Hartselle took on West Morgan in one of the opening games. The Rebels took the lead early in the first inning 3-0 thanks to scores from Goodpastor, G. Terry and J. Terry. Hartselle would work to climb back in the game in the next few innings. Bailey Powell would score on a single by Anna Stinson to cut the score to 3-1. The Tigers would tie the game 3-3 in the third when both Taylor Spangler and Kalli Cartee scored on fielder’s choices. West Morgan would retake the lead in the fourth at 4-3. Hartselle would tie the game back up when Cartee singled to drive in Stinson. The Tigers would then take the lead for the first time when Kennadi Hogan advanced on a throw. Hartselle would go on to win the game 6-4 with Hope Cain getting the pitching win.

Hartselle would then take on the Danville Lady Hawks. The Tigers would take the lead in the second inning.
