2016-2017 tuition Body found information near BC released sooner than usual By Calum McAndrew

By Sam Blakley

Editor in Chief BC announced a three percent tuition increase for the 2016-2017 academic year. This year, the Office of Business and Finance released the tuition breakdown sooner than usual. “Our goal is to help students sooner,” said Deborah Hall, Vice President for Business and Finance. “If we can get students thinking about finances sooner, perhaps we can fashion longer payment plans or have more time to find other financial aid options. We want to help, and hopefully announcing the tuition break down sooner will allow students to plan for next year accordingly.” The predicted total cost to attend BC next year is $37,650, according to the school website. BC Costs are broken down into tuition, room and board cost, and additional fees. For the 2016-2017 academic year, BC Tuition will be $27,550, about $750 more than ’15-’16. Room and Board will cost between $9,650 $10,500, depending on residence hall selection. The BC website states that Room and Board costs include a standard room and a meal plan. Green Hall is the only residence hall that’s price won’t increase. All others will increase by a few hundred dollars. The private room fee, which is required of Green Hall residents, decreased by $125, though Hall said this is probably temporary. The New residence hall, which is expected to be open by the fall 2016 semester, will only be available to upper classmen. Residents in the new hall will pay the same as Brevard Place residents, $5,250 per semester. There are other fees listed, such as “Activity

Fee, ” formerly known as Student Government Fee, Parking Registration Fee, or the Graduation Fee, and these total to $430. This will vary from student to student. According to the Tuition and Fees page of the website: “Athletics, insurance, and book fees are separate where applicable scholarships and grants are available.” From the Tuition and Fees page you can view a full beak down of next year’s tuition, fees, room and board costs. The Board of Trustees meets every February; during this time, the board will decide everything from next year’s tuition, as part of the budget, to restructuring the BC brand, which the Clarion covered in April of 2014. However, tuition cost information was made available almost a month earlier than previous years. “We are making an effort to make sure students and families are aware of financial changes prior to being billed for the fall term,” Caron Surrett, Director of Financial Aid said. “We will be getting bills out almost a month earlier than previous years and we encourage any student who is struggling to return to BC for financial reasons to come by and speak to one of us in the Financial Aid Office. We can review their current financial aid and discuss options available for other funding.” Students are also encouraged to file their FAFSA before the end of April. The College has partnered with the College Foundation of North Carolina to verify FAFSA information this year. So, students should look for email notification from CFNC. “I encourage students to have things in place before they leave for the summer and remember: we’re here to help,” said Surrett.

Opinion Editor A dead body was found at about 6:30 p.m. on the evening of Friday, Mar. 18 near the BC maintenance building. The body was discovered by two, as of yet unidentified BC students, who were out walking when they discovered the heavily decomposed body. After an autopsy, police have confirmed that the body is that of a 20-30 year old white male. This information comes after several days of uncertainty on the matter. The victim has not yet been identified, but there is expected to be a more informative and detailed announcement later this week. The College notified students as soon as the discovery was made in a campus wide email from Director of Safety, Security and Risk Management, Stanley Jacobsen. In the email, Jacobsen explained that an investigation was taking place by local police, and students were asked to stay away from the east side of the campus, where police activity was underway. Jacobsen has since offered further explanation of security measures being taken since the body’s discovery. “We’re patrolling that end of campus and asking students to stay away from the crime scene,” Jacobsen said. “That area is so far on the edge of campus there is no reason for anyone to be back there anyway. We do have security officers alert for individuals walking on campus who don’t appear to be members of the campus community.” Brevard College President David Joyce has also weighed in on the matter of student safety in the light of this recent news. “We take the safety and security of our students very seriously,” Joyce said. “We (will) work closely with the Brevard Police Department and are following their lead on this situation.” Further news on the situation is expected to arrive later in the week, but there is no current indication that the situation has anything to do with any BC student, faculty or staff member.

