And it didn't take the Lady Rebs long to grab control of this one.
Jessica Sellers slammed a three-run round-tripper over the fence in right-center to give Highland a 3-0 lead after the first inning of play.
Highland picked up three more runs in the second.
Karisa Hendrix scored on a wild pitch and then Alex Whitten knocked in Katheryn Bobo and Stephanie Shaw to round out the Lady Rebels' six-run victory.
Hendrix was tough as usual in the pitching circle, striking out 13 while allowing just two hits to Westside.
