I met up with Gabriella Palmeri at a park in Folsom that had sand volleyball courts to do our cover and Athlete of the Year (Fall) feature shoot for SportStars Magazine. Fitting location for the four-year varsity senior outside hitter from St. Francis High School in Sacramento, who will head to the beaches of Malibu and attend Pepperdine University this fall.

Gabby downplayed the thought that she could pursue some modeling, but the ease I had working with her and the photos certainly proved otherwise. She claims that she is 5-11ish, but depending on where you get your stats she's as tall as 6-1. Speaking of stats, too many to list in a stellar career with the Troubadours, but here's a few from the 2012-13 season.447 kills, 403 digs, 36 blocksand 30 serving aces. Palmeri was selected Division 1 first-team All-State and MVP by MaxPreps.com.

Palmeri led her team to Division 1 Sac-Joaquin Section and CIF Northern Regional championships both times over the Granite Bay High School Grizzlies. St. Francis lost to Marymount-L.A. in the state championship finals 3-1. The Troubadours finished with an overall record of 38-3.
