MVP: Daziel repeats as state champ and MVP

For the second straight year, Kennedy Daziel helped lead Pinkerton to the Division 1 state title.

And for a second straight year, Daziel is The Eagle-Tribune girls lacrosse MVP.

The senior, who will play at Southern New Hampshire, scored 77 goals and added 32 assists this year to finish her three-year varsity career with 201 goals and 96 assists.

She holds the 16-year-old program’s records for most points in a season (114 last year) and most goals in a season (77 this year).

Daziel again was named to the Division 1 first team.

The quad-captain led Pinkerton with four goals in a 13-12 Division 1 title game win over top-seeded Souhegan when she was coached for the final time by her father, Rob Daziel.

“It’s bittersweet really with him coaching me for so long,” she said after the championship. “It’s going to be a little bit weird next year, but I know he’ll always be there supporting me.”

Her sister, Riann, was Pinkerton’s leading scorer in 2012 and now stars at Mount Olive (N.C.) College.
