Following a four-year varsity career at Friends School in Maryland, including undefeated teams in 1968 & 1969, Friedman began her collegiate career at Ithaca College, playing two years before transferring to Towson University for the 1974 and 1975 seasons. She was a two-sport athlete at Towson, also playing on the field hockey squad.

Friedman was a member of the U.S. Women’s National Team program for four years (1972-1975), and played on the 1975 U.S. Touring Team that finished undefeated in Great Britain. She finished as the U.S. Team’s leading scorer during that tour. As a club player, she had a four-year run as a member of the South squad at the Women’s National Tournament.

Friedman has previously been inducted into three Halls of Fame, including the inaugural class for Friends School, as well as the Towson University Hall of Fame and the US Lacrosse Greater Baltimore Chapter’s Hall of Fame in 1997. The granddaughter of 1965 Hall of Fame inductee Phillip Lamb, Friedman was inducted as a truly great player.
