The No. 1 Nighthawks had four finalists and six wrestlers finish in the top four of their respective weight classes. Newtown’s Joe Accousti (170), Andy Hubina (195) and Tom Long (220) each finished second.

Fairfield Warde finished seventh while Southington was 22nd in a field of 69 teams. The last state wrestler to win here was Enfield’s Sam Gauvine in 2006.

Warde finished with four placewinners.

Freshman Noah Zuckerman placed eighth and senior Jack Price went 6-2 and finished fifth.

Tim Kane went 6-0 with five pins. Charlie Kane also finished 6-0.
