Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
The Sewickley Academy girls varsity tennis team completed their undefeated season by capturing the state title on Saturday in Hershey.
The victory was a true team effort where each player contributed her part. Congratulations to the team - senior captain Alina Mattson, sophomores Simran Bedi, Emma DiSantis, Victoria Keller, Aleena Purewal, Evelyn Safar, and Christina Walton, and freshmen Sana Singh and Sofia Smith. With only one senior on the team, the future for girls tennis at Sewickley Academy looks bright.
