The school year may be over, but Argyle will have one more trophy to hoist before the end of the summer.

In the final Lone Star Cup update released by the University Interscholastic League, Argyle will take home its third straight Class 3A Cup, barring something bizarre happening before the standings become official on July 1.

The Eagles lead the 3A table with 102 points, 16 points ahead of second-place College Station. Argyle will win its fourth Class 3A Cup in the last six years and its fifth overall (the other one was the 2005-06 Class 2A Cup).

Points are awarded for success at the district and state level in UIL-sanctioned athletics and other UIL activities like marching band, one-act play and the state academic meet.

The Eagles won the Class 3A Division II football title and were runner-ups in the girls basketball state championships and the baseball state championships.

Argyle earned 20 of its 102 points from first-place finishes at the state academic meet and the marching band contest in 2012 (the points carry over for two years).

Argyle is one of only two schools in the entire state to have at least 100 total points. The other school? Southlake Carroll.

Below are the full standings, and here’s a link to the UIL Lone Star Cup page if you want to take how each sport is meticulously scored.
