Meet the Athlete: Alma Beaton

Maria Perez-Barriga

How long have you been playing hockey?

For about nine years. Since I was 4 years old.

What do you like about playing hockey?

Skating and being competitive. I really like being competitive and playing against people. I also really like playing with my teammates and being part of a group. Having team bondings and playing together.

What position do you play in hockey?

I used to play defense, but this year I’m playing left wing. I can kind of play any position.

What is your favorite memory of playing hockey?

I just like being part of a team. It’s hard to specify but I really like the trip we took last year to Duluth. That was really fun. When we were walking around the lake and stuff, that was really fun. The games up there also were fun and we won, so it’s good.

What are you most excited about this upcoming season?

I’m excited that we have really even numbers of St. Louis Park versus Hopkins, kids we are a lot more combined as a group and everybody is also younger. There is less seniors so everybody kind of has a say and we all know each other better.

What are hoping to achieve this hockey season?

Win at least half of our games, hopefully. I’m hoping we can win some of our conference games because our conference is really tough. So it would be really awesome if we can win some of those games. Also, I’m just hoping we have fun and don’t have any issues on our team.

Is there a role model you look up to in your hockey career?

Yeah, I really like our captains this year. They’re both really great and very positive and hardworking, so I guess I look up to them on and off the ice.
