The Wheatley Athletic Program is honored to recognize the accomplishments of Samantha Palazzolo. Samantha has signed a letter of commitment to continue her impressive academic and athletic career at Bentley University, in the Northeast 10 Conference.
Samantha is a returning four year starter and two year captain for the Wildcats 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 our most complete athletes, Samantha has also earned “All Conference” recognition in both Varsity Field Hockey and Varsity Indoor Track. Samantha performs at the highest level on the field and is a role model to all of our athletes. She has been a major contributor to field hockey, winter track and softball. This year we had to cancel our field hockey program due to low numbers, again, Samantha displayed her tremendous athletic ability by joining the Varsity Soccer team. As a novice to the sport of soccer, Samantha made a positive contribution as a replacement goalie in a must win game.
Samantha’s outstanding transcript speaks for itself. Her outstanding 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 Samantha does in the classroom and athletic venues she still finds the time to participate in community service and volunteer her talents to help others. Samantha finds a way to make a difference. Samantha is also a talented artist, a member of the Art Club and a featured artist at the CW Post High School Art Exhibit.
In March, Samantha signed her Letter of Intent to attend Bentley University to compete in softball. Her academic scholarship and athletic prowess will allow Samantha Palazzolo to continue her pursuit of excellence. We are all very proud of her. Congratulations to Samantha and her family!
