Free Kicks With Laura Nyholt
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday throughout the women's soccer season, fans will have an opportunity to get to know the Lady Flames a bit better through a question-and-answer session. Today, the series contines with freshman Laura Nyholt.
Freshman midfielder Laura Nyholt hails from Brampton, Ontario. This season, she has played in all three of the Lady Flames' matches. Her twin sister, Ashley, also a freshman, also plays for Liberty.
My earliest soccer memory is … when I was three years old, I would play in the basement with my sister Ashley and my dad. When one of us would cry from a ball hitting our face, my dad would stare us down and say, "Are you bleeding? No? Then get up."
Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is … volleyball or snowboarding.
When I have an hour of free time, I like to … go shopping.
If I won a million dollars, I would … give 10 percent to my home church, buy a whole new wardrobe, and then take a trip around the world with all of my friends.
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have this song … I'm one of the few who have yet to get an iPod.

A place I would like to visit one day is … Italy.
