Wheatley’s Palazzolo commits to Bentley

The Island Now

The Wheatley School senior Samantha Palazzolo recently signed a letter of commitment to continue her academic and athletic career at Bentley University, in the Northeast 10 Conference.  

Palazzolo is a returning four-year starter and two-year captain for the Wildcat Softball team. Last season, she earned “Second Team All-State Softball” recognition. She is a returning “All-County 2015”, “All-County 2014” and “All-Conference 2013” member of our varsity softball team. 

As one of the school’s most complete athletes, Palazzolo has also earned “All-Conference” recognition in both Varsity Field Hockey and Varsity Indoor Track. 

She continually performs at the highest level on the field and is a role model to all of the school’s athletes. She has been a major contributor to field hockey, winter track and softball. 

This year, when the field hockey program was cancelled due to low numbers, Palazzolo displayed her tremendous athletic ability by joining the Varsity Soccer team. As a novice to the sport of soccer, she made a positive contribution as a replacement goalie in a must-win game.

Palazzolo’s outstanding transcript speaks for itself. Her efforts in the classroom, a member of the National Honor Society, and on the athletic fields, an All-County level performer, demonstrate an exceptional student-athlete.  

With all that Palazzolo does in the classroom and athletic venues she still finds the time to participate in community service and volunteer her talents to help others. She is also a talented artist, a member of the Art Club and a featured artist at the LIU Post High School Art Exhibit.
