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.

Sewickley Academy lost a tough away game to section rival OLSH on Monday night. After a day off school, Sewickley started flat. OLSH capitalized and put Sewickley on their heels after scoring two goals in the first half. Sewickley found an answer in the second half and scored two goals to tie the game. Olivia Ryder beautifully finished the first goal and Marynell Dethero added the second off a penalty kick soon after. Late in the second half OLSH regained the lead via penalty kick and the final score read 3-2 in favor of OLSH. Sewickley moves to 9-3-2 on the season.
