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.
This time around, we’re looking at the women’s lacrosse all-time assists chart.
Last year, we saw three Golden Eagles record at least 13 assists even though the team only played 10 games. Let’s be honest about it: 13 assists is one of the 15 best careers in Marquette women’s lacrosse history! That’s amazing work for just 10 games, and the fact that there were three women pulling that off is pretty great.
If you took a peek at our updates on points and goals, then the names that we’re about to talk about here won’t be surprises to you. Megan Menzuber is currently #5 all time in assists with 39 after dishing three in the season opener against Cincinnati. Madison Kane sits in eighth place all time with 22 and Caroline Steller rounds out the active Golden Eagles in the top 10 with 21 in ninth place. There’s a big jump from where Menzuber is — 39 — and fourth place where Riley Hill has 67 career assists. At her 2020 pace, Menzuber could be good for another 20 assists this year, but that would still leave her short of Hill. There’s not that much space between Steller in ninth and Allison Lane’s sixth best total of 26, though, so Kane and Steller could easily jump up right behind their current teammate.
We’re also keeping an eye on Shea Garcia, who sits at #13 all time with 14 career assists. She needs just four to pass Charlotte McGuire to get into the top 10. Lydia Foust’s two assists against Cincinnati moved her into a tie with Emily Donovan and Kenzie Brown for the 15th most in program history. Caroline Peterson had four assists in 10 games last season to give her six in her career. She’s knocking on the door of the top 15, so we’ll wait and see what she can contribute this year.
IN-SEASON UPDATE! We’ve added Lindsey Hill to the list, as she’s posted 10 assists this season alone to jump into the top 15 all time with 15 career assists. We’re also putting Leigh Steiner on the list, as her eight assists this year as a redshirt freshman have her knocking on the door to pass Kenzie Brown in 18th place. Y’know, we might have to trim this list down into a top 15 when the season ends, but that’s an issue for the future.
Here’s how the all-time chart looks at the end of the 2021 season.
