The Vikings (9-0) go into the state playoffs as the top seed in Class 1-A East. They also get a bye in the first round of the state playoffs. They were also the only team in the poll not to lose a game on the field this season.
Havelock (10-0) lost to New Bern during the season but the Bears had to forfeit that and four other games for ineligible players.
Here’s how the final poll looks.