Agriculture Education program comes to BC By Anna Marie Conard Staff Writer

One thing that has been under developed at BC in the past has been the Agriculture department. There have been several classes here and there that focus on sustainable living and agriculture education, but never a developed course. All that is about to change starting in the Fall of 2016 with the addition of an Agriculture Education program within Teacher’s Licensure. Professors in the Environmental Studies department started talking to a local community member, Andy VonCanon, in the Spring of 2015 about developing the agriculture field at BC. VonCanon mentioned to BC professor and Science and Mathematics Division Chair, Jennifer Frick-Ruppert that he had many good students from the local high school interested in sustainable Agriculture, and asked if Brevard would be interested in looking into creating a local program for his students. After further discussion and consideration, the professors decided to write up a grant proposal to the Golden Leaf Foundation in the Fall of 2015. Golden Leaf Foundation is an organization looking to increase economic opportunity in tobacco dependent communities in North Carolina. The grant proposal asked for funding for an agriculture educator for one year, a green house, and supplies for the greenhouse. “We already have both Bob Cabin and Maureen Drinkard who are in Environmental Studies who have a lot of interest and expertise in sustainable agriculture. So we have all these pieces for having an agriculture emphasis within our Environmental Studies major,” Frick-Ruppert said. The idea for the program is to have it as an extension under the Environmental Studies major in which students can get their teacher licensure in agriculture education with a degree in Environmental Science. “There Aren't enough teachers in Agriculture Education, so they command good salaries and can pretty much go wherever they want to go,” Frick-Ruppert said. “This would be a great opportunity for students to go into an area where there is a need and an interest in a lot of different places.” The school started interviewing potential professors for the job last semester, but could not find anyone to fit the job. “They have to have agriculture education and be willing to work

with us in sustainability and know something about small scale markets. It's hard to find the perfect person who would fit what we're doing here.” Frick-Ruppert said. The school is back into looking for potential professors. They have had several interviews, and hope to have the instructor selected by the end of the school year. Along with the funding for a faculty member, the Environmental Studies department is hoping to get a greenhouse to support a horticulture emphasis. The greenhouse would open up several opportunities in working with local community members as well as providing a space to teach new growing techniques. One potential use is working with local flower and herbal shops. The students would learn how to grow plants meeting the shops need, and the local shops would get locally student grown plants. Part of this agreement could also be used in the Health Science department to learn about and grow herbs for medicinal uses. These same herbs could then potentially be used as local food in the Caf. There are also hopes that the addition of the greenhouse will open up the opportunity for more grants to further student's education in sustainable growing practices, such as hydroponics. This is a form of agriculture in which fish (usually Tilapia) are raised in water which will hold their waste products. The water can then be used as fertilizer for plants that are growing from the water, and the plants would then clean the water for the fish. Faculty members are still unsure as to where to put the greenhouse, but they are hoping to have the funding for it by the summer, and have it built by fall 2016. The details of the Agriculture Education program, or programs that may rise from it, are not completely worked out. For example, class offerings will depend on who the new professor is and what they can offer. But, getting the grant is a big step in the right direction. From here, more than just environmental sciences can grow into offering an education major. “This fits our school really well, and fits what we're already doing. This is who we are,” Frick-Ruppert said. “We're already interested in the sustainability component. We're already interested in education, so let's marry those things together to have an area that will be good for our students and give everyone lots of opportunities in the future.”

Pilot program for selfregistration continues for a second semester By Alex Laifer

Staff Writer Most students must have their academic advisors register them for classes. However, for the last two semester, a pilot group allows a small number of students to register themselves for the next semester’s classes. These students can view and register for Fall 2016 classes on This site has been online since the Spring of 2015, replacing Web Twister. 150-200 students are part of the pilot program. Students with selected base off of their academic advisor. By next semester, the administration plans on allowing all students to self-register for classes. Students in the pilot group received an email from Amy Hertz, the Registrar at Brevard College with instructions on how to self register. They completed a registration worksheet in which they filled out their schedule for the Fall 2016 semester. They were required to meet with their academic advisor on “Plan Your Future Day” or another day prior to registration to review this schedule. After this meeting, the academic advisor gave registration clearance to the students. On, students can watch short videos on how to self-register In her role as Registrar, Amy Hertz does a lot of technical work behind the scenes including maintaining registration timetables, programing prerequisites into databases, and organizing the academic calendar. Jay Trussell is the Director of Information Technology. Trussell stated that Brevard College has had the technological capability to allow students to self-register for classes for a long time but is now changing its approach. Hertz and Trussell stated that most other colleges now allow students to register themselves for classes. The administration has never allowed students to self-register for classes. This was in part because they want students to maintain See ‘Registration’ page 8

Final History Club speaker scheduled for March 29 Retired US Navy Rear Admiral presents on “Anti-submarine Warfare During the Cold War” By Alex Laifer Staff Writer

