Adair County High School Cheerleaders Coach Julie McQueary and the victorious squad and entourage arrived back at home base this afternoon at 2:45pmCT, escorted through town in their Shockley Tours coach by Columbia City Police, Emergency Medical Service units, Columbia/Adair County Fire Department units, and were followed by a long line of cars. It was all in a din of celebratory sirens and horns, past store fronts readied for the parade and cheering bystanders waving placards

They were met in the parking lot at Adair County High School by well-wishers numbering well over 100, there for homecoming hugs, photo opportunities, and a chance to cheer another Adair County group strengthening its own long Tradition of Excellence in a spectacular way this year.

The squad swept every category they could win. With championships in 1) The Varsity Super Big Category 2) On the parents and boosters category for the CANAM Crazies, 3) In the Stunt Category, and 4) With a Number one Individual Cheerleader award for Breanna Meeks.
