds-Woodway beat Arlington 8-7 in a 10-inning thriller. It was the second consecutive state quarterfinal loss for the Eagles, who were seeking their first-ever semifinal berth.
Softball: Jackson at Monroe, 4 p.m. Friday. Both teams reached the 4A state tournament last season. And both are off to dominant 6-0 starts this year, combining to outscore their opponents 127-16. Jackson junior Iyanla Pennington hasn’t allowed an earned run in 32 innings pitched, and has struck out 69 batters while yielding just seven hits. It will be the second big game in three days for Monroe, which plays host to defending Wesco 4A champion Lake Stevens on Wednesday.
Girls golf: Wesco 4A meet, 2 p.m. Wednesday at Kenwanda Golf Course. The eight Wesco 4A teams gather at the same location for the first time this spring. The league favorite is Kamiak, which returned all four state qualifiers from last year’s team that placed third in the 4A state tournament.
