Prep sports recap: Highlights, storylines from the past week

League champs were crowned in wrestling and boys swim, and basketball league-title races are heating up.

The Seagulls finished tied with Stanwood atop the Wesco 3A North with 5-1 league records, but captured the title by virtue of their head-to-head tiebreaker from beating the Spartans the previous week.

The Kamiak boys swim and dive team secured its third consecutive Wesco South title with a 110-76 win over fellow perennial power Jackson on Thursday.

Overtime upsets in boys basketball

The Arlington and Lake Stevens boys basketball teams rallied for overtime upset victories over league-title contenders Friday night.

Arlington (10-7, 6-5 Wesco 3A/2A) rallied from a 14-point third-quarter deficit to force overtime and handed the Spartans their first Wesco 3A/2A loss of the season, leaving Marysville Pilchuck as the league’s only remaining unbeaten in conference play.

Lake Stevens, meanwhile, rallied from a six-point deficit in the final two minutes of regulation and stunned Mariner, 76-74 in overtime. With the victory, the Vikings (5-12, 4-7 Wesco 4A) avenged a 24-point loss to the Marauders (14-3, 9-2) on Jan. 8.
