    A former Virginia Tech women's soccer player who accused her coach of
    benching her because of her political opinions will reportedly receive
    at least $100,000 as part of an agreement to dismiss a federal lawsuit.

    Kiersten Hening will receive the award as part of a settlement in the
    lawsuit she filed in 2021 against head coach Charles "Chugger" Adair on
    First Amendment grounds, her attorney Cameron Norris said last week,
    according to the Roanoke Times.

    Norris noted the terms of the settlement did not include an admission
    of wrongdoing by either his client or Adair.
