 MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East doubles team of Reese Milburn and Hunter Norris will compete in the Kentucky State Tennis Tournament starting on Thursday in Lexington.

Coming off a second straight runner-up finish in last week’s Eighth Region Tournament, the Charger pair are set to play at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday against Parker Harris and Eric Peterson of Fort Thomas Highlands. That pair were also runners-up in their 10th Region Tournament.

The first two rounds of the boys’ tournament will be played at Shillito Park in Lexington on Thursday. After that, the rest of the event will be played at the University of Kentucky.

Milburn, a senior, and Norris, a junior, are 16-2 this season. Both of the losses came to the number one doubles team from South Oldham.
