Martin will be providing athletic training services for the Cyclones on a daily basis, for all sports and all practices, games and meets. She will be working closely with Bishop Ward administration to help strengthen current athletic policies as well as create new policies to assist in the healthcare and safety of the student athletes at Bishop Ward to no extra charge to student athletes or their families.
