Pennell had a stellar weekend to kick off her collegiate career. She posted nine hits for a .600 average with two doubles and two homers. Pennell’s week was highlighted in a win over Queens, as the freshman crushed a two-run walk-off homer to propel the Falcons to a 5-3 win over the Royals. In her first career at bat, Pennell laced an RBI single and didn’t slow down the rest of the weekend.
Makenzie was slated to be a part of the Alexander Central Softball team this Spring but elected to graduate early and enter Pfeiffer and play for former Lady Cougar Coach Monte Sherill.
