We arrived in Newton, MA via bus late Tuesday night after leaving from Hanover, NH with the win over Dartmouth. Wednesday morning was spent practicing at Harvard. Once the girls showered we met with Dr. Roger Porter, who is on the faculty at Harvard and is a BYU alumni. He gave us a wonderful tour of the campus where we learned a lot about the school's history. He took us to Dunster House where he is the House Master. We enjoyed a delicious lunch there in the eating area that is reminiscent of the Dining Hall in the Harry Potter books and movies.
