NEWPORT- After winning the cheerleading National Championships, the Kuyahoora Cougars return home to a champions welcome. The Newport Fire Department along with the Poland Fire Department welcomed the cheer squad home with an escort through town.

Locals and parents lined the streets with signs welcoming the group home.

The team traveled to Walt Disney World to compete in the Cheerleading National Championships where they won.

"I also had a quote by walt disney in my house that says if you can dream it you can do it and this is proof of that, this is proof of that. Because who would have ever thought that a small group of girls from such a small town would have ade it and we did." said Head Coach Laura Allen.

Because they won nationals at Disney, the girls are set to go onto another championship. The YCADA global Championships are set to be held in Atlantic city this January.
