Baseball: Argyle dominates 9-4A all-district team

Argyle was well represented on the All-District 9-4A team, this after a dominating season in which the Eagles won 25 games and strung together another deep playoff run.

Senior pitcher Connor Mushinski was named most valuable player and was one of four Argyle players to win a superlative award. Dillon Carter, a sophomore, took home offensive player of the year while fellow sophomores Sean Bolin and Chad Ricker were named co-newcomer and co-utility player of the year, respectively.

Sanger junior Katz Higa shared newcomer honors with Bolin. Higa was the only superlative recipient for the Indians, who along with Argyle bowed out in the third round of the Class 4A playoffs.

Argyle coaches were named the district's coaching staff of the year.

Players in each district are chosen by district coaches, who consider only district performances.

In other districts involving Denton-area teams, Aubrey junior Taylor Swarbrick shared the District 11-4A MVP award with Melissa's Tate Whittington. Swarbrick was the only Chaparral to earn a superlative honor despite the team making it to the second round of the postseason.

In District 5-5A, Denton sophomore Brooks Bedinger was named newcomer of the year.
