The Levittown Athletic Club girls’ softball team, Slammers, captured the Babe Ruth Metro New York Championship banner in the 16U bracket with 3 solid wins this summer. This was the Slammers second year in a row of capturing the Metro N.Y. banner (14U in 2009).
On the first day, bats came alive with a 15 hit attack in a solid 13-0 victory against their nemesis the Pelham Bay Belles. Pelham Bay and the Slammers have been doing battle over the last three seasons with the Slammers winning two of the last three championships. The Slammers then faced the Kingsbridge City Divas on the second day and soundly beat them with pitchers Ashley Massoni and Alannah Basile firing back-to-back no-hitters. The Slammers took the first game by a score of 7-1 and the second game 7-0. Meghan Acton, Alannah Basile, Samantha Basile and Shamar Sanchez led the hitting attack with multiple hit games over the weekend set, advancing the team to the Atlantic City regionals.
