Argyle wins 8th Lone Star Cup

by Steve Gamel

Argyle High School has done it again. For the eighth year overall, and sixth in a row, Argyle was named one of the best high schools in Texas when the University Interscholastic League released its final standings for the annual Lone Star Cup on July 3. Argyle scored 128 points to run away with the top prize in Class 4A.

The award is given to one high school in each of the state’s six classifications and is based on points accumulated from victories throughout the year in athletics, fine arts, and academics.

Argyle has won in three different classes dating back to 2006, including every year
since 2009.

Argyle’s point total is the highest of any school this year – regardless of classification. Conroe The Woodlands scored 121 points to take the top spot in Class 6A. In all, only four schools scored more than 100 points.

Argyle High School was the only school in the Denton area to finish in the top 10 in any of the six classifications. Winning schools in each class receive the Cup trophy and a $1,000 scholarship.

Here are the final Top 10 Class 4A standings for the 2016-17 school year, as provided by the UIL:

Argyle – 128 pts
Abilene Wylie – 92 pts
Liberty Hill – 78 pts
Kennedale – 71 pts
Boerne – 70 pts
Andrews – 67 pts
Fredericksburg – 59 pts
Stephenville – 58 pts
Texarkana Pleasant Grove – 54 pts
Wimberley – 51 pts
