2018 Women’s NCAA Lacrosse Goalie Stick Setups

A few weeks ago we took a look at 2018 NCAA men’s goalie stick setups. Now it’s only fair that we see how the top 20 female counterparts setup their wands.

Here are the top 20 female NCAA D1 schools, their associated lacrosse goalies, and the stick head, mesh, and shaft length for each goalie.

These top 20 rankings are taken from March 24th, 2018 so they’ll probably be different by the time you read this post.

There you have it. The current top 20 NCAA female teams along with their goaltender and that goalie’s weapon of choice.

I’m not as familiar with the women’s teams but some checking the box scores of several games, it appears that several teams like James Madison and Princeton split time amongst their goalies. So we have 22 goalies in total.

Here’s how the numbers break down:


  • STX Eclipse – 7
  • STX Eclipse 2 – 4
  • Warrior Nemesis 2 – 3
  • Under Armour Headline – 3
  • Brine Eraser – 2
  • Brine Eraser 2 – 2
  • STX Shield – 1


  • 12 Diamond – 22


  • Attack Length – 19
  • Mid Length – 3

Interesting that not as many female goalies have made the switch from the STX Eclipse to the new STX Eclipse II.

In analyzing these photos I saw nothing but 12 diamond mesh. Interesting no 17 diamond made it in there.

The most popular female stick setup is an STX Eclipse with 12 diamond mesh on an attack length shaft.

As always feel free to send me any corrections via the comments down below.

Until next time! Coach Damon

    I just recently found your site! I have enjoyed everything you post. I played goalie 20 years ago and love watching my daughter have the same passion for the position.

  3. I believe for North Carolina you put the goalie name as Elise hennesey but you uploaded a photo of Taylor Moreno.
