USC Lacrosse Hires Asa Goldstock to Complete Coaching Staff
LOS ANGELES – The USC lacrosse program has hired Asa Goldstock—an All-American goaltender at Syracuse—to complete its coaching staff, head coach Lindsey Munday announced on Thursday, July 29.
"We are thrilled to welcome Asa to the Trojan Lacrosse family," said Munday. "She brings on-field experience at the highest level, after leading one of the top defensive units in the country. I am so excited for her to now help lead, grow, and teach our players."
Goldstock was a third-team IWLCA All-America choice as a graduate student-athlete at Syracuse and helped the Orange to an NCAA runner-up finish in 2021.
Goldstock concluded her collegiate career as Syracuse's all-time leader in saves (663). In 2021, she ranked ninth in the nation in saves (151) and 12th in goals-against average (9.86) as was part of the nation's 15th-ranked defense and was chosen as the US Lacrosse, IWLCA, and ACC Defensive Player of the Week following an 11-save performance against Stony Brook; one of five games in which she reached double-digit saves. Goldstock was named to both the NCAA and ACC All-Tournament Teams and helped the Orange earn a No. 2 ranking in the final IWLCA poll.
She was a 2021 All-ACC second-team selection, an ACC All-Academic Team member, and was named to the IWLCA's All-Northeast Region Team. In her final season, she was chosen for ACC Defensive Player of the Week honors for the third time in her career.
In her five-year career with the Orange, Goldstock played in 88 games with over 85 starts and spent 4,596 minutes between the pipes. She went 56-24 overall and finished with an 11.33 career goals-against average with 647 saves and a .427 save percentage (2,063 shots faced). She also collected 194 ground balls and caused 40 turnovers. Goldstock produced 23 games with double-digit saves including a career high of 17 saves. She also reached a career-best seven ground balls twice.
As a high school athlete, Goldstock was a 2016 US Lacrosse All-American and led the New Hampton School (New Hampshire) to back-to-back Lakes Region championships. Goldstock graduated from Syracuse with a degree in sport venue and event management from the Falk School of Sport and Human Dynamics.
In 2021, the USC lacrosse team went 9-7 overall with a 6-3 record in the Pac-12 to finish the regular season in second place in the league standings. USC faced Colorado and fell by a single goal in the conference tournament semifinal. Ninth-year head coach Lindsey Munday earned her 110th career victory during the season. Kelsey Huff was named the Pac-12 Midfielder of the Year and Madison Waters was chosen as the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.
