MOUNT WASHINGTON - After a short time to bask in the honor of winning the Sixth Region Tournament, the Bullitt East Chargers will go back to prepare for the Boys’ Kentucky State Tournament which will be held next week at Rupp Arena in Lexington.
Bullitt East will take on Fifth Region champion Bardstown, a team with only four losses this season, next Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
This will be Bullitt East’s first trip to the Sweet Sixteen since 2005. That team lost in the first round of the State Tournament to Ballard, the eventual runners-up that year.
Tickets for the game will be made available Thursday at Bullitt East for $8. Sixth Region Champion T-shirts will also be available for $15.
