Porter Says: “Martha is a great fit for Yale. Coming out of CRI and training under Ethan Curren I know she will be ready to go when she gets here. She is a racer that’s for sure.“
Why Yale? “I chose Yale primarily on the strength of the people I met there. The students were relaxed yet purposeful and I found the same in the professors. When I walked on campus, I had that magical 'feeling' that everyone talks about, yet can never describe.”
Quote: My coach always tells us...."Winning is not normal. I would like to think that we, as a team, are not normal."
