A total of 170 lower school students from the Rosarian Academy participated in “2015 Stack Up!” to set a new Guinness Book of World Records in sport stacking on Nov. 12.
More than 3,100 schools from across the United States and around the world in countries such as Hungary, Germany, Israel, South Korea, New Zealand, Columbia and Taiwan worked together to beat last year’s number of 592,292 stackers. With a tally of 618,235 verified stackers as of Nov. 23, this year’s goal of 610,000 stackers was surpassed.
For three consecutive years, Rosarian Academy lower school students have helped break the world record for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day.” The entire Rosarian lower school, kindergarten through grade four, participated in the program in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Sport stacking has been called a “track meet for your hands at warp speed.” It’s an exciting sport where students up stack and down stack 12 specially designed cups called Speed Stacks in predetermined sequences as fast as they can. Stackers race against the clock, compete in relays and often combine sport stacking with fitness challenges as part of physical education classes. For more information, visit www.thewssa.com.
The Rosarian Academy, founded in 1925, educates students from early childhood through eighth grade.
