The Union County wrestling team posted its first win of the 2019-20 season on Nov. 23 at the 10-team Elwood Invitational. 

The Patriots defeated the Tri High Titans, 40-30, in addition to posting good scores in losses to Lapel (39-22) and Elwood (42-30).

“I was really pleased to see how well we responded with only 15 practices,” UC coach AJ Bryson said. “Wrestling is a rough sport and that isn’t much time to prepare for an invitational on opening day.”
