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.
On Monday evening Sewickley Academy traveled just down the street to take on neighborhood rival Quaker Valley. In a fast paced and well played game, Sewickley struck first with a beautiful shot from Olivia Ryder. As the game progressed, Quaker Valley began to tally up goals as Sewickley remained at 1 on the scoreboard. Despite losing 6-1 in the end, Sewickley learned a lot from playing a competitive and skilled QV team. Sewickley moves to 7-2-2 on the season and still has first place in the section in their sights.
