Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- North Dakota has always been one of the premier states for wrestling, but today was a history making day for the sport locally. A pair of West Fargo Packers wrestled for a national championship in the Junior Greco-Roman division.

At 126, West Fargo's Jordan Shearer took on Cub Yeager from Oklahoma..

Shearer took down Yeager early and then "gut-wrenched," or rolled him, 3 times to win 8-0.

It took just 37 seconds! Shearer, the 4-time State champion, is now a National champ!

Jordan Shearer- Greco National Champ (126 lbs): "It's an extremely awesome feeling to be able to come out here in my hometown and place in this national tournament with 48 states or however many are competing here. It's just an awesome feeling. I'm sure it's going to mean something great for me in the future."
