Richland High Students Attempt "Lap-Sit" Record

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Students at Richland High School may have broken a national high school record Wednesday morning.

Nearly 1,600 students participated in a school-wide "lap sit." The school's leadership class set up the exercise, requiring students to hold each other up while sitting down.

Student organizers say the exercise was meant to promote school unity.

"We usually do this as a leadership exercise to get everyone working together as a team...so we decided why not get our whole school involved," said student organizer, Sophie Fodhaisky.

There is no official word if a high school has ever attempted to break the "lap-sit" record. Ball State University currently holds the world record at 5,000 people.
