Posted by Craig Larson, Globe Staff June 9, 2007 08:05 AM


Highlighting the top performances from Friday's state tournament action:

Samantha Zetlin and Jenny Jones, Framingham girls' lacrosse: Sophomore attack Zetlin and senior attack Jones netted three goals apiece to power defending state champion Flyers to their fourth straight Division 1 North title, a 13-4 win over previously unbeaten Lincoln-Sudbury.

Kevin Scalan, Lincoln-Sudbury baseball: In a gutsy 149-pitch effort, the senior southpaw tossed his ninth shutout in 10 starts, blanking St. John's Prep on five hits in the Warriors' 6-0 Division 1 North semifinal win. The Warriors face Peabody in tonight's North final at Lelacheur Park in Lowell at 7.

Westborough boys' tennis: The Rangers ended the 11-year reign of St. John's Shrewsbury as districtchamps, beating the Pioneers 4-1 in the Division 1 Central final, Westborough's third win over St. John's this season.

C.J. Estes and Matt Schairer, Medfield boys' lacrosse: Estes, a senior attack collected four goals and four assists while Schairer netted six goals to power the Warrors to a 16-8 win over Wellesley in the Division 2 South final.

A look at today's top tournament games:

* Bay State Conference boys' volleyball rivals Natick (20-1) and Newton North (14-6) clash for the third time this season, but this afternoon (Hudson High, 4 p.m.), the winner will take home the state title.
