EPHS celebrates a victory but falls short of breaking world record

El Paso News

El Paso High School attempted to break a Guinness World Record Saturday afternoon for the largest high school reunion ever. In order to break the record, EPHS needed to have 3,300 alumni, faculty and staff members on the field after the football game.

El Paso’s oldest school fell about 700 people shy of the record with 2,600 people counted. The record still sits in Tacoma Washington which was set in 2006.

Despite not going into the record books, EPHS still celebrated a historic 100th birthday with a football victory. The Eagles won the annual “Battle of the Claw”.
