Argyle Boys Win Third State Title In Convincing Fashion

By Steve Gamel

Argyle didn’t just win its third straight Class 4A state title in boys golf. It did so rather convincingly.

With an eight-stroke lead entering Day 2 of the state tournament on May 23, the Eagles rolled to a two-day score of 633 and 13-stroke win over second place Fredericksburg. Argyle has won three crowns with almost an entirely new lineup of golfers each time. This was their sixth straight appearance, which was held at Apple Rock Golf Course at Horseshoe Bay.

This year’s winning team was comprised of Parker Love, Luke Griggs, Will Gilster, Logan Diomede and Cole Wilson. Griggs finished with a two-day score of 153, good enough for fifth place overall. Love shot another 79 on Day 2 to finish eighth while Diomede shot 161. Gilster and Wilson shot 82 and 83, respectively, on Day 2.

The fact that Argyle won so handily may have come as a bit of a shock to some. The Eagles finished third at the region tournament after becoming accustomed to winning that event in recent years. They also lost three seniors off last year’s team. But that didn’t seem to affect them on the state’s grandest stage.

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