Movie Review:

‘10 Cloverfield Lane’ 2016’s best film so far By Michael Heiskell

Arts & Life Editor “10 Cloverfield Lane” is an incredibly well written thriller that improves on the original in almost every way. Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has just ended her relationship with her fiancée when she gets into a terrible car crash. She wakes up chained in the cellar of a man named Howard (John Goodman) that claims that there was an attack on New York and that the air is no longer breathable. To protect her from the world, he is not going to let her out. For those looking for a “Cloverfield” sequel, let me go ahead and steer you in another direction. This really only is a sequel in name and don’t expect it to feel or look anything like the found footage cult classic. However, this isn’t a bad thing. This film is a sharply written, wellacted, claustrophobic thriller that focuses on characters and storytelling more than spectacle. It is everything that “Cloverfield” is not. John Goodman is such an underrated actor. He delivers one of his best performances of his career as the imposing and complex ‘Howard’. I know that films like this rarely get attention

from the Academy, but John Goodman definitely deserves accolades and attention for the ferocity he brought to the role. The rest of the small cast are excellent as well. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. bring a humanity and frailty to their characters that drive this film and help succeed in many places that “Cloverfield” did not. The final act of the film felt out of place in comparison to the scale of the excellent first two acts. Things get bigger and more action packed and steer away from all the character building that had been done from the start. Part of me thinks that this ending was rewritten by producers who wanted the film to spawn more sequels and play larger into the “Cloverfield” mythos and ride that money train. Truth of the matter, this film could have easily done without “Cloverfield” at all. It just, sadly, wouldn’t have made enough money. Audiences kill for sequels and familiarity. Overall, I would give this film a 4 out of 5 stars. The first two acts are nearly perfect in every way but unfortunately it succumbs to a typical and Hollywood final act that nearly undoes everything the beginning did right.

Admiral Gretchen Herbert will be speaking before the History Club on March 29 at 7 p.m. in MG 125. The presentation is entitled “Antisubmarine Warfare During the Cold War”. Herbert was born in Rochester, New York and graduated from University of Rochester in May of 1984. She went on to receive Master's Degrees in Systems Technology in 1991 and Military Studies in 1998. She earned these degrees from Naval Postgraduate School and Military Studies from the Marine Corps Command and Staff College. Herbert’s military service began during the Cold War, which ended in 1991. She spent 29 years in active duty for the Navy and has an extensive resume. She had several operational assignments. She was a combat systems officer on USS George Washington (CVN-73) which was in service during the Gulf War. Also, she was assistant chief of staff for Communication and Information Systems. Herbert had several shore assignments. She was a satellite communications officer at Headquarters, executive officer for the U.S. Naval Forces Europe, instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College, commanding officer for the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Washington. Furthermore, She was a branch head for Naval Networks for OPNAV N6 and a commander of Carrier Strike Group 7 embarked in USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76). Herbert’s final assignment prior to retirement was as Commander at Navy Cyber Forces in Norfolk, Virginia. Herbert retired from the Navy in January of 2014 with the rank of Rear Admiral. This is the tenth and final presentation of the History Club Speakers Series.

Netflix Spotlight:

‘Love’ Touching, but not in a creepy way By Michael Heiskell

Arts & Life Editor “Love” is a wonderfully honest take on modern dating that is both hilarious and completely human. “Love” is about two people who are finding ruts in life and love. Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) is an addict that keeps dating men who fuel her addictions. Gus (Paul Rust) is a teacher that never takes any risks in his life. Despite being so different, Gus and Mickey end up meeting anyway. Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs are two absolute gems in this show. Jacobs had been making steady work in “Community” but Paul Rust was still mostly unknown before this show. Likely, the success of “Love” is bound to propel both of their careers forward. They had wonderful chemistry and both were hilarious. The show was co-created by Rust and his personal hand in the show is one of the things that makes his character work so well. You could tell he was invested in the episodes. The 10-episode arc works perfectly for the formatting of the show. It gives enough time to watch the evolution of a relationship with enough time to believably understand the stakes. The cast of characters are all believable and interesting and the episodes are clever and well directed. There really isn’t much to complain about with this show. This show teeters on the line of hilarious and dramatic in such a way that only producer Judd Apatow is capable of. With hits like, “Freaks and Geeks” and “Knocked Up”, Apatow constantly delivers. “Love” is no different though it feels like a more grounded, serious piece of work. While it strays away from his regular cast of actors, it still feels like a regular piece of his work. Overall, I would give this show a 4 ½ out of 5. It is endearing and memorable enough to go down as one of the Netflix original classics.

