EKU students/fans hit the road to cheer on Colonels

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) "We're going to St. Louis, gonna watch the Colonels beat Kansas," said EKU student Nicholas Fazzio.

Dawning their EKU maroon, students loaded up two buses, buying tickets at $35 a head, while boosters and the EKU dance team loaded up on a third, to make the five hour trip west.

If the Colonels upset the Kansas Jayhawks this afternoon, they'll only have to pay an additional $35 for the next game in the St. Louis regional, and that covers the game ticket, transportation and lodging.

"It's a huge different experience that we don't get to experience at Eastern a whole lot, so it's a heck of an experience and I'm excited," said Fazzio.

"It's a once in a lifetime chance, it's gonna be awesome," added J.P. Fisher.

EKU housing and the student government are helping foot the bill for the one hundred students.
