Skyline Crew Senior Profiles: Natalia Portales

The Ann Arbor Skyline Crew Program and WeLoveAnnArbor presents a series of profiles on Skyline seniors 2020. Men’s profiles written by Jacinta De Almeida and Women’s profiles written by Kit Bennett

Natalia is one of our multi-sport athletes, having also competed for Skyline on the volleyball team. Natalia’s work ethic is hard to surpass, and she has always exemplified where hard work can get you. Her Senior year, she made significant speed gains, and was excited to compete in the senior quad at Midwests. Natalia has medaled multiple times at Midwests, including a gold in the Junior Quad in 2018. She was also in our team’s first ever eight’s medal at Canadian Nationals, taking silver in the U19 63kg eight.

Natalia is a very kind and thoughtful young woman who always looked out for her teammates. She will be very much missed; we wish her the best of luck at Michigan State this fall!