Environmental sustainability focus of third annual Grassical By Sam Blakley Editor in Chief

Brevard College will celebrate the 46th anniversary of Earth Day Saturday, April 9, with activities to engage students and the community in environmental stewardship. Earthfest & Grassical promises a free day of family fun from 1 to 8 p.m. at the College’s Student Plaza, located in front of Myer’s Dining Hall. “Celebrating Earth Day is important because we need to take care of the place where we live,” said Brevard student Jamie Ellisor, who is studying elementary education and art. “By bringing awareness and teaching one another this important skill, we are bettering the future of the world.” Local organizations will be on hand to share information on recycling and composting, and area artisans will show and sell their handmade arts and crafts. Spokespeople from the Sierra Club and BC Greens, the campus’ environmental awareness club, will be set up to discuss on and off campus local environmental initiatives. On Feb. 20, 2015 Brevard College announced it would be the first academic institution in the Southeast to commit to divesting from fossil fuels by 2018. Since, the College has continued their support for environmental friendly initiatives by installing solar panels on Myer’s Dining Hall and two electric charging stations for electric vehicles. This year BC Greens has joined a coalition with Divest NC, attended a social issue summit in DC focused race, climate, and immigration, and created a student coalition with the Sierra Club. In addition the club has organized clean ups for on-campus green spaces, like the wetlands and regular litter pick-ups and invasive species removal. Most recently, BC Greens purchased three bat boxes to be placed strategically across campus.

They’ve gained sponsorships from members in the community for more boxes downtown. BC Green’s sister organization, BC E.A.T.S which is focused on getting local food and sustainable practices in Myer’s Dining Hall, will also be present at Grassical to pass out pamphlets and answer questions. The group hopes to expand on what it means to be a sustainable campus by helping to allocate funds and efforts to bringing locally produced, organically grown, fairly traded or humanely raised food to campus. At the Kids’ Village, children can get their face painted, create crafts from recycled materials, learn how to tie-dye and meet a variety of animals. The event includes a raffle with prizes from local restaurants and businesses – proceeds of the raffle go to the Transylvania County Humane Society. Local bands Wilhelm Brothers, Pretty Little Goat, and the Get Right Band will provide music throughout the day. "The center of Grassical and Earthfest is for people to come together in the name of environmentalism in a way that not only promoted stewardship, but shows that getting together in the name of environmentalism can be really fun.,” said SGA President Stephen Olsen. Olsen was a head organizer of the inaugural Grassical and was an integral part of merging the two festivals last year. Earthfest & Grassical is organized by the Brevard College Earthfest & Grassical Planning Committee and is sponsored by Brevard College Campus Life Division, along with the Elijah Mountain Gem Mine, Mass General Store, Tempo Music, Sherman's Sports, Local Color, Ingles, Coffee Carts, Spice it to a Tea, Falls Landing, and many more. “We will have great bands, great food, lots of local vendors; and it costs nothing to attend," said Olsen. "It's going be a great time."

A life in the outdoors

Senior Spotlight

By Jessica Wiegandt Staff Writer

With a major and double minor, senior Julie Kroll is set to graduate this April. Kroll is a WLEE major with Environmental Studies and Natural History minors. She grew up in a small town in Va. and came to Brevard because of the WLEE program. “Right now I don’t have any specific plans for how I want to implement my major and minors.” Kroll said, “But I will be working at a camp this summer as a wilderness adventure guide.” Kroll worked at Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp of Harrisonburg, Va. last summer and is returning for 2016. She will be interning and her position involves planning and leading all of the off-property trips, such as canoeing and backpacking. “I’ll also be taking a trip up to West Virginia where we’ll do a mix of activities and I’m looking forward to that,” Kroll said. After summer, Kroll said she has looked at going to Belize to work as an adventure guide at a resort from Oct. to May. The job allows for guided hiking, tubing, zip lining, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding and snorkeling. She hopes to do a combination of several activities or possibly manage a part of the adventure section. “I learned about it through a family friend who goes down to help with sustainable forestry,” Kroll said, “It was mentioned one time that the resort was looking for adventure guides and since then I’ve been thinking about it.” Kroll said her time at Brevard College has helped her to gain knowledge about the outdoor industry and she will be able to apply her skills learned here in her future line of work. “I’ve always wanted to work in the outdoors in some way,” Kroll said, “I grew up riding horses for nine years and when I stopped that looked for other options. Brevard opened up doors for me to get involved in backpacking, kayaking, climbing and all other kinds of outdoor recreation.” Her background with a family who enjoyed the outdoors allowed the transition from high school to college to be an easy one. Kroll said she fit in to the area of Western North Carolina well and found the WLEE program to be supportive and filled with enthusiasm. “Voice of the Rivers intrigued me when I was looking for schools and then I found the WLEE program and here I am, three years later and graduating.” Kroll said, “And VOR was one of

