The Kuyahoora Cougars are Pop Warner National Champions after a huge win at Disney World in Florida.
The team competed in Walt Disney World this past Tuesday, Dec. 4, and took home the winning trophy.
The girls qualified for this championship after competing in the regional competition in Trenton, New Jersey back in November.
Since the summer, the team has been training and fundraising for this trip.
The Cougars have shown that with hard work, dedication, and spirit, even a small team from a small community can rise to the top.
There will be a parade in honor of their win on Saturday, Dec. 8. It will start at 10 a.m. in Poland, down through Newport and around Middleville. A celebration is to follow at the Newport Firehouse from 10:45 a.m. until noon. All their friends, family, and neighbors are encouraged to come out and support the team.
There were six local teams competing in this competition.
