Senior Alina Mattson Reflects on her Second Trip to Haiti
I had an opportunity to travel to Haiti with an organization called Work my junior year at Sewickley Academy. What struck me about this organization was their integration into the communities and their promise to make families self-sufficient instead of offering outside solutions that would fix their problems short term. They do this by making sure both parents are in stable jobs and their children are placed in school. While in Haiti, we got to see first hand how Work functions and what they strive to achieve.

A beautiful day at Nichols Field saw two WPIAL and State playoff teams from last year would meet up for a section contest. Freedom started off fast and scored within the first seven minutes of the game to take a 1-0 lead. The rest of the half had both teams battling but neither team could find the back of the net. The second half started the same way as the first half as Freedom scored their second goal of the game to take a 2-0 lead. Sewickley fought back as Rees Blaylock assisted Max Reyes to cut the score 2-1. However, Sewickley couldn't find their second goal of the day and the game ended by the score of 2-1 Freedom victory. Playing a spectacular game in goal was Dimitri Gary who made 12 saves.
