Sookdeo tied for seventh in the Region IX ranks with 44 RBIs in 54 games. He batted .310 this past season with four home runs, nine doubles, a .415 on-base average and .446 slugging percentage in 217 plate appearances. He walked 24 times which was sixth most in the Region. “He would always spend extra time hitting, or taking extra ground balls, or in the weight room,” Olsen said. “He was very dedicated to making himself a better player, and I am happy that he was able to reach his goal of signing Division I and furthering his education and baseball career.” Sookdeo was MCC’s primary designated hitter this past season and also played third base.
