QUICK Q&A KATE HALLETT ST. PAUL UNITED, SOPHOMORE HOCKEY

Hallett plays defense for the St. Paul United girls' hockey team, which is composed of players from Visitation and St. Paul Academy.

The best movie I've seen in the past year? "The Hunger Games."

Three songs I never skip on my iPod: "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer; "Best of My Love" by The Emotions; "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire.

What are your three favorite apps? Temple Run; Instagram; Twitter.

Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? I like to follow Sport Quotes on Twitter the most because the quotes make me want to push myself and to work harder as an athlete.

Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Entertaining; hard-working; loyal.

What is your favorite pregame meal? Penne rosa pasta with chicken.

At my first varsity practice, I felt ... nervous, excited and ready all at the same time. I was nervous because of all the older girls and wanting to impress the coach. I was excited because it was the beginning of a new season and a new journey. I was ready to work hard, get to know my teammates and work toward our goals.

How do you balance school and sports during the year? I balance school and sports during the school year by staying on top of each of them. I make sure I get all of my school work done while still being able to give everything I have at practice. It takes a lot of balance, focus and sacrifice.

In 10 years, I hope I've ... completed college and, if fortunate enough, I will have successfully played four years of college hockey as well. I also hope to be doing well in my employment and, most importantly, to be a good person.
