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 continues with senior Brittney Bench.
 
Senior forward Brittney Bench has played in all five Liberty contests this season, with two starts. The Orefield, Pa., native was named to the all-tournament team for her play during the Lady Flames' run to the 2005 Big South Championship. The religion major with a minor in psychology is a three-time member of the Big South Presidential Honor Roll.
 
My earliest soccer memory is … playing at the local YMCA with my cousin, and my coach really scaring me.
 
 
Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is … frisbee golf with [teammate] Mallory [Neff]!!
 
 
When I have an hour of free time, I like to … get some food with my roommates Ashley and Lauren, mostly Tokyo [Japanese Express] and Chick-fil-A!
 
 
If I won a million dollars, I would … save it, so I can build a house with my husband one day.
 
 
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have this song … I have a lot of Hilary Duff, but I am pretty open about liking her!! "Come Clean" is the best song!
 
 
It is not good for you, but I still eat … Chick-Fil-A waffle fries. They are the best!
 
 
A place I would like to visit one day is … Greece or Rome. I love ancient things. It would be amazing.
 
 
If you could eat dinner with three other people (living or dead), who would they be and why? Lindsay Lohan - So, I could talk some sense into her and we could be friends.
Victoria and David Beckham - I know I would hit it off with them, and then we can double date!
 
 
Who is your favorite Bible character and why? Esther was an amazing woman. She was so brave when adversity came her way and her life was on the line. 
 
 
When surfing the Internet, what website do you visit the most frequently?  I love to look at wedding gowns, pottery barn and restoration hardware websites.  I am always thinking about the future.
 
 
What is something about you that other people don't know?  I am a very impulsive shopper. It is almost a disease.  But, I think people know that about me.
 
 
 
What is the best part about being on the Liberty Women's Soccer team?  The best part about the team is being around the best girls in the entire world.  Everyone on the team is really wonderful and I have met my best friends for life on the team.
 
 
Who is your favorite Superhero and why?  I have always loved Batman, but I would not want to be him.  I would be Catwoman because she is very agile, and you can never tell if she is nice or mean.  It keeps you guessing!
 
 
What cartoon character are you most like and why?  I want to say Ariel, the Little Mermaid, but I am really not like her. I just would want to be her.  She's the best Disney princess ever! 
 
 
After graduation, I would like to … I am hoping to go to Lehigh University to get a master's degree and become a school guidance counselor.
