Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury High School Colonials hosted the Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School Naps for their MIAA Baseball Central Division 1 first round game May 31 in Shrewsbury.

The Naps scored first to lead off the game, but then the Colonials’ starting pitcher Jeff Svendsen settled in.  However, it took the Colonials until the fifth inning to score, as they put three runs on the scoreboard.  Shrewsbury scored one more time in the sixth while Holy Name scored a run in the eighth.  Shrewsbury then brought in Jay Reynolds who earned the save in a 4-2 win.

The Colonials will now meet the St. John’s High School Pioneers in the quarter final round.
