Given to the school with the most earned points from UIL events, the Lone Star Cup was presented on Friday, Sept. 22, raising Argyle’s Lone Star Cup holdings to eight.

“No one gets to do something like this, especially this many times,” principal James Hill said. “We are very fortunate.”

Achieving the award had a lot to do with help from all the UIL teachers and students committing to and following the standards that have been set since day one.

“To win, every student, teacher and coach across all areas of UIL competition must contribute,” the UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt said. “The winning schools and communities should be proud of this outstanding achievement.”

Earning the award reveals the hard work of each individual involved in UIL activities.

“We cannot just be good at one thing,” Hill said. “To win the Lone Star Cup, you have to be strong in many areas. It shows consistency over a long period of time. It shows that it was not just an accident. If you win it eight times, it means that you have shown excellence.”

This award represents how well rounded Argyle is in every category, from athletics to fine arts to academics.

“I do not think there is any other award that anyone offers that really showcases everything in the school,” band director Kathy Johnson said. “I think that it brings everybody together.”

The halftime presentation of the cup at the Eagle’s game facing Abilene Wylie was the sixth consecutive presentation for Argyle.

“I feel really blessed to be apart of it,” Hill said. “Were very fortunate .”  

The achievement and Argyle’s name can be credited to the students and their work ethic.

“We do not just want to be Argyle good, we want to be state wide good,” athletic director Coach Rogers said. “That’s the vision.”
