Districts begin Thursday.

The Knights (12-9) host Timberline of the Western Cascade League at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the OWL tournament. The winner is the OWL No. 4 seed to districts, while the loser is eliminated.
King's West, meanwhile, beat Mount Vernon Christian 40-36 in the Class 2B Tri-District tournament Feb. 21 to rebound from a 43-29 first-round setback against La Conner.
The Lady Warriors (12-8) face either Orcas Island or Evergreen Lutheran at 4:45 p.m. Friday at Chief Leschi High School in Puyallup in a loser-out game. The winner secures a berth to the Class 2B state tournament, beginning March 4 in Spokane.
