Oak Trust Credit Union Athlete of the Week: Priscilla Palermo
Glenbard East freshman tennis player Priscilla Palermo hasn’t taken long to prove herself against high school competition. Palermo has anchored the Rams’ lineup from the No. 1 singles spot all season and was dominant at the Downers Grove South sectional. She didn't drop a set en route to the title in the singles draw.
She has been playing tennis since age five and has competed in USTA tournaments since age 10, even qualifying for national tournaments. Palermo, the Oak Trust Credit Union Athlete of the Week, spoke with sports reporter Dan Santaromita about her successful season.
Update: Palermo was defeated in the third round of the main draw at state on Thursday, but won three consolation matches on Friday before falling in the seventh consolation round. Palermo finished 5-2 at state and placed in the top 16.
