The Lander senior helped the Tigers to a state tournament appearance this season.
Lander Valley High School senior Shanda Post finished her volleyball career with a spot on the Class 3-A West all-conference team.
The list was voted on by the Wyoming Coaches Association.
Post is the only player to make the 3-A West conference team from Lander Valley High School.
Post helped the Tigers finish third two weeks ago at the regional tournament in Lyman to qualify for the state tournament.
LVHS went 2-2 in regionals to get a No. 3 seed at the state tournament in Casper.
At state, the Tigers dropped decisions to Douglas in the opening round and to Newcastle in the consolation bracket.
Post was the outside hitter for LVHS and also played in the setter position.
LVHS coach Anndee Meyer said after the Tigers clinched a spot to the state tournament, Post is the one that every looks to on the court.
"She talked in the huddles, making sure the team is focused," Meyer said. "She has done a great job."
