GOLDEN EAGLES: Argyle Wins 4A Golf State Championship

The Argyle Eagles did it again! The Eagle golf team won the Class 4A state championship on Tuesday at the Plum Creek Golf Course in Kyle.


The Eagles won by a convincing 22 strokes ahead of second place. The team was led by Gaven Lane, who finished second overall among individuals. This marked Argyle's first state title since 2017 and fourth in the program's history.


Both Argyle golf teams won state titles this year!


"I'm so happy for my seniors," Argyle coach Cody Vanderford said. "It's great that they got to end their careers with gold medals! We have known all year that we were one of the best teams and we played like it for the entire year. They were unflappable at the state tournament and it was a joy to coach them."

Congratulations to Gaven Lane, Zane Griggs, Blake Kelly, Justus Christman, Ethan Payne and Coach Cody Vanderford!
