It sounds like it might be a pest problem. I had squash vine borers last year, and the first thing I noticed was wilting like you describe. Look around your stems for holes or powdery debris, and if you see any, you need to mound up dirt around the plant so that it can put down new roots above the intruder. Squash bugs also go after zucchini, but I'm not sure what their damage looks like.
