Burnham and Highbridge pupils win Sedgemoor Schools Biathlon

Dozens of children from across the district have competed in the first Sedgemoor Schools Biathlon, held in Burnham-On-Sea this week.

The event was organised by Burnham Swim and Sports Academy and saw over 60 youngsters competing in a range of running and swimming events.

The team from Highbridge's King Alfred School won the event while Burnham's St Andrew's School was the runner-up.

Organiser Sarah Cox Conklin said the biathlon had such a great success that it would likely become an annual fixture.

"Special thanks go to all the head teachers, coaches, administrators and students for supporting the first annual Sedgemoor Schools Biathlon and many congratulations to King Alfred, St Andrew’s and Hugh Sexey for achieving the titles of the top three schools for the combined sports of running and swimming," she said.
