In the field events the Argyle men’s team won three out of five, including the high jump event where senior Trent McCloud won with a height of 6 feet 4 inches.

In the shot put event Preston Wilson won  district with a throw of 47 feet 4 inches, and for the discus event he threw for 139 feet 4 inches.

“This has been our goal all year—  to win district,” Preston said. “It has been a tough battle against Decatur for the district title, so every point we can get counts and what ever I can do to contribute to this program I was going to make it happen.”