the best things I did while I was here. The connections that we formed along the river among the group and people in the community around the river were really memorable and special.” Kroll, as a WLEE major, completed her Immersion semester in fall of 2014 with Jenny Kafsky as her group’s professor. Her favorite meal while on the 21-day trip was a concoction of macaroni and cheese with chicken and vegetables. Kroll said her time with the WLEE department has been special to her and she thanks the professors for all of their time and dedication. “I have a connection with each professor that is different and special for each one,” Kroll said, “They’re all really supportive and valuable and I appreciate them all.” Brevard, according to Kroll, is her second home because it’s removed from the bustling city life and is surrounded by the woods. However, if you want to visit the city Kroll said Asheville is just the right distance away for her. “It’s conveniently located for a lot of outdoor adventure and that’s something special for me,” Kroll said. While Kroll has no permanent occupational plans for the future post-graduation, she is

excited to see what she can create for herself with the education she earned at BC. “When people ask me what I want to do with my life, or degree or where I want to work I say I don’t know,” Kroll said, “But I do know I want to work outside and be happy and have fun with my life and that’s precisely what I’m going to do. There’s so many opportunities out there and I can’t say what I’ll be doing for the next few years but I do know it will be great.”

Philosophy Club is building an audience Page 6

By Kaelyn Martin

Staff Writer With the recent removal of seven clubs from SGA and only five weeks of classes left in the school year, it might seem risky to start up a new club. However, the recently formed Philosophy club has an optimistic outlook and big plans. “We’re planning on putting together a short presentation on the Eastern Philosophies of Star Wars and then doing a movie marathon,” William Burkey, president of Philosophy club, said. The club hosted its first interest meeting after spring break and has had two meetings since then. During the first meeting they posed a

question for discussion, namely: do animals have souls? “We just talk about ideas such as philosophy, politics and anything that is interesting,” Burkey said. “Philosophy isn’t even the right word to describe it. We just mean philosophy as overall knowledge.” Burkey also mentioned plans to go and visit a variety of places of worship such as a mosque in Asheville. He also hopes to bring different speakers to the college. “We’re very interested in spiritual and other faith based practices,” Burkey said. With any club, participation is something that

The Clarion


March 23, 2016

must be closely examined. Because the club just formed a little over three weeks ago, the club has not had many participants but Burkey plans for that to change. “I definitely think turnout is going to increase once we figure out better ways to tell students what we do,” Burkey said. “When people find out what we do and how open-minded and thoughtful we are, I think more people join us.” For those who are interested in attending a meeting, the club plans to meet once a week on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. in MG 113. “We’re trying to build something,” Burkey said. “We’ve got so many big plans.”

BC alum returns for Wonderful Wednesday presentation

By Elizabeth Harrison


Director of Communications and Media Relations

Brevard College graduate Toni Kiser pays a visit to her alma mater on Wednesday, March 23, to discuss how she turned an interest in caring for “old things” into a career. Kiser, assistant director for collections management at The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, will speak to faculty, staff, students and community members in the J.A. Jones Library at 9:30 a.m. Kiser grew up in West Virginia and spent most of her summers with her grandmother, an avid yard sale and flea market shopper. She says her grandmother instilled in her a love of antiques and was a driving force in pushing her to attend college. At BC, Kiser earned a bachelor of arts in history. While at Brevard, she realized that what she really wanted to do was not just study history, but take care of the tangible objects that help us to study history. She says she wanted to care for those “old things” so that they could be a teaching tool for generations. After college, Kiser earned a master of arts in museum studies from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She accepted the position of registrar at The National WWII museum in March 2007 and is currently serv-

Hrobak fared well in matchup with league’s top pitcher, striking out six in game two of doubleheader against Catawba.

