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 Ashley Nyholt.
 
Nyholt, a freshman goalkeeper, is in her first year at Liberty. The Brampton, Ontario, native has started all four of the Lady Flames' matches this season. Her twin sister, Laura, who we met in the last installment, also plays for Liberty.
 
My earliest soccer memory is … playing soccer in my hallway with my dad and sister.
 
Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is … snowboarding.
 
When I have an hour of free time, I like to … play my guitar.
 
If I won a million dollars, I would … have no idea what to do with it!
 
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have this song … A Whole New World by Aladdin and Jasmine.
 
It is not good for you, but I still eat … Nutella straight from the jar!
 
A place I would like to visit one day is … Dominican Republic.
 
If you could eat dinner with three other people (living or alive), who would they be and why?
Jesus - Who wouldn't want to eat dinner with him? A guy who rose from the dead would be pretty cool to talk to in person.
My Grandpa - I never got to meet him, so having dinner with him would be awesome.
Ruth Graham - It would be cool to find out what it was like being the wife of Billy Graham. I'm not sure how many people got to hear her story (compared the number of times her hubby spoke).
 
Who is your favorite Bible character and why?
David - He knew God was in control of his life, even when his enemies were trying to take it away.
 
When surfing the Internet, what website do you visit the most frequently? The Weather Network
 
What is something about you that other people don't know? I have a strange fascination for thunderstorms. 
 
What is the best part about being on the Liberty Women's Soccer team?
The fact that I'm a part of Liberty Women's Soccer.
 
Who is your favorite Superhero and why?
Superman - He can fly anywhere in the world without having to pay for airfare!
 
What cartoon character are you most like and why?
Gumby – He's a pretty easy-going person who likes animals and enjoys playing guitar.
 
After graduation, I would like to … get into coaching, and go on a big trip.
