Sports Legend

Taylor Wolf, Class of 2013

Born and raised in Biloxi, Mississippi — the hotbed of lacrosse — for many of her early years, Taylor Wolf found herself feeling very comfortable in any sports arena. As a youth softball, basketball, lacrosse and soccer player, Taylor took her love of the game seriously as she grew. After relocating to the Hamburg area as an eight-year-old, Taylor found sports as a natural way to adapt to the change in environment. Throughout high school, Taylor participated in both Varsity Basketball and Lacrosse. As a senior, she was appointed to 2013 US Lacrosse First Team All-American, First Team ALL WNY, and First Team All Division for her standout lacrosse performance. Throughout the season, she netted 76 goals (129 career), 47 assists (79 career), 18 caused turnovers (35 career) 18 ground balls (49 career), 19 draw wins (53 careers) and 3 interceptions (6 career). Her season of athletic accolades was capped with a Section IV Championship where Taylor helped drive the team to victory with 4 goals.

Taylor then committed to Niagara University’s Division 1 program to continue her career as an Attacker with a secondary focus on Nursing. She was named to the 2014 MAAC All-Rookie Team after starting all 16 games as a freshman. She was also honored with MAAC Rookie of the Week and scored a hat-trick against Robert Morris. Her success in athletics continued into her sophomore year where she made the 2015 MAAC All-Academic Team and played in all 18 games. She was second on the team in goals and had a single game high of 6 goals against Manhattan. As a junior, Taylor continued to excel on the lacrosse field and would later walk on to the D1 Women’s Basketball Team for one season.

After graduation, Taylor employed her critical thinking skills in a new way and became an Emergency Room Nurse. Currently, she resides in Colden, NY with her son, Bennett (3yo), and daughter, Charlie (1yo) and wife, Sarah, whom she met in her time at Niagara University. These days, she enjoys watching her son collect sticks at soccer practice and her daughter learn to walk, lacrosse stick in hand. Watch out, Hamburg athletics! More Wolfs to come!