Regionally-ranked Erskine rallies to defeat Brevard By Randall Stewart

Athletic Media Relations Director

2015 first team all-Southeast Region pitcher Carley Tysinger twirled a no-hitter in Game One of Brevard’s softball doubleheader at Catawba Saturday, propelling the Catawba Indians to a sweep by scores of 3-0 and 3-1. Tysinger struck out 15 Tornados (10-18, 0-2 SAC) in her complete-game victory. The senior from Lexington, North Carolina has twice been named AstroTurf South Atlantic Conference Pitcher of the Week and has a NFCA Pitcher of the Week award to her name this season. She hit four batters in the game, with two of them advancing into scoring position, but was able to keep the Tornados off the board in the win. Jamie Hrobak fared well in a matchup of the league’s top pitching talent. She gave up three runs, one of which was unearned, on six hits in a complete-game six innings. She struck out five batters without allowing a walk. The Indians (18-9, 2-0 SAC) struck for a run on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first inning. Hrobak allowed a first-pitch single to lead off the third inning, then notched an 11-pitch strikeout. She worked the count full to Delane Smith before the Indians’ second baseman lifted her second home run of the season over the left field fence to extend the lead to 3-0. Left fielder Caroline Turner had the most success off Hrobak, going 3-for-3 at the plate

with three runs scored to account for half of the Indians’ hits in the contest. Catawba wasted no time in building an advantage in the second game of the day, hanging three runs on Hrobak in the first inning on a Smith double and a two-run shot by first baseman Morgan Brann. The Indians managed just one additional hit off Hrobak until the fifth inning. The Brevard hurler left a runner at third in the frame before stranding the bases loaded in the sixth as the Indians sought insurance. Tysinger and Hrobak reprised their roles in the circle in Game Two, both throwing their second complete games of the day. Tysinger brought her strikeout total on the day to 26, scattering six hits and allowing a single run. Hrobak gave up three runs on eight hits, striking out six with one walk. Brevard got a run back in the second inning after opportunistic baserunning by Ashleigh Ivey. The junior right fielder reached safely on a bunt back to the circle, reached second on a Hanna Huckabee groundout, and was moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Lauren Parker. She then came in to score on a wild pitch by Tysinger. The Tornados, however, could not muster another run and stranded six runners on the basepaths. Ivey and Mary Cloninger each totaled a pair of hits in the contest for Brevard. Brann went 3-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored to pace the Catawba offense.

Brevard College’s women’s lacrosse team took on nationally-ranked Queens University of Charlotte on Friday evening, losing to the No. 14 Royals 20-4. With the result, the Tornados drop to 4-3 overall and 1-2 in South Atlantic Conference play. Brevard held the 24th-highest scoring team in Division II to no goals in the opening nine minutes of play, but Queens (5-1, 2-0 SAC) was able to get one past Shelby Arsenault with 20:02 remaining in play. Ashlea Mann was able to knot up the score at 1-1 off the feed from Livia Harrienger six minutes later, giving her 12 assists on the season which ties the program record. Queens countered with seven-straight goals before Mann was able to find the back of the net again to end the bleeding. Brevard was able to get one more score before halftime from Caitlyn Nemeth, sandwiched by a pair of Royals’ goals, to make it 10-3 at the break. Queens scored early in the second half, scoring in the first thirty seconds and adding two more goals in before Allie McMillan scored her first goal for the royal blue and white to make 13-4. Queens ended the contest with seven more goals. Mann paced the offense with two goals and posted two draw controls, second on the team behind McMilan’s three. Sade Allen boasted five ground balls in the contest while Penina Fungalei recorded three caused turnovers.

Brevard splits doubleheader with Lenoir-Rhyne By Eli Sirota

Athletic Media Relation Assistant

BC’s baseball team concluded its South Atlantic Conference series with Lenoir-Rhyne on Saturday, splitting the doubleheader with a 11-8 win in game one and 4-8 loss in game two. With the split, Brevard is 11-19 overall and 2-10 in SAC play. Lenoir-Rhyne (21-8, 5-4 SAC) began the day with a three-run opening frame, holding the lead briefly as a huge second inning put the royal blue and white ahead.
