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.

In a matchup between last year's AAA and AA WPIAL Champions, the Panthers played outstanding defense to defeat their old section rival 70 - 42. For the second straight game all five starters registered double figures as Isaiah Smith led us with 19 points, Jett Roessing with 18 points, along with Dave Groetsch, Isiah Warfield and Nate Ridgeway. Four players led the team with 7 rebounds in Nate, Isiah, Dave and Isaiah. All five starters had between two and four steals. Isaiah and Isiah led the team in assists. Isiah and Nate led the team in blocked shots. Will, Jared and Donald continue to help us off the bench.
Another outstanding team effort from our hard working players!
