    Redshirt freshman Jordan Kielson earned her first victory in the pitching circle for the Brevard College Softball team (1-1) as the Tornados split a season-opening doubleheader against Bluefield College (1-1) on a rainy, overcast Wednesday at Ives-Lemel Family Field.  The victory marked the first for first-year Head Coach Robyn Rohr at the helm of the Brevard College softball program.  Bluefield managed to take the first contest by a final of 8-4. BC senior Micayla McCoy started for the Tornados and highlighted Brevard’s offense with a three-run homer down the left-field line. Kielson got the starting nod in game two, pitching five innings of one-run, three-hit ball while striking out three batters for her first win. The Canton, North Carolina native made waves at the plate as well, drilling a three-run homer to put the Tornados up for good in their 5-1 victory.
