Kaitlin Andrews, Hudson softball: Junior right-hander tosses a three-hitter in Hawks' 8-0 Division 2 Central quarterfinal win over Bartlett.

A look at today's top tournament matchups:

* St. John's Prep vs. Natick boys' volleyball: Redmen will have plenty of motivation in tonight's state semifinal at Hudson High, trying to avenge last year's 3-2 state final loss, in which Natick let a 13-8 Game 3 lead slip away.

* Andover at Lincoln-Sudbury baseball: Top-seeded Warriors (20-1) rolled over Cambridge 22-0 in playoff opener, but Andover will be a tougher test in Division 1 North quarterfinal.

* Hopkinton baseball at Oliver Ames: After 1-0 opening-round win over Dighton-Rehoboth, Hillers hit the road for Easton in a Division 2 South quarterfinal.

* Wellesley vs. King Philip girls' lacrosse: Perennial powers clash in a Division 1 South semifinal in Franklin at 6:30.

* Westborough vs. St. John's boys' tennis: Rangers attempt to register their third win this spring against St. John's in a Division 1 Central semifinal.

* Algonquin baseball vs. Leominster: Defending Division 1 state champs take on Leominster in a Division 1 Central semifinal at Tivnan tonight at 7. That follows the Milford-St. John's matchup at 4.
