Quincy High School's famed Q-City Pommers competed at the Illinois Drill Team Associations state competition on Saturday, March 16 at Assembly Hall on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign. They had qualified earlier at a regional competition in Highland, Illinois.

The squad brought home two trophy's. They placed 2nd in the state in the "pom dance" category, missing first place by a mere .8 of a point. They also won 5th place hardware in the "pom jazz" category.

Upon arriving back in Quincy the pom squad was greeted on Sunday morning by Quincy Mayor John Spring who offered his congratulations and talked about the tradition of excellence the pommers have achieved as well as how they make the city proud. They were then treated to a ride around town on a firetruck from the Quincy Fire Department.

Following the ride the pommers were honored with a reception at Quincy High School where several speakers took turns talking about the squads dedication, professionalism and talent while extending even more congratulations.

On behalf of KICK-FM and Townsquare Media... great job ladies!
