It all started Tuesday with Mt. Juliet High School shattering the old record, held by the Bank of Scotland in the United Kingdom, which had 191 participants during the Bank of Scotland National School Sport Week at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland, on June 7, 2011.

Mt. Juliet had 248 students complete the relay in the one-hour time limit. But on Wednesday, Wilson Central High students surpassed the MJHS mark, with 251 students completing the relay.

Thursday afternoon, despite trouble with the official clock, Lebanon and Watertown High students combined to narrowly beat the WCHS record with 252 students completing the relay.
