Argyle High School boy’s golf team, led by coach Brady Bell, finished with a two-day team score of 605 at the state tournament, reclaiming their 4A state title for the second consecutive year at Onion Creek in Austin, TX on April 25-26.

“We put in countless hours every week and we knew coming into this that if we left with anything other than gold we’d be heartbroken,” sophomore Luke Griggs said. “So I think that motivated us to go out there, play good, and focus every shot.

Senior, Tommy Parker, finished out the two days with a collective score of 145, placing third individually after a three way playoff for second and third place. Teammate Alex Isakson finished with an identical score.

“My parents and coaches are the reason I’m here, by supporting me and the team throughout my golf career, and it’s been a blessing,” Parker said. “Having my best friends there was awesome. I’m glad I got to share that experience with them.”

Finishing with a final score of 163, senior Will Blake put forth his best effort on the difficult course.

“On the 9th hole I was seven over,” Blake said. “[I had] a similar situation at regionals, and I told myself that I was going to break 80 my last tournament of my high school career. I just grounded it out.”

First year letterman and sophomore Luke Griggs moved to Argyle this year, and was immediately named to the varsity team. Griggs contributed a total score of 161.

“It’s an amazing feeling, and I’m blessed to come into a new school with people welcoming me to their team,” Griggs said. “Its been a great year.”

Youngest on the team, freshman Logan Diomede, pulled his weight finishing out both days of his first state tournament with a final score of 160.

“My mindset going into the tournament was putting 100 percent of my effort into every shot and taking my time,” Diomede said. “Performing is pretty simple, because everyone on this golf team is very competitive and driven to help the team out and win.”

The team played well considering the unpredictable weather conditions and trying course.

“The first day was great weather, but the second day the wind picked up much more and made the conditions much harder”, Isakson said.

The team is very proud of their accomplishments and credit the success to their coach.

“Coach Bell is one of the best coaches there is,” Diomede said. “He knows a lot about the game and how to teach it. He is also very competitive and cares a lot about our golf program.”
