This coming Friday, during halftime at the Argyle Eagles’ football game, the high school will be presented with the Lone Star Cup trophy for 2015 UIL Lone Star Cup.
Argyle High set a school record with 127 University Interscholastic League Lone Star Cup points after earning state championships in academics, baseball, girls basketball, boys golf and marching band.
The Eagles were also state finalists in volleyball and football and earned more points in team tennis, boys basketball and boys and girls soccer.
“The UIL Lone Star Cup honors the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said Charles Breithaupt, UIL executive director. “It takes contributions from every student, teacher and coach in all facets of UIL competition to win this outstanding award. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this incredible achievement.”
The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to six high schools, one in each of the six UIL classifications (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A), based on their team performance in district and state championships. The winning schools in each classification receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship, also presented by the UIL.
The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 season.
The Conference 4A victory is Argyle’s fourth consecutive and sixth overall. Brad Kent, UIL director of music, will make the presentation at Friday’s game as Argyle takes on Paris starting at 7:30 p.m.
Presentations for 2015 UIL Lone Star Cup winners Brock and Austin Vandegrift will occur later this fall.
