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.

On another beautiful day in Western PA pitted two section foes Quigley Catholic and Sewickley Academy. Sewickley got on the scoreboard first from a corner kick as Hussein Haji scored off a header assisted by Alex Gordon. However, with a minute left in the game, Quigley scored the tying goal and sent the game into overtime. The overtime saw Sewickley dominating the play but couldn't find the winning goal. Final score 1-1.
