The 2024 high school girls lacrosse season is scheduled to get underway this week for teams in Class 6A in the fourth full season as a sanctioned UHSAA sport. To prepare fans for the upcoming season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every team in 6A. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information.

The region rankings are based on coaches’ preseason projections.

There are six new girls lacrosse coaches in 6A this year: Nate Soriano (Layton), Ashtyn Stoor (Syracuse), Krista Call (Weber), Hannah Davis (American Fork), Michelle Buechner (Skyridge) and Calli Kassel (Westlake).
