Argyle was presented with the Lone Star Cup award during halftime of Friday’s home game against Abilene Wylie High School.
This is the fifth time Argyle High School has received this award from the University Interscholastic League.
They’ve previously won in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2013.
The winners of this award are announced each summer and given to each of UIL’s five classifications based on state championships and performance in the district.
Scoring the highest number of points (102 points) in the UIL 3A division, Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright says she is humbled by the talents of our high school.
“I am struck by the magnitude of the accomplishment and how difficult and daunting it is to acquire the highest number of UIL points in the state,” Dr. Wright said.
Assistant Superintendent Chris Daniels agrees. He says a third consecutive win shows the school can win the award as a small district (2A in 2006 and 2009) and as a growing 4A district.
“To those outside the district, it shows that Argyle provides a high-quality, well-rounded student centered educational experience,” Daniels said. “We are able to reach max potential in areas of academics, fine arts, band and athletics.”
