Elizabeth Palmo selected as 2018 Player of the year
Monday, February 4th 2019
Barry Goldwater HS
It was recently learned that Elizabeth Palmo was selected as the 2018 Northwest Section "Singles" player of the year, as voted by the Northwest Section coaches. This is a high honor for any player as it denotates the overall best player of the year among the eight schools of the Northwest. This also is the first time any Goldwater player has been selected for this award.
The Bulldog senior defeated all other position one players in the Northwest section, and only had one regular season loss the entire year to a player outside the section. The “Black” level player contested three seasons on Varsity, and this season had a regular season winning mark of 13-3 (81.3%) from the singles one position. Plamo was also the team captain, offering valuable coaching to other players just learning the game. Congrats to a very valuable player.
