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.

It was fun to be back home after four straight section contests on the road. Our boys showed that by scoring 61 points in the first three quarters. The passing tonight was crisp as the unselfishness was evident throughout the night. Jett led us in scoring with 25 points on another excellent shooting performance, and Isiah had 16 points on another efficient performance. We had only 6 turnovers with our top eight players. Isaiah led us in rebounding with 10, and Will and Dave had 7 each. Dave led us in assists with 6 and Isiah had 5; many times we had guys making the pass that led to the assist that was crucial.
