15 MHJ // New Ulm had a remarkable season. What was your favorite part about playing with these girls? Beltz // I've known them for so long—I've known them all my life. I can go out there and play with them and we all have so much fun together. I'm just super comfortable with them. MHJ // Do you remember the first time you stepped on the ice as a kid? Beltz // I think I was 4. My parents put me out there and I've liked it ever since. I don't ever remember not liking it. My brother played hockey, too, and we'd always have little compe- titions. I've always had a passion for it and I've never stopped liking hockey. MHJ // How do you find a balance between hockey and other activities? Beltz // I play three sports: volleyball, softball and hockey. It's definitely tough. It's hard, and you have to sacrifice one or the other. It's taught me a lot about time management and making decisions. MHJ // You participated in the USA Hockey Girls' 15 National Player Development Camp a few years ago. What was that experience like for you? Beltz // That was so surreal. I've never been a part of something that big and I couldn't believe it. There were Olympians there talking to us, along with college coaches. It was a little bit scary and intimidating, but I met so many new girls and it was so much fun.
