By now, you should be more than familiar with our series of regularly updating leaderboards for various Marquette Golden Eagles sports accomplishments. Keep checking back to that link in the previous sentence for our charts as the seasons continue to churn through history and MU’s various teams continue to create new memories and accomplishments.
Here, we take a look at the best career goals totals for women’s lacrosse.
We have to keep an eye on Marquette’s top four goal scorers from last year again this season. After six goals in the season opener against Cincinnati, Megan Menzuber has jumped from #7 all time to #5. She’s now just seven goals away from becoming MU’s fifth ever 100 goal scorer. Barring going full Human Torch and scoring six goals every game this year, Menzuber has no chance of coming close to Grace Gabriel’s program record, but second place is definitely doable as that’s just the 115 posted by Julianna Shearer.
Shea Garcia starts 2021 with 51 career goals in her first two seasons. A full 2020 would have moved her further up the list, of course, but it is what it is. Garcia did not play against the Bearcats, so her availability and thus her ceiling is up in the air. She averaged over two goals per game as a sophomore, so we’ll see what we get from her.
No one else is officially in the top 13 all time right now, but we have people inching closer. Caroline Steller scored twice against Cincinnati to move within three goals of Kenzie Brown in 13th place. She averaged 2.3 goals per game in 2020, so she can go rocketing up the chart if she can repeat that. Lydia Foust led MU in goals last year with 25 as a sophomore and three more against the Bearcats moved her to 32 in her career. She’s 15 away from Brown to officially move into the ranked area. Madison Kane is 20 goals away from Brown, which is definitely within shouting distance. She had 11 goals in 10 games in 2020, so her chase for the top 15 is going to be hurt by losing the rest of the season a year ago. Kane also did not play against UC, so we’ll have to wait and see if she can get on the field and chase after Brown.
Here’s the chart at the end of the 2021 season.
