The 2017 KHSAA state champion Union County wrestling team made a name for itself nationally this past weekend.

A few of its wrestlers competed in the National High School Coaches Association National Wrestling Championships in Virginia Beach.

The wrestlers represented well, with Micah Erin winning the national championship in his weight class, and with Saul Ervin, who finished third in his respective weight class.

Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff caught up with Union County head coach Jarvis Elam to discuss his program’s success on the national stage:
