HIGH SCHOOL: Palazzolo concluded his scholastic career at No. 92 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Boys Class of 2014 Rankings. 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. He tied for 28th with a 6-over 78 at the Tournament of Champions state title event.
Palazzolo also tied for 18th at the AJGA's TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Florida, in April 2014. His three-round total of 10-over 223 (73-76-74) was just eight shots off the pace against one of the top fields in junior golf.
He earned First Team All-Shore Conference and Second Team All-State honors as a junior at Christian Brothers Academy in 2012-13. Palazzolo was the medalist of the Shore Conference Championship as a sophomore with a 3-under-par 69, placed in the top 10 at both the 2013 NJSIAA Non-Public A Sectional and Tournament of Champions events, and has helped CBA to back-to-back New Jersey Non-Public A state titles in 2012 and 2013.
He also posted six top-10 finishes during summer 2013, highlighted by a runner-up finish at the Big I New Jersey State Qualifier en route to a 32nd-place showing (of 108) at the Trusted Choice Big I National Championship this past August. Palazzolo's resume also includes a made cut at the New Jersey State Amateur, first alternate qualifiers at U.S. Open and USGA Public Links sectional qualifiers, a runner-up finish at the 2012 Metropolitan Golf Association (MGA) Boys Championship and round of 16 at the 2013 MGA Junior.
"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."
