SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD-- Raiders field hockey starter Bridget Ennis has started her season off with a bang, earning herself this week's Joint Motion Physical Therapy Athlete of the Week.

Despite not scoring in her team's season opener, a 3-1 loss to rival Westfield, Ennis has picked up her play in each of the three following games against Columbia (7-1 W), Montclair (4-2 L), and Holmdel (5-0 W).

Scoring a goal in each game, Ennis currently rides a three-game scoring streak heading into the team's Wednesday afternoon matchup, away against Glen Ridge.

"Bridget has always been one of our strong offensive players. She has been a forward the past two years and is good at getting to the ball quickly with strong touches and a good shot," said field hockey coach Allie Neidig. "We are looking forward to seeing her play against Glen Ridge and Arthur L. Johnson this week, it's exciting to see she is ready to go for these matchups despite suffering a split forehead from a ball in our last game."

Ennis also has a flair for the dramatic. Last October, her late goal brought a 2-1 victory over No. 6 Mount Olive in the quarterfinals of the North Jersey Section 1, Group 4 state tournament. It was the first-ever state tournament victory in Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s program history.
