RED House turned up the heat at the ANZ Stadium to clinch the Suva Sangam College inter-house title.

Overall, it won 24 gold, 17 silver and 19 bronze medals under the hot sun that scorched the Capital City yesterday.

Last year's champions Yellow House was second with 16 gold, 14 silver and 10 bronze medals.

Blue House was third with 15 gold, 23 silver and 18 bronze while Green house was fourth with seven gold, seven silver and seven bronze.

The head of the college's PEMAC department, Rohit Ritesh Sharma, said this year they recorded an increase in participation.

He said more than 150 students competed in the inter-house compared to last year, when a little over 120 athletes pariticpated.

"Also last year, we didn't win any medal at the Coca-Cola Games," Sharma said.

"But this year, we aim to win a couple."

Sharma said their main strength this year would be in the field events.

"Our zone competition will be tough but one thing that we have noticed is that the top schools in our zone only dominate the tracks.

"And since we have a lot of athletes in the field events, we will take advantage of that and train our field athletes."
