Softball GAME TO WATCH
Shrewsbury at Hudson, Monday, 7 p.m.: One of the best teams in Central Mass. will host one of the hottest. Hawks lefty fireballer Jurnee Ware (10-0, 0.71 ERA) has been electric, allowing her team to qualify for postseason play in the minimum number of games. But Shrewsbury, led at the plate by senior Lauren Pickett and sophomore Erin LeMay, has consecutive wins over Marlborough, Wachusett, and Westborough, and looks to continue with Monday’s test.
