Lacrosse Goalie Stick Setups: 2021 Female NCAA Division 1 Top 20

Two weeks ago we took a look at the stick setups of the goalies for the top 20 ranked teams on the men’s side. In this post, we’ll do the exact same thing for the female goalies. I’m super curious to see how the female stick setups compare.

The list of Top 20 teams was taken from Inside Lacrosse ranking as of April 21th, 2021. By the time you read this post the current female lacrosse top 20 might look very different as it continues to shape and morph all season long.

But as of right now, here are the top 20 teams, their goalies, and those lady goalie’s lacrosse stick setups.

Just like the men’s post I’m going to add in the shooting string setup because I find that fascinating.

A lot of people want to know which mesh they use and unfortunately just by looking at photos it’s tough to determine. Mesh Dynasty is about the only one you can tell because of their unique colors. Otherwise, the all white mesh all look alike.

In all honesty, I watch way more men’s lacrosse than women’s lacrosse so if you see any mistakes in this post, please leave me a comment down below.

Let’s get into it!

8. Virginia – Charlie Campbell

9. Jacksonville – Addy Tysdal

This seems to be the only photo of Addy available on the internet with a goalie stick and I can’t quite tell what that head is. Pretty sure it’s an STX Shield.

16. Johns Hopkins – Kathleen Garvey

17. Louisville – Rachel Florek

18. Richmond – Megan Gianforte

19. Rutgers – Alonna Gliksman

20. Arizona State – Berkeley Bonneau


There you have it – 20 female NCAA Division 1 starting goalies, 20 stick setups. Let’s recap the numbers.


  • STX Eclipse 2 – 14
  • STX Shield – 2
  • Under Armour Headline – 4


  • 12 Diamond – 20


  • Attack Length – 4
  • Goalie Length – 16


  • 3 Straight Across – 5
  • 1 Nylon, 2 U’s – 3
  • 1 Nylon, 2 Straight Across – 2
  • 2 Straight Across, 1 U – 2
  • 2 U’s – 2
  • 1 Nylon, 1 Straight Across – 2
  • 1 Nylon, 1 U – 1
  • 1 Straight Across, 2 U’s – 1
  • 2 Straight Across – 1
  • 1 Nylon, 1 Straight Across, 1 U – 1

My theory that the STX Eclipse 2 is the industry standard in goalie heads right now holds water on the women’s side too. 14 out of the top 20 goalies go with the Eclipse 2.

Interesting to see that 4 goalies go with the Under Armour Headline. No goalies on the male side choose to use this head.

Two lady goalies go with the STX Shield to round out the top 20.

All 20 goalies go with 12 diamond mesh. Clean sweep for the 12 diamond.

Most goalies choose the goalie length shaft which is slightly longer than attack shaft. Although from these pics I saw 4 goalies who use just a normal field player attack shaft for their wand.

In terms of the shooting strings setup, you can see there is a lot of variety.

The most common setup is 3 shooters straight across. 1 Nylon with 2 U’s was also pretty popular.

  1. Can you take this a step further? Do they use semi hard or semi soft? How deep are their pockets? What are there go to stringing patterns?

    1. That’s a little tough. I’m just working with the pics out there on the internets so not sure if they use semi hard or semi soft. Some pics show pocket depth but most don’t unfortunately.

  2. STX Eclipse, semi soft mesh, and 2 straight across Hockey laces, and a goalie length carbon fiber shaft.

    Six Eclipse 2, factory mesh, 2 straight across nylon shooters, and a cut down d-pole.
