To say the Argyle Lady Eagles are on a hot streak would be a understatement.
Over the past seven weeks the Lady Eagles rallied from a weak start to the District 9-4A race to now find themselves in the final four of the UIL Class 4A state tournament this week at Garland's Curtis Culwell Center.
Argyle returns to the state tournament for the fifth time in the past six years. The Lady Eagles (26-18) will face Glen Rose (48-1) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night in the semifinals. Needville (39-6) will meet Liberty Hill (36-13) at 11:30 a.m. Friday in the other 4A semifinal.
The Class 4A finals will be played at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Argyle stood 1-2 after the first three matches to open 9-4A play in late September but since then have now won 11 of its past 12 matches to earn its berth in the state tournament.
In the 4A Region II finals on Saturday the Lady Eagles faced the Krum Lady Cats, the 9-4A champion, and Argyle punched its ticket to the final four with a with a four-set victory, 25-23, 23-25, 25-22, 25-16.
Glen Rose is the Region I champion after knocking off Andrews Saturday in a three-set victory. Liberty Hill won the Region III championship after defeating Hargrave in three sets. Needville claimed the Region IV title with a three-set win against Navarro.
