Milford’s Shannon Smith has had many accomplishments as a Scarlet Hawk and Wednesday night she added a few more. The Kentucky-bound hurler allowed two hits and struck out 17 in Milford’s 3-0 victory over Central Catholic in the Division 1 Eastern Mass final.
In five tournament games this spring, Milford has outscored its opponents, 24-0.
Smith became the first pitcher to top 1,200 career strikeouts when she extended her state-record total to 1,206. The reigning state champs will compete for the title again this year against the Marlboro-Agawam winner on Saturday at Worcester State. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
