Arjun Mahanty takes home Heart of a Knight Award

Arjun Mahanty is a four-year varsity baseball player who models exceptional character, great work ethic, and how to be a great teammate. When I ask Arjun’s teammates about what makes him such a good leader, I get the following responses;

–        “He shows a commitment to helping each of us.”

–        “He’s consistently respectful and supportive.”

–        “He’s a good example of someone who is committed to a team.”

From a coaching standpoint, Arjun is humbled, hungry, and extremely intelligent. He listens actively, demonstrates reliability, and has shown a tremendous commitment to the team over the last four years.

With that being said, Arjun has also been one of the most talented and successful players in the baseball program every year for the last three years. He has earned two PAL Bay 2nd Team All-League Awards in his Sophomore and Junior years. In his senior year he is currently hitting .373 with 19 hits, 17 RBIs, 5 doubles, and 6 stolen bases (while missing 4 games due to a hamstring injury). Arjun is well on his way to finishing the season strong and possibly earning a 1st Team Award this year in the PAL Bay.

Academically, Arjun holds 4.0 weighted GPA, and will attend The University of the Pacific next year.

Arjun also played 3 years of boys’ basketball.
