Boys Lacrosse: Astros Lisauskas first repeat MVP in 9 years

Pinkerton senior midfield Jake Lisauskas made a tremendous comeback this year after tearing his ACL in the Astros’ regular season finale last year.

Lisauskas scored 40 goals, added 30 assists, collected 47 ground balls and led Pinkerton to a berth in the Division 1 state final against powerhouse Bishop Guertin.

For the second straight year, Lisauskas has been named The Eagle-Tribune boys lacrosse MVP. He’s the first repeat MVP since North Andover’s Jim Connolly. Like Connolly, he’ll be playing at UMass.

He finished as the ninth all-time scorer in Pinkerton’s proud history (since 1968) with career totals of 96 goals and 105 assists for 201 points. His career assist total ranks sixth in program history.

The 6-foot, 180-pounder from Derry was a four-year letterman and three-year starter for Pinkerton. He also started in football until the injury.

Bishop Guertin’s Dom St. Laurent, who will play at UMass Amherst with Lisauskas next year, said after this spring’s title game, “He’s a very explosive player. ... I was impressed with what I saw out here.”
