COLUMBIA CITY â€” Bringing home a national award is cause for celebration for any team, squad or group.
But for Vanessa Bills and the Whitley County Dazzlers, winning a cheerleading national title is somewhat shocking.
â€śI didnâ€™t even realize we would be competing like that,â€ť said Bills who is the Dazzlerâ€™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.â€™s national competition.
