Argyle baseball knows how to play Sweeny, so it produced back-to-back successful UIL 4A state championship game performances. The Eagles beat the Bulldogs 5-0 in the 2018 title game, and followed that with Thursday's 6-3 win at The University of Texas at Austin's UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
"That game was defined by our team," said Argyle head coach Ricky Griffin. "[The players have] been here enough, they've been in enough situations like that, and there was no panic. They just knew they were going to win. I'm very proud of them."
The top two public school baseball teams in Texas may have played for Saturday's UIL 5A state championship, but it was all No. 2 Colleyville Heritage (39-3) in a 14-2 six-inning win against No. 1 Georgetown (41-5-1) at Round Rock's Dell Diamond. It wrapped up a remarkable run, which included a title in its first trip to state.
Aggressive base running allowed Georgetown to take the early lead, but it wouldn't last. Wyatt Childress had a single in the Eagles' only scoring inning, and Cole Posey followed with a walk. They stole third and second respectively, and scored on Noah Thompson's RBI.
