The gloves in the Basile family pop three times per pitch.

The first comes when Island Trees sophomore pitcher Alannah Basile raises her arms high above her head then slaps her right leg with her glove on the way into her windup. The second comes when she slaps the side of her left leg just after her release. The third, and loudest of all, comes moments later when the ball reaches the glove of the catcher, older sister Samantha.

"It has to do with my timing," Alannah Basile said of the glove slaps. "I get more momentum going back and forth."

The three-pop routine has become a familiar sound, largely because hitters haven't been putting the bat on the ball very often against Basile. That was the case Friday as Island Trees beat host Seaford, 11-2, in Conference ABC-I softball.

Island Trees (10-1) entered the game knowing they had already won the conference based on a tiebreaker, but wanting to be entirely sure they played under the motto, "Leave No Doubt."

The game was never in doubt as Island Trees jumped out to an early, comfortable lead and Basile allowed five hits, one walk and two runs with nine strikeouts in a complete game.

"We go into every inning like it's a 0-0 game," Alannah Basile said. "We don't get overconfident if we're doing good."

She was 2-for-3 with three RBIs, including a two-run double in the first inning. Nicole Pellegrino ignited a four-run second with a two-run single. Tori Tedeschi added an RBI single and Alannah Basile hit a sac fly for a 6-0 lead.

Seaford (3-9) got on the board in the fourth when Jessica Fischetti hit a two-run single up the middle to score Toni Ann Medaglia and Hannah Spinola to cut the lead to 6-2.

Island Trees' Brittany Ciaramitaro and Meghan Acton each had three hits. Pellegrino finished 3-for-5 with four RBIs.

"We just have to keep doing what we're doing," Pellegrino said, "and leave no doubt."
