COLUMBIA CITY — Though Columbia City’s boys and girls swim teams didn’t have a state-title, stand-out season — there was much to highlight about the small squad’s performance this year.

Eagle head coach Kristen Swonger, who is stepping down after this season, said every swimmer broke their personal record at least once, and some swam new events for the first time.

But for Vanessa Bills and the Whitley County Dazzlers, winning a cheerleading national title is somewhat shocking.

“I didn’t even realize we would be competing like that,” said Bills who is the Dazzler’s coach.

The special needs cheerleading squad is open to any age and gender in Whitley County who has a disability.

Last week, the squad took its first cross-country trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. to compete in Cheer Ltd.’s national competition.
