Free Kicks with Rachel Hetrick
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 senior Rachel Hetrick.
Senior forward Rachel Hetrick, a native of Grantville, Pa., has seen action in 55 games as a Lady Flame. In 2005, she enjoyed her best season to date, scoring four goals and two assists. She netted two goals during Liberty's 2005 Big South Championship run and was named a member of the all-tournament team.

If I won a million dollars, I would … pay off my college debt, invest, buy my dad a Harley motorcycle and build my mom a nice room, so she could listen to her radio.
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have this song … MC Hammer's - Can't Touch This.
It is not good for you, but I still eat … double cheese burgers.
A place I would like to visit one day is … Spain.
If you could eat dinner with three other people (living or dead), who would they be and why? Cristiano Ronaldo (because he is an awesome soccer player), Celine Dion (because her music is amazing), and my Grandpa Hetrick (because I would love to meet him).
