The fired LU head women’s softball coach and an assistant coach have filed appeals and grievances over what they call their termination due to a complaint filed by a player who says she was refused her request to order a sandwich without meat for Lent. Attorney Cade Bernsen says former head coach Holly Bruder and assistant coach Allison Honkofsky were told by the Athletic Director to resign or they’d be fired. They say the dispute involves a player, Paige Holmes, who says LU coaching staff members refused her request to order a meal without meat during Lent and follow her religious beliefs, when she was mistakenly served a sandwich with meat on a Friday road trip. Holmes’ father says the staff refused her request and didn’t allow her to follow her religious beliefs. Attorney Bernsen denies the claim. Bernsen released to the media what he says is a copy of the menu from that Friday road trip. He says it shows that Holmes ordered a bacon and turkey sandwich. Holmes’ father says the menu Bernsen released is a Saturday menu. He says players would fill out menus one day ahead. – fox4beaumont – Read More
