Argyle's outfielder and pitcher Dillon Carter is shown at the 4A UIL baseball state championship game at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on June 6 in Austin. 

Five Argyle players were named to the Class 4A UIL baseball state all-tournament teams as selected by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association.

Chad Ricker, Austin King, Preston King and Bo Hogeboom were included on the 11-man team, and Dillon Carter was named the MVP.

Ricker threw a shutout in the Eagles’ semifinal win over La Vernia while allowing just four hits, and he went a combined 4-for-6 with three RBIs at the plate in two games. Austin King reached base in all seven of his plate appearances, Preston King went 3-for-6 with three RBIs and Hogeboom was 3-for-5 with three RBIs.

Carter went 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs and also threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings out of the bullpen to get the save in Argyle’s 6-3 win over Sweeny in the state championship.
