Looking ahead at the week in high school sports

Updated December 31, 2017 - 3:55 pm

Here is a look at some of the week’s top high school sports events.

BOYS BASKETBALL

Wednesday — Del Sol at Eldorado, 6:30 p.m.

The Dragons head to Class 4A Eldorado to play the upstart Sundevils, who are off to a 7-3 start and played in the Las Vegas Prep Championship title game on Friday.

Friday — Centennial at Faith Lutheran, 6:30 p.m.

The Bulldogs visit the Crusaders, who currently sit atop the Northwest League standings with a 12-1, 2-0 record.

Thursday —Virgin Valley at Pahranagat Valley, 5 p.m.

The Bulldogs make the trek to Alamo for a date with the Class 1A favorite Panthers.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Friday — Centennial at Faith Lutheran, 5 p.m.

The top-ranked Bulldogs already have lost a couple games to out-of-state opponents, and that doesn’t bode well for area teams. Centennial travels to face a Crusaders team looking for one of the Northwest League’s four playoff spots.

Saturday — Durango at Green Valley, 4:30 p.m.

The Trailblazers hope to secure one of the Southwest League’s four playoff spots, and this will be a good non-conference test. Though the team has missed a pair of starters the past couple of weeks, Green Valley is expected to be a playoff team in the Southeast League.

FLAG FOOTBALL

Friday — Mustang Rodeo at Shadow Ridge, 3 p.m.

The only flag football event of the week, the Mustangs host Arbor View, Bonanza and others in a tournament.

WRESTLING

Thursday —Wolves Rumble at Basic, 9 a.m.

Basic welcomes Coronado, Foothill, Sierra Vista, SLAM Academy and Lincoln County in for a Thursday match-up before school gets going again.

Friday — Bulldog Grappler at Centennial, 9 a.m.

Seeing Las Vegas and Centennial go head-to-head will be a treat for valley wrestling fans. Bonanza, Liberty and Palo Verde are scheduled to compete as well.
