Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
Sewickley Academy advanced to 3-0 with a convincing victory over North Catholic on Friday. Theresa Wilson registered her first shutout of the season in goal with nine saves. In the first half, Olivia Ryder scored off an assist from Kendall Lightcap and Marynell Dethero scored off an assist from Elsa Gordon. In the second half Lightcap connected with Ryder again for the final goal.

Way to show up ready to compete in the first home game of the season, Sewickley!
