NC Students Go For Guinness Tennis Record

Two North Carolina high school students are causing quite a "racket" in the tennis world.

Jackson Morton and Brian McSteen of Wilmington may have made history Sunday by playing in the longest single, non-professional tennis match ever recorded!

They did it by playing for 36 hours, three minutes and 11 seconds. That time broke the old record of more than 33 hours.

The pair started playing at 6:00am Saturday morning and wrapped up their game Sunday evening.

They were allowed to take a five-minute break after each hour of play.

The teens still need to get confirmation from officials at the Guinness Book of World Records.
