One final playoff push

Mere days remain in the high school softball, baseball and lacrosse regular seasons.

It’s time to study who’s in and who’s out among the region’s high school teams.

In softball, there is plenty of work to be done.

In Division II, a hungry Milford High bunch, paced by Endicott-bound Raven Comtois, has taken care of business headed into the final two games of the regular season Thursday and Friday at 14-0.

The Spartans remember last year’s disappointment and are not about to let it happen again. At 10-4 with two left, Souhegan is right there in the mix, gunning for a playoff home game.

The Sabers have been sharp.

WLC, fresh off Lexi Balam rapping her 200th career hit, sits in second place in Division IV and might just be the one team to challenge unbeaten Epping.

Fifteen teams will make the Division II baseball field.

That most likely will leave Milford out of the postseason action at 4-11 with one left.

With games remaining vs. Pelham and ConVal, Souhegan most likely will need one win to qualify.

Sliding over to lacrosse roads, Souhegan is in fine shape in the Division I boys and girls ranks.

Goalie John Lohnes and Co. are 10-5 with two left, hoping for a top spot in the draw.

Maren Petropulos’ girls squad has been the surprise in Division I on the girls side this spring, currently at 12-2 with two to play.

The Milford High girls place in Division III and are right on the 12-team bubble with the finale against Plymouth left.

The Spartans are 5-8.

Milford’s boys, at 3-8, are in a similar position in the Division III boys ranks.

The NHIAA pairings will officially be out in all four sports right after the Memorial Day

Weekend.
