As a journalist I love covering lax events and finding out that siblings are playing in the same event.
That’s the case with twin sisters from Florida, Anna and Sarah Palmisano. Anna Palmisano is on the UA South Highlight Team. And Sarah is playing in the 2020 Uncommitted game:
It was fun to do the Q&A with these two because even though some of their answers were identical. Others were very opposite. For instance their favorite movie and song.
Here’s the PRLB Q&A with the Palmisano Twins
