Give 44 High-Strung Kids Enough Rope and They'll Soar to a World's Record
With a week of practice, 44 volunteers from the fourth, fifth and sixth grades jumped a 100-foot rope five times without a miss. Their feat shattered the official world mark of four jumps set in 1975 by a mere 35 youngsters in Lorain, Ohio.
"It wasn't really hard," says 11-year-old Angie Hall. "It was just tricky getting everyone jumping at the same time."
St. Victor's principal, Louis Daniels, who dreamed up the leap and helped turn the rope, got a bear hug from his students. "They yelled, shouted and danced," says Daniels. "It was like they had won the World Series."
