With the 2015 women's soccer season officially at a close, Liberty Flames Sports Network's Alan York caught up with Liberty assistant coach Adam Godwin.

During the interview segment, York and Godwin talked about the team capturing the 2015 Big South Championship, the senior class and the program's future.

Liberty punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament after capturing its record-tying fifth Big South championship with a 1-0 win over Campbell on Nov. 8. The Lady Flames squared off with No. 3 seed North Carolina in the first round on Nov. 13, falling to the Tar Heels, 3-0.

2015 Season Notes/Highlights
Lady Flames senior Brittany Aanderud cemented her name in the program's record book. The midfielder set a new career assist mark with 30 and finished second on the school's all-time list behind Liberty Athletics Hall of Famer Nancy Davis (1998-2001) with 64 points.

Redshirt junior goalkeeper Holly Van Noord concluded the season with 33 career shutouts, tying former Radford keeper Che' Brown (2010-13) for the Big South career record.

Senior defender Jamie Bouffard completed her collegiate career with 86 games played, the most by a Lady Flame in program history.

Following Liberty's fifth conference championship, senior defender Alex Mack was selected as the Big South Tournament MVP and was joined by three other Lady Flames on the all-tournament team – sophomore forward Jennifer Knoebel, Brittany Aanderud and Holly Van Noord.

Liberty captured its second straight regular-season title in 2015 and had five players earn Big South All-Conference honors. Sophomore forward Jennifer Knoebel headlined the group of Lady Flames, picking up first team and all-academic team honors. Redshirt junior goalkeeper Holly Van Noord and senior midfielder Rebekah Page were selected to the conference's second team. Freshmen forwards Devon Jones and Aly Hill each earned all-freshman team honors to round out Liberty's honorees.
