As if Shiner's dominance wasn't apparent enough on the field at the state tournament, the Lady Comanches ruled the ballot box afterward as well.

The 2016 state champion Lady Comanches (31-5) placed nine players on the Class 2A all-state tournament team, including state championship game MVP pitcher Cece Darilek.
Other Shiner all-tournament players were catcher Madison Jalufka, first baseman Kori Landman, second baseman Lauren Schuette, third baseman Bethany Nevlud, shortstop Kailey Williams and outfielders Mackinly Pilat, Hannah Nevlud and Taylor Wenske.
Windthorst utilty player Breann Schreiber was the only non-Shiner player on the 2A all-tournament squad.
Shiner led all classifications with nine players on the 10-player all-tournament team. The next closest team, 3A champion West, had eight all-tournament selections.
The Lady Comanches won the state title for the second straight year and earned the program's sixth overall state championship. They defeated Harleton 13-2 in a 10-run-rule shortened, five-inning 2A semifinal, and they topped Windthorst 13-0 -- also stopped in the fifth inning by 10-run rule - to win the crown.
"I told (my teammates), I said 'Wouldn't it be something if we played 10 innings at the state tournament?'" Landman said after the championship game. "And they were like, 'Shut up.' They were like, 'That's not going to happen.'"
