LYNNFIELD — The Cape Ann League girls’ lacrosse coaches recently met to select their All-Star teams. Two members of the Lynnfield High team received the postseason honors.

Those two are the Valiton sisters, Taylor and Hayden.

Taylor Valiton made the CAL First-Team All-Stars for the second year in a row. It is her third postseason honor as she made the CAL Second-Team All-Stars as a freshman.



The attacker-midfielder scored a team-high 97 goals to go with 11 assists for 108 points. She was fourth on the team in assists.

The junior captain also led the Pioneers in draw controls with 148.

“She exceeded our expectations this season,” said Pioneers head coach Christina Serra. “We would not have won as many games without her. She is a very good player and she leads by example.”

Hayden Valiton, who also plays midfielder and attacker, made the Second-Team. She was second on the team in scoring with 81 goals. She also had 26 assists which was also second on the team behind fellow freshman, Ava Damiani, who had 33.



“I think that being a freshman made it harder to make the First-Team,” said Serra. “She improved immensely since the start of the year and her stats were better than some of the players selected to the first team.”

She was also second on the team in draw controls with 98.

After beating North Reading, 16-12, in the first round of the MIAA Division 4 state tournament, the Pioneers lost to host Ipswich, 17-10, in the Round of 16 game on June 5.

Ipswich went to the Div. 4 championship game before losing to Cohasset 14-9.

Lynnfield finished the year at 10-12 overall. The Pioneers were 5-8 in the Cape Ann League as they came in fourth place in the CAL Baker Division.
