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.

he last game of the year came down to second place in the section. The teams that were battling out for the right for second place were SA and OLSH. The game started out well for SA as we scored three minutes into the game. The goal was scored by Max Reyes. The lead lasted until about 15 minutes left in the second half as OLSH scored to tie up the game. However, Alex Gordon made an amazing play to score the second goal for SA. Then with about 4 minutes left in the game, Rees Blaylock scored SA's third goal of the game to take a commanding lead. The game ended SA 3-1 over OLSH. Great job gentleman.
