The University Interscholastic League has announced the trophy presentation dates for the 2019 UIL Lone Star Cup winners. Representatives from the UIL and Texas Farm Bureau Insurance will be on hand to present each winning school with the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy.

Argyle High School won its eighth consecutive Lone Star Cup at the end of last school year. It will be presented with the 2019 UIL 4A Lone Star Cup on Friday night during its home football game vs. Tyler Chapel Hill, according to a news release from Argyle ISD.

“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.”

The UIL Lone Star Cup is awarded annually to six high schools, one in each of the six UIL conferences (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A), based on their team performance in district and state championships. The winning schools in each conference receive the UIL Lone Star Cup trophy presented by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance and a $1,000 scholarship. The UIL Lone Star Cup program began during the 1997-98 school year.
