As the article says:
None of the individual waves making up the sound pulses traveled faster than c. In other words, Einstein's theory of relativity was preserved. This means one could not, for instance, shout a message faster than light.

Cute, for a highschool. As JesseM points out, nothing here violates any laws of physics.
