Bridgewater-Raynham has claimed the top spot on this week’s Globe softball Top 20. Led by junior shortstop Madi Shaw and sophomore pitcher Sarah Dawson, the Trojans remain a perfect 10-0.
Reigning Division 1 champion Milford drops to the No. 2 slot. No. 3 North Attleborough handed the Scarlet Hawks their first loss of the season, a 1-0, 10-inning battle.
Danvers (No. 4) and Sandwich (No. 5) round out the top five. Both are still perfect.
Newcomers to the Top 20 include Case, Amesbury, Boston Latin and Masconomet. Case earned the No. 14 seed after defeating Fairhaven 9-0 last week, causing Fairhaven to drop from No. 3 to No. 15.

Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat.
