Havelock wrestlers look to continue winning tradition

The Havelock Rams have a richly steeped history when it comes to being great in the sport of wrestling.

This year, they are young, but head coach Pat Whitford said that two junior leaders will get his younger kids to grow up faster and make for a dominant team.

“Havelock has a great wrestling tradition and our goals are to win the conference championships and then win the duals,” Whitford said.

“We want to be able to go out there and dominate our competition. Last year we won the conference championship, but lost the duals to Jacksonville, so we want to get them both this year,” Whitford said.

Jacksonville and West Carteret are expected to be the Rams’ most threatening competitors.

Ryan Davis and John Ellis are the two juniors that Whitford said are the team’s leaders and captains.

Davis placed sixth in the state as a freshman but didn’t place last year as a sophomore and Ellis has improved over both of his first two seasons.
