The list of Top 20 teams was taken from Inside Lacrosse ranking as of May 3, 2023. By the time you read this post the current men’s top 20 might look very different as it continues to shape and morph all season long.
Let’s get into it! If you see any errors in this post, leave me a comment down below.
The Boston College Eagles handed over the reigns to freshman Shea Dolce around mid season and its clear to see why.
While Rachel Hall was a great goalie (a national champ even!), the powerhouse Eagles knew that something special with Dolce. She’s so explosive inside that 6×6 and has some great size to keep that rubber ball out of the goal.
Shea is laced up with one of the Sidewall Jedi’s black hole devices with the ghost pocket!
This is the last year for Florida senior Sarah Reznick and she’s trying to go out with a bang.
The feisty and quick New Yorker is a having a strong season for the Gators earning an IL mid-season 3rd team All-American selection.
She’s 4th in the NCAA in save percentage at .527 and 17th in GAA at 9.51 goals per game.
Sarah is a Lax Goalie Rat sponsored athlete which means we signed an NIL Deal to create some awesome lacrosse goalie training for the youth. Proceeds go directly to support Sarah and your young goalie gets a great mentor! Win-Win!
Reining goalie of the year Emily Sterling hasn’t put up the mind blowing numbers like she did last year. But she’s as good as they come in the goalkeeper position!
At 13-5 her team as faced some adversity this season but could be poised to win a Big 10 and a national championship.
Emily continues to use the custom dyed UA Command that she used all last season. During a Q&A from her college goalie training pack, one young goalie asked Emily if that stick had another season of life left in it. The answer was yes.
Sterling also talked about the importance of the red tape on her stick. A visual focal point she can come back to when her mind starts to wonder.
Emily is a Lax Goalie Rat sponsored athlete meaning we partnered together on an NIL deal to release some insanely cool lacrosse goalie trianing content for the youth. Check out it out here!
The women’s Cavaliers team have split a lot of time at the goalie position with senior Ashley Vernon logging significant minutes.
Ash is a Lax Goalie Rat sponsored athlete which means she put together an awesome college goalie training full of coaching and mentoring for the young goalies out there. Because of our NIL deal proceeds go directly to support Ashley.
Kait Devir was named Pac-12 Co Goalie of the Year for her efforts this season manning the pipes for lady Trojans.
KD helped her team to a 14-3 record this season as they enter the Pac-12 conference tournament.
Kait is a Lax Goalie Rat sponsored athlete meaning we put together some amazing virtual coaching and mentoring for the youth goalies. Imagine your young goalie getting coaching directly from Kait herself. Well, no need to imagine it, it’s here.
Here is a save edit from earlier in the season featuring Kait Devir:
Lacrosse is my passion! The game has given me so much and this blog is my way of giving back to the lax community. Specifically the most bad a$$ part of that community - the goalies! After learning to play goalie from scratch, I wanted to create a site where I could share what I learned with others so they too can become champions in the crease and in life. Learn more about Coach Damon.
