AUSTIN, Texas — Rachel Hargis scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Robinson — coached by former Portales High coach Brenda Gomez — over Argyle 49-33 on Saturday to win the Class 3A girls’ state championship.
The 6-foot-4 junior center dominated under the basket on both ends as Robinson held Argyle to just three field goals in the first half.
Gomez, who coached Portales High School to five state championships, guided Robinson (34-5) to its second state title in school history and first since 1970.
Claire Pettibon scored 17 to lead Argyle (20-15). The Lady Eagles came in with the most losses in the state tournament, and their strong run through the postseason crashed hard in the first half when they went scoreless for nearly six minutes and hit just 3 of 17 shots.
