CASPER — Bridger Valley will be front-and-center at the “Wyoming Coaches Association North-South All-Star Games” as the volleyball teams hit the court.

Ailee Bugas, Mountain View, and Kassidy Nelson, Lyman, were tapped as members of the South’s volleyball team. In addition, Lyman’s coach Brecia Hansen was named one of the two assistant coaches for the South. Hansen was named the 3A Volleyball Coach of the Year last December. At that time, she said this was her sixth season coaching in Lyman, after being a head coach in Idaho for eight years.
