BLUE House — the Mulekites — are the new athletics champions of Latter Day Saints (LDS) College.

The house won the school's inter-house competition at the ANZ Stadium yesterday, edging defending champion Jaredites by six gold medals.

Mulekites bagged 28 gold medals, 21 silver and 19 bronze while Jaredites (Yellow) won 22 gold, 20 silver and 14 bronze.

Red House, Nephites, settled at third position with 19 gold, 18 silver and 15 bronze and the Lehites (Green) were placed fourth with 13 gold, 13 silver and 15 bronze medals.

During yesterday's competition, Talei Tamanalevu proved her worth by winning the junior girls 100metres event, Kaveni Balenacagi was impressive in the junior boys discus and Jamie Mitchell scooped a double in the intermediate girls sprint events.

Schoolteacher Iva Mere Fifita said they had some athletes who could be medal prospects in the junior grade at the upcoming Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics finals.

"We have three medal prospects that we are hoping to get us medals for the Cokes competition," she said.

"We will be depending on Talei, Kaveni and Jamie to win us medals at the Cokes."

She said LDS last won a gold medal at the 2012 Coke Games.

"We last won a gold two years ago, but this year we will rely on the three athletes to win us gold."

LDS won 2 bronze medals in the senior boys long jump and the 4x4 sub junior boys relay at last year's Cokes.
