The University Interscholastic League honored Argyle High School for its 2017 Conference 4A Lone Star Cup victory.

The UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presentation took place during halftime of Argyle’s football game against Abilene Wylie High School at Argyle Eagle Stadium.

“The UIL Lone Star Cup rewards the best overall academic, athletic and music programs in the state of Texas,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt.

“To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute. The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”

With state championships in academics, girls basketball and boys golf, state runners-up in marching band and volleyball, and state semifinalists in boys basketball, Argyle earned 128 total Lone Star Cup points for the 2016-17 school year. The Eagles also earned points in UIL football, girls and boys soccer, softball and baseball.

This is the sixth-consecutive and eighth overall UIL Lone Star Cup victory for Argyle High School.

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 school year.
