Pandole began his collegiate squash career as the Diplomats'
number five. By the end of his freshman season, he had climbed into
the third position. After his freshman season, he never played
below the number one spot in the lineup again.
Pandole was a three-time All-American, earning first team honors twice and second team honors once. He was selected to the NISRA All-Tournament team as a senior. He was named the team's MVP as a junior and a senior, and served as the team's captain in his senior season. That year, Pandole defeated five All-Americans and all four of his losses came against All-Americans. He did not drop a single game in 13 of his 15 wins and defeated two of three professional players he faced. The loss was to a player ranked in the top 50 in the world. Pandole was also a team captain. Prior to his arrival in Lancaster, Pandole was the 1990 Indian Junior National runner-up. In 1991, Pandole was selected to represent India at the Asian Junior Squash Championships.
As a junior, he toppled nine of his fellow All-Americans, including top-ranked Harvard's number one who went on to earn the National Championship. Pandole finished ranked seventh in the nation by the USSRA, the second best finish for an individual player in F&M's history. In his sophomore campaign, Pandole took down six All-Americans, and did not lose to a player who was not an All-American at year's end. At the time of his graduation, Pandole ranked second in career wins at F&M and remains in the top ten at the time of his induction.
