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.

We concluded our sectional season with a bang, beating both teams in our trip-match earning the shared sectional win! We had an 11/1 record which is something to be proud of! The team was most concerned that we will be awarded the flag to hang in the gym, which I assured them we would! Way to go team - you are the best! We have one more match, non sectional, next week as we prepare for our upcoming tournaments. Wish Tatum and Zoe luck in the Individuals at Diamond Run on Wednesday! Go Panthers
