MILLBURN, N.J. — Millburn High School hosted the 15th Annual Paul Finn, Jr. Foundation Memorial Tournament on Saturday with Edison, Roselle Park and Watchung Hills. Millburn fell to both Edison (57-16) and repeat champions Watchung Hills (82-0). Millburn last won the Finn Duels, as they are known, in 2005. 

Forty years ago Millburn wrestler Paul Finn went undefeated with a 28-0 record. Save one forfeit, Finn pinned all 27 opponents he faced and won the state championship as a heavyweight. He is the only undefeated champion in state history. A few years after Paul's sudden death on April 21, 1999, at the age of 39, the Tournament began on Jan. 24, 2004

Millburn is 1-3 on the season and will next wrestle at Glen Ridge on Wednesday.
