Havelock wins conference tournament championship

Championships are no stranger to Havelock High School this season - and not just on the football field.

Friday night, the Rams defeated Jacksonville 71-63 to clinch their first conference championship since 1992.

Havelock captured a holiday tournament championship at West Carteret earlier this season, the regular season Coastal 3A Conference crown and now, the tournament title to complete a hat trick.

“I’m not ready to exhale yet because we still have some business to take care of. It was a great game and I think the fans got their money’s worth,” Havelock Bill Fryczynski said.

The Rams led 36-25 at halftime, and then star guard Kyran Bowman went off for 17 of his game-high 28 points in the third quarter.

Havelock built a lead as large as 16 and led by 13 heading into the fourth.

That’s when the Cardinals made their comeback behind 14 fourth-quarter points from guard Chris Smith. Jacksonville got as close as six, but couldn’t draw any closer.
