Burnham-On-Sea pupils win Sedgemoor Schools Swimming Gala

Scores of swimmers took part in Burnham-On-Sea Swim and Sports Academy's third annual Sedgemoor Schools Swimming Gala on Wednesday (March 28th).

The team from Burnham-On-Sea's St Andrew's School, pictured, won the event with a superb 150 points, closely followed in second by East Huntspill School with 92 points, third St Joseph's with 90 points and fourth Churchfield with 77 points.

It followed a busy afternoon of swimming over 25 metres for the youngsters, who were all from Years 3 to 6.

The academy's Sara Cox-Conklin told "The event was a phenomenal success. Our viewing area was packed with passionate parents, families and friends cheering on their school teams – the atmosphere was electric!"

"What a competitive event it was - at the half-way point Churchfield, St Joseph's and East Huntspill were all within five points of each other. Churchfield had some great swims, with wonderful victories in the Boys Yr 6 Breastroke and Girls Yr 5 Backstroke."

She added: "St Joseph's had a fantastic debut swim, taking eight overall 1st place victories and going head to head with Churchfield and East Huntspill right up to the very last swim."

"East Huntspill swam superbly! 4th place the first year, 3rd last year, and 2nd this year! A phenomenal performance for such a small school."

"Speaking of superb, St Andrews you are the Champions! It was a sensational performance by their entire team."
