Taylor Frieling: I just go out there every single game and try to give it my all

If there’s one thing senior Taylor Frieling is passionate about, it’s lacrosse. She has played four seasons on the Wayland High School varsity lacrosse team and will go on next year to play lacrosse for Union College in Schenectady, New York.

“Lacrosse was always something I was really interested in,” Frieling said. “I’ve always been interested in doing team sports rather than track or another sport where you just have individual players. I like the unity of it and everyone working together.”

Frieling has played lacrosse since she was in the third grade. Her older sister inspired her to start.

“My sister played all throughout her life, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I want to play too,’” Frieling said. “I started with all my friends. It was really fun, and it motivated me to keep going.”

Frieling previously played the position of attack, an offensive position, but currently she plays defense. She switched over while playing for a club team.

“It’s not like one of those positions like midfield or attack where you get all the recognition, and you get the stats and everything,” Frieling said. “Everyone has to go through you. I just like being able to do that, being able to stop the ball.”

Since starting she is most proud of improving her footwork, as well as filling a leadership role on the team.

“Just being quick on my feet and able to stop the ball is huge,” Frieling said.

Frieling doesn’t consider any one game she has played in high school to be her best.

“Truthfully I don’t really remember a lot of the games,” Frieling said. “They all blend together for me, but I just go out there every single game and try to give it my all.”

From her point of view, this year’s team is doing well.

“We have a lot of new players. We have a lot of freshmen and some people who haven’t really played that much before,” Frieling said. “Everyone’s really working together. Everybody’s improved a ton from the beginning of the season to now.”
