Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Swimmers Set a World Record

288 Cypress-Fairbanks ISD swimmers and swim coaches set a new Guinness World Record for most individuals to swim in a single relay in less than an hour. A Guinness World Records representative attended the relay to make it official.

World Record Event Spotlights Aquatics Program

Cypress Lakes High School head swim coach, Morgan Burcham, organized the event at the CFISD Natatorium. “I emailed all of the coaches in Cy-Fair and explained that this is an awesome opportunity for all of us to come together and showcase what a wonderful aquatics program we have and I asked everyone to sign up,” said Burcham. “I have a super fascination with breaking Guinness World Records, and after today I will hold one myself because I swam in the relay.”

All 12 CFISD high schools participated in the record-breaking event,  which also served as a fundraiser to support the Maeve the Brave water polo scholarship fund. Burcham will submit paperwork to the Guinness World Records offices for the record to become official.
