Laramie High School seniors Hudda Herrera and Jennifer Aadland were both named Monday to the Wyoming Coaches Association Class 4A All-State first team.

The award marked the second straight year for Aadland and the first for Herrera.

Aadland finished second in Class 4A in scoring at 17.7 points a game while also finishing third in rebounding at 10.4 rebounds a contest. The 6-foot-2 forward led Class 4A in blocked shot with 4.5 per game and was eighth in 3-point shooting at 37 percent.

Herrera averaged 15.8 points during his senior season to lead the Plainsmen, ranking him ninth in Class 4A. The 6-7 forward also averaged 10.8 rebounds, good for second in Class 4A, and was just one of two 4A players — Jackson’s Nate Fairbanks was the other — to average a double-double this season in points and rebounds.

No other LHS basketball players were named All-State.

Aadland was joined by sophomores Kylee Cox and Kayla Vasquez in making the Class 4A East All-Conference teams. Aadland was a first-team pick while Cox was named to the second team and Vasquez honorable mention.

Cox was second on the Lady Plainsmen in scoring at 8.2 points while leading the team in free throw shooting (73 percent) and averaged 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Vasquez averaged 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds.

Joining Herrera on the East All-Conference boys team from Laramie were sophomore Christian Mickelson (second team) and seniors Will Tyser, Brady Epler and Shane Forry on the honorable mention team.

Mickelson averaged 11.5 points – second on the team – while Tyser chipped in 9.9 points, Forry 2.9 and Eppler 2.6.
