Argyle Boys Golf Hoping for 3rd State Title

Argyle Boys Golf Hoping for 3rd State Title

by Steve Gamel

It’s been a month since the Argyle boys golf team qualified for state. The wait to get back on the course is finally over.

Argyle, the two-time defending Class 4A champs, will make their sixth straight appearance at the UIL state tournament May 22 and 23 at Apple Rock Golf Course at Horseshoe Bay near Marble Falls. The Eagles made their previous two title runs look relatively easy, but this year’s crew isn’t taking anything for granted.

“We’ve made a lot of progress since the fall and put ourselves in a position where we feel like we can win three in a row,” Argyle coach Brady Bell said. “I definitely think we have a chance. We’re just trying to win it, which is hard to do.”

Argyle’s team is comprised of Parker Love, Luke Griggs, Will Gilster, Logan Diomede and Cole Wilson. They got here after a strong showing at the Region II tournament April 24 and 25. The Eagles shot a two-day score of 614 to finish third – 20 shots behind first-place Canton and three behind Texarkana Pleasant Grove.

Love shot a 150 while Griggs came in at 152. Gilster and Diomede finished tied at 156 and Wilson shot 165. Argyle came in having won the last four region tournaments. Diomede and Griggs are the only holdovers from last year.

The team had previously finished second at state in 2013 and 2014 before winning it all in each of the last two seasons.

“We lost three seniors off last year’s team, but the two coming back got a taste of what it was like to be at state last year,” Bell added. “They were highly motivated to come back and hopefully have a chance to win it.”
