McKenzie dropped its season opener on Tuesday.

Highland Home topped McKenzie 10-7.

“I thought for a first game we played well enough to win but Highland Home did a great job of hitting the ball in the gaps,” McKenzie head coach Ezell Powell said.

Sanford led the Lady Tigers’ offensive charge with a 3-for-4 effort at the plate. Lassister and Ashley Ballard were both 2-for-4.

McKenzie will be back in action Tuesday when it hits the road to face in-county rival Greenville High School. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
