Local prep hoop fans will need their heads on a swivel to catch all the action this week as the boys and girls basketball teams from the four Edmonds School District high schools all have tournament games over the next few days.

The girls get post-season play started on Wednesday, Feb. 8, as the Lynnwood Royals host the Everett Seagulls in a loser-out 3A tourney play-in game, the Meadowdale Mavericks travel to Shorewood to face the Thunderbirds in a loser-out 3A tourney play-in game, and the Mountlake Terrace Hawks face the Sedro Woolley Cubs in a loser-out 2A tourney game in Sedro Woolley.

The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors girls’ squad joins the action on Thursday when they host the winner of the Meadowdale-Shorewood contest in a 3A district tournament quarterfinal tilt.

The Meadowdale and Lynnwood boys jump into postseason play on Thursday when they match up in a 3A tournament loser-out play-in game at Meadowdale High School.

The Edmonds-Woodway and Mountlake Terrace boys will have to wait until Saturday, Feb. 10, for their first postseason action. The Warriors will take on Stanwood at home in a 3A district tourney quarterfinal game; the Hawks — the no.1 seed in the District 1/2 2A Boys Basketball Tournament — will host either Sehome or Sedro Woolley in a district quarterfinal game.

And while E-W, Meadowdale, Lynnwood and Terrace will get most of the attention this week, the Cedar Park Christian – Mountlake Terrace Lions will also be hitting the hardwood for tournament play. The Lions have already defeated two opponents in the District 1 1B Boys Basketball Tournament and will play for the district crown on Wednesday against the Tulalip Heritage Hawks in Bellingham.

The Lions have advanced to the upcoming District 1/2/3 1B Tri-District Tournament that begins on Saturday, Feb. 10.
