Gillette senior guard Trey Hladky got his final state basketball tournament off to a good start Thursday when he was named the Wyoming Gatorade Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

The 5-foot-9 Hladky enters Thursday's Class 4A quarterfinal game against Natrona County averaging 27.4 points, 4.7 assists and 2.4 steals per game.

Hladky is the state's first back-to-back winner of the award since current University of Wyoming point guard Cody Kelley did it back in 2013-14, also for Gillette.

Hladky has signed to play college basketball at Chadron State College.
