Title: Class of 1990

Robert Pahigian, your accomplishments in baseball and basketball are among the most memorable in Worcester State College athletic history. You played for four years and your abilities as an inspirational leader were evident as you were a captain of both teams.

You scored 619 points in basketball and had a career batting average of .373 and established an outstanding career fielding average of .970, which still stands today. In 1966, you handled 101 chances without committing an error for a 1.000 percent fielding record, an outstanding accomplishment.

You were a member of the baseball team that won 26 straight games in 1964 and 1965 and won the New England College Championship as well as two state titles. In 1965 you hit .442.

You established numerous records at Worcester State including the most runs scored (60), most doubles, (16), most triples, (10), most home runs, (6), most runs batted in, (58), and most career total bases, (130). The Lancers had a 41-10 baseball record during your career.

You are a teacher at Shrewsbury Middle School and you were the head and assistant coach in basketball and baseball at Shrewsbury High in the late 60's and early 70's.

Your excellence as a student-athlete, and later as a teacher-coach, reflects brightly on your alma mater.

Robert Pahigian, it is with great pride that we induct you into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
