Alex Woken to play on Team USA's U-18 team
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A local teenager will be representing her country this week, as one of the elite hockey players in the US.
Fargo's Alex Woken made Team USA's U-18 team this weekend in Lake Placid, New York.
The 16-year-old was one of 69 girls to be invited to the original festival roster. Then, one of 31 invited to the final camp this past weekend.
She's one of 22 on Team USA's roster. She left Fargo to attend Shattuck-St. Mary's last year. All part of her plan to realize a dream, of playing for Team USA.
Alex Woken/Team USA U-18: “It's amazing. It's an awesome experience, to be in Lake Placid, to be in the rink where the 1980 men's team won, it's just phenomenal.”
Team USA begins a 3-game series with Canada, Thursday in Calgary.
