New Hanover Wildcats win state championship

Story body

NEW HANOVER COUNTY -- The New Hanover High School boys basketball team rallied from a last minute deficit Saturday night to win a state championship for the first time in 39 years. The Wildcats won the 4A state championship game 39 to 35 against Zebulon Vance in Chapel Hill. Seven-footer Ty Walker was the game's MVP; he finished with 12 points and eight blocks. Senior guard James Beatty hit the go ahead shot with about a minute to play. After a couple of years of just falling short of reaching to title game the cats get to Chapel Hill this year and bring another title back to Wilmington.
