AUSTIN — On his first trip to the Class 4A state tournament, Argyle freshman Chase Roth came away with the ultimate prize.

Roth defeated Carrollton Creekview junior Jorge Santos 7-1 to claim the state title in the 106-pound weight class. Roth finished the year with a record of 29-1.

This year, the University Interscholastic League split the weight classes between 5A and 4A for the first time. Roth bested 15 opponents at the state tournament.
