Argyle made the most of a very talented roster and reached the state tournament for the first time in school history.
The key members on Class 3A’s runner-up team were honored when the All-District 10-3A team was released. Six Eagles, including head coach Ricky Griffin, earned superlatives on the all-district team.
Argyle senior pitcher and first baseman, Parker Mushinski, was named the 10-3A most valuable player. Mushinski, a Texas Tech signee, was 7-2 on the mound this season with a 2.47 ERA while also batting .374 with nine home runs and 37 RBIs.
Argyle junior catcher Ryley Balch was 10-3A’s offensive MVP after he batted .386 with three homers and 37 RBIs. Senior Brandon Boyzuick shared defensive MVP honors with Celina sophomore Shane Gerths, and Argyle senior pitcher Drew Gooch, who’s headed to TCU, was named co-pitcher of the year.
Argyle junior Hunter Markwardt was one of 10-3A’s newcomers of the year, and Argyle’s coaching staff was named the best in the district. Aubrey had four players make the 10-3A first team.
The Eagles lost to College Station 5-2 in the 3A state championship game last week in Austin.
In the area’s other 3A district, Sanger senior Ted Wisdom was chosen as District 9-3A’s most valuable player. Wisdom will play college baseball at Northern Oklahoma College in Tonakawa.
Sanger junior Anthony Escobedo was the 9-3A’s offensive MVP, while junior Ross Scott was a co-pitcher of the year and sophomore T.J. Self was the district’s newcomer of the year. Sanger’s coaching staff, led by head coach Steve Ford, was named the best in the district.
Sanger reached the Class 3A Region II quarterfinals, where it lost to Argyle.
Krum senior Colton Lucas also earned co-pitcher of the year honors in 9-3A.
In District 5-5A, Ryan’s lone first-team representatives were junior catcher Cade Kennedy and junior outfielder and pitcher Ryan Burks.
Guyer junior Aaron Studdard was tabbed as District 5-4A’s defensive player of the year, while senior Daulton Horton was the district’s pitcher of the year, and freshman Connor Herriage was the district’s newcomer of the year.
Lake Dallas senior shortstop Jackson Owens, who has signed with Florida State, was a first-team selection. Owens was joined by Lake Dallas sophomore catcher Christian Boulware and Denton senior Mark Johnson.
In District 9-2A, Ponder freshman Shane Scott was named the district’s newcomer of the year. Pilot Point’s lone representatives on the All-District 12-2A team were junior Luke Greenwood and sophomore Brandon King, both of whom were second-team picks.
