State Volleyball

Douglas' Haedyn Rhoades celebrates after the Bearcats won their Class 3A quarterfinal match against Powell on Nov. 1, 2018 at the Wyoming State High School Volleyball Championships at the Casper Events Center.

Rosters were announced Sunday night for the 2019 Wyoming Coaches Association North/South All-Star games. This year’s games — volleyball, girls basketball, boys basketball — will be held Saturday, July 20 at Casper College’s Swede Erickson Thunderbird Gym.

University of Wyoming basketball signees McKinley Bradshaw of Lyman and Paige Powell of Cody will both be in action, although Powell will play volleyball for the North squad. Bradshaw will play basketball for the South squad.

Powell was an all-state volleyball selection this past season for the Class 4A Fillies after earning 1A all-state accolades the previous two seasons while playing for Encampment.

Bradshaw was a four-time all-state hoops selection for the Eagles, who lost to Douglas in the 3A state championship game in March.

Bradshaw and Douglas’ Haedyn Rhoades are the only four-time all-state selections who will be playing in the all-star games. Rhoades will play volleyball for the South, which will be coached by Douglas’ Angela Rhoades, Haedyn’s mother.

The volleyball game also features three-time all-state honorees Hailey Anderson of Southeast and Grace Trandahl of Wright. Trandahl, who will play for the North, helped lead the Panthers to the 2A title this past season. The South team has three state champions from the 2018-19 season on its roster: Cokeville’s Janae Teichert and Leona Teichert and Lyman’s Kassidy Nelson.

Cody’s Stephanie Burch will coach the North volleyball team.

Joining Bradshaw on the South basketball team are three-time all-state selection Noelle Peterson of Encampment and four two-time all-staters, including Alex Trosper of 2A state champion Wyoming Indian.

The North girls basketball team has Madison Miller and Abby Geer of 4A state champ Thunder Basin.

Head coaches for the girls basketball game are Rawlins’ Katie Cline (South) and Shoshoni’s Max Mills (North).

The boys basketball game features three recent state champions in Lain Mitchelson of Farson (1A), Antonio Coando of Lander (3A) and Davion McAdam of Kelly Walsh (4A). Mitchelson, along with Cheyenne East’s Erik Oliver, were both three-time all-state honorees.

Head coaches for the boys basketball game are Green River’s Laurie Ivie (South) and Newcastle’s Allen Von Eye (North).

The North/South volleyball game starts things off at 1 p.m., followed by the girls basketball game at 3 p.m. and the boys basketball game at 5 p.m. Each game is restricted to graduated seniors.
