Argyle High School will be honored Friday for its 2014 Class 3A University Interscholastic League Lone Star Cup victory during the halftime of Argyle’s game against Abilene Wylie High School.
The game begins at 7:30 p.m. at Argyle Eagles Stadium.
The presentation makes the fifth time Argyle High School has achieved the UIL Lone Star Cup honor, which is awarded each year to five high schools – one in each of five UIL classifications ranging from 1A to 5A.
The UIL Lone Star Cup honors the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state, according to Dr. Charles Breithaupt, UIL executive director.
Last school year, the Eagles were the reigning Conference 3A marching band state champions as well as football and academic state champions. Argyle also achieved state runners-up in girls basketball, boys golf and baseball, earning 102 total points for the 2013-14 school year toward the Lone Star Cup. Argyle also earned points in UIL volleyball, boys basketball and softball, according to a news release.
The winning schools in each of the five classifications receive a trophy as well as a $1,000 scholarship.
