Davis beat Corinth Holders Cameron Brewer 4-1 in the title match of the 138-pound weight class.

“(Ryan) is fired up and ready to go,” said Havelock coach Tommy Andrews. “He is wrestling in the weight class he wants to be in. I don’t see anything getting in his way of his goals.”

John Ellis beat Southern Nash’s Jacoby Benjamin 4-1 to join Davis as Havelock’s two regional champions.
