Williston’s Bridget Instrum Commits to Ohio State

20111115 Norton 031Senior Bridget Instrum (Granby, MA) signed a letter of intent to play lacrosse at The Ohio State University in the fall of 2012.

Bridget has been a student at The Williston Northampton School since the ninth grade, and she has left her mark on the school both in the classroom and outside of it.

“Bridget is a fierce competitor and an inspiring team leader,” said Varsity Girls Lacrosse coach Jennifer Fulcher. “She is one of the hardest workers I’ve seen on the field and off of it, and she is a joy to coach.”

A midfielder for the Wildcats, Bridget was named a U.S. Lacrosse All-American in recognition of her outstanding 2011 season. She led Williston to the team’s sixth straight Western New England Class B Championship this past season. The most recent championship continues an unprecedented streak of success for the team, which has lost only two games in the last four seasons. According to Coach Fulcher, Bridget had a “dominant” year. She led the lacrosse team in scoring, averaging almost six goals per game. She also led the team in ground balls.

Bridget’s has two older brothers, one of whom also attended Williston (Marc ’09).
Congratulations, Bridget!
