2013 GIRLS LACROSSE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
For the past few years, Amy Arnold has been a star for the Masconomet girls lacrosse team. Somehow, she managed to do it in a quiet way, never drastically outplaying or overshadowing other great players from the area.
As a senior, however, it was hard to overlook what Arnold meant to the Chieftains.
Arnold had another fantastic season, scoring 71 goals and adding 19 assists. She was the team leader in goals and was among the top two or three Masconomet players in virtually every other category. She was second in ground balls (51), pass blocks (15), draw controls (54), and caused turnovers (15).
Her outstanding on-field performance led to being named a United State Lacrosse All-American. In addition, Arnold was named the Cape Ann League Division 1 Player of the Year and was also selected as an Eastern Mass. Girls Lacrosse Coaches’ Association All-Star.
As Masco’s senior captain Arnold had some huge games this season, but none bigger than her seven-goal explosion in a 14-5 victory over Acton-Boxborough in the Division 2 North quarterfinals.
Arnold was recruited to play at the University of Florida, where she’ll spend the next four years.
