Here is a look at some of the week’s top high school sports events.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday — Arbor View vs. Cimarron-Memorial , 3:30 p.m.
The Aggies and Spartans are jockeying for position in the Northwest League, as they currently hold the final two playoff spots. The winner of this series should be the No. 3 seed, with the loser at No. 4.
Monday — Rancho at Basic, 3:30 p.m.
A battle for the top spot in the Sunrise League. Rancho trounced the two-time defending state champs 16-4 when the teams met on April 7.
Monday — Coronado at Green Valley, 3:30 p.m.
Two teams in line for home playoff games from the Sunrise League. The Cougars won the first meeting 14-7 on April 7.
Friday — Rancho at Centennial, 3:30 p.m.
A nonleague tuneup for two playoff bound teams on the final day of the regular season.
Monday — Southeast League Match at Legacy, 11:30 a.m.
Coronado has rolled through the regular season, and this will be the Cougars’ final tuneup before the playoffs begin.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday — Durango vs. Desert Oasis, 3:30 p.m.
Desert Oasis has been tough to stop, and still could win the Southwest League, as the Diamondbacks trail league-leading Sierra Vista by a game. But Durango is no pushover, and is not out of the league title picture either. Tuesday and Thursday are at Desert Oasis, and Monday is at Durango.
Wednesday — Basic at Foothill, 3:30 p.m.
The Wolves’ final league game of the season, they can clinch the Southeast League title. The Falcons still are still for a first-round home game, and could use a boost against the Sunrise League leader heading into the postseason.
Wednesday — Liberty at Coronado, 3:30 p.m.
Both teams are still in the hunt for the Sunrise League title, and even if they weren’t, things also seem to mean a little more when these two rivals meet. Coronado won the first meeting of the year, 14-2.
SWIMMING AND DIVING

The final chance for area swimmers to achieve region qualifying times.
