Thirty-three young sluggers spent four days at Hopkinton High School this last week working on their softball skills during the annual Hawks Softball Camp. Hopkinton’s varsity softball coach and athletic director led the camp, which, in its fourth year, had the kids fine-tuning the fundamentals with home run derbies and scrimmages that also emphasized learning how to be good teammates to each other.
