Montgomery school sets world record

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Students at Montgomery's T.S. Morris Elementary School are going down in history as world record holders!

The students took part in Tuesday's 4-square record-breaker attempt, along with schools all over the nation.

Late Tuesday evening Montgomery Public Schools spokesman Tom Salter announced that the students had succeeded.

Around 300 students took time out of their busy day to take part in what the Guinness Book of World Records billed as the longest and largest simultaneous 4-square game.

Four-square is played by dividing a square into four equal sections. Then, a student takes a position inside each section and bounces a ball to other corners. The object is to keep the ball inside the square without touching any of the dividing lines.
