APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - eTradeWire -- Desert Vista Elementary School students learned how they literally stack up when the Mustangs learned they helped break the Guinness World Record in sport stacking. Some 638,503 stackers from 2,734 schools and organizations participated in the global event.

During the course of Guinness World Records Day, sport stackers from all reaches of the world were stacking up and down stacking various pyramids in prescribed patterns at lightning speed for at least 30 minutes, all combined with a variety of fitness activities. The event took place at DVES on Nov. 14, but it wasn't until December that the school received the official announcement that the record had been broken.
