DILKUSHA Methodist High School will rely on the field events for glory in the 2014 Coca-Cola Games which will be held next month at the ANZ Stadium.

The school, which last won a medal at the secondary school meet in 2012, is eyeing two gold medals in senior girls' discus and javelin events.

Yesterday, the Nausori-based school held its inter-house which featured four teams and about 400 athletes.

Defending champions Yaka were challenged by Damanu, Dakua and Vesi.

Meet manager and assistant principal Ledua Akapusi said the athletes competed in 48 track and field events.

"Last year we won five gold medals in the Triple N Nausori, Nasinu, Naitasiri zone meet and we will try to improve on it," he said.

Akapusi said they sent five athletes to the Coca-Cola Games last year.
