Coast Guard will honor the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. One of those victims, Jack Pinto, was a member of the Newtown youth team.

The Newtown wrestlers will have six exhibition matches against Waterford beginning at 5:45 p.m., before the Bears wrestle Merchant Marine at 7 p.m.

Admission for the match is free.
