Staples’ George Harrington defeated Hall’s Hugh Wells 7-3 to repeat as a Class LL champion. Harrington’s win this year was at 220 pounds. He won at 285 last year.

Danbury won the Class LL championship for the 19th time in the past 23 years.

Danbury, the state’s top-ranked team, survived a strong challenge from Trumbull and claimed the state title during the tournament this weekend at Trumbull High School.

Danbury scored 250 points with Trumbull scoring 210.5. Southington (175), Warde (150.5) and Staples (108) rounded out the top five.

Staples’ Jacob Qiu won by decision over Trumbull’s Jason Mercado, 9-6 to finish fifth at 170.

Terry Brannigan of Staples pinned Connor Devega of Norwich Free Academy at 3:14 to place fifth at 120.

Jacob Rizy of Staples was sixth at 285

The Hatters had nine wrestlers reach the semifinals and six reach the weight-class finals with three claiming individual championships. For the second consecutive year, they’ll have 11 wrestlers in the 14 weight classes at the State Open, a fact that surprised even their head coach.

“If you had told me that we’d do this at the beginning of the year, I’d have said that’s crazy,” Danbury coach Ricky Shook said. “I thought we were going to bring eight or nine and today, we got 11, which is awesome.”
