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.

Tonight was a good game to work on things especially in the halfcourt offense. It was fun to watch all of the good passing led by Isiah's 5 assists and Dave's 4 assists. The brothers Belt played well together as they scored 7 and 5 points. Jared's hustle is impressive especially on a night when we were winning handily, and he is still diving on the floor for loose balls. Hussein had some good assists, Cole had a number of deflections and Cooper scored a career high of 5 points to go along with some rebounding.
