Prep hot tickets: Sept. 4-Sept. 7

Here are four prep events to keep an eye on this week as the fall season begins in earnest.

Here are four local non-football events to keep an eye on this week as the fall prep sports season gets underway:

BOYS TENNIS: Snohomish at Jackson, 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Two of the area’s top teams in recent years square off in a non-league showdown. Jackson and Snohomish have gone a combined 89-7 in dual matches over the past three seasons, with four of those losses coming against each other. The T-wolves have won 34 consecutive dual matches, with their last loss coming to Snohomish in 2015.

GIRLS SOCCER: Archbishop Murphy at Stanwood, 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The Wildcats make their Wesco 3A debut against Stanwood, which finished second in the league last season. Archbishop Murphy, which moved to Wesco 3A for conference play in all sports except football, has been one of the top Class 2A girls soccer programs in the state for much of the past decade-plus.

VOLLEYBALL: Snohomish at Edmonds-Woodway, 7 p.m. Thursday. Coming off an eighth-place finish at last year’s 3A state tournament, the Panthers open their season with a conference clash against Edmonds-Woodway. Snohomish tied for second place in Wesco 3A last season and Edmonds-Woodway tied for fourth.

GIRLS SOCCER: Edmonds-Woodway at Snohomish, 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Defending Wesco 3A champion Snohomish opens its conference slate with a key matchup against Edmonds-Woodway, which handed the Panthers their only league loss last season. Snohomish also has intriguing non-league matches against crosstown rival Glacier Peak on Tuesday and Wesco 4A powerhouse Jackson on Saturday.
