The Highlanders found a spark early in their District 16-6A opener against Conroe on Tuesday evening and kept fueling the flames on their way to a 15-2 victory in five innings at Scotland Yard.

“It always feels good to come out and get the first district ballgame,” Eastman said. “Conroe’s pretty good this year — they’ve got a great record at [10-5], and we knew we were going to have our hands full with an excellent team. They just keep improving, and I was proud of the way our guys responded.”
