He jumped 37 spots while helping lead Christian Brothers Academy to an undefeated regular season, No. 1 state ranking and a quartet of event titles en route to a third-place finish in New Jersey's Tournament of Champions during his senior season. He capped his summer prior to arriving at GW by winning the New Jersey State Golf Association Junior Championship.

He was the runner-up at the Galloway National Challenge (2-over 73), third at the Monmouth County Championship (1-under 71), fourth at the New Jersey Non-Public A Sectional (4-over 76) and tied for sixth at the Shore Conference Tournament (even-par 72), events all won by the Colts.

"I chose to attend the George Washington University because of the school's great academic reputation and the ability to study in such a vibrant city as Washington, D.C.," said Palazzolo. "I am excited to play for Coach Scheinost because of his proven ability to improve golf programs. His vision for the future of GW golf is something I want to be a part of and help achieve."
