The Havelock seniors were highlighted since last week’s Senior Night was canceled because of snow. One of those seniors, Ryan Davis, pinned his opponent in less than two minutes at the 138-pound weight class.

Swansboro beat C.B. Aycock in its first-round match. The Pirates won five matches by forfeit, an injury default, two pins and a tech. fall.

Andrews said his team was looking forward to a second-round match with Swansboro. The Coastal Conference foes were scheduled to wrestle last week for second place but the match was canceled and not rescheduled.

“In a way, us coaches were kind of looking past Rocky Mount a little bit,” Andrews said. “I was looking forward to Swansboro big time. I really wanted to wrestle those guys.

“That’s a heartbreaker.”

The Rams will next wrestle at the individual eastern regionals in Rocky Mount on Feb. 14 and 15.

“We just notified the team of who is wrestling at that tournament,” Andrews said. “Now it is down to the individuals. They know what they need to do and where they need to be.
