South Putnam Junior Ashley Wilson races to the wall to finish her leg in the 1,000 Freestyle Coed Relay in Thursday's Eagle Relays.

High schools Speedway, Cascade, West Vigo, Owen Valley and South Putnam met in the South Putnam pool Thursday for the annual Eagle Medley.

The teams met together for a morning of fun competition, where scores weren't kept. Swimmers got to test their skills in events such as a 200 butterfly relay, a diving coed relay and a 100 underwater relay.

"The meet went great," said Eagles' head coach Matthew Edwards. "The bottom line is, it's a fun meet where a bunch of teams from different areas can come together and compete over Christmas break. We haven't had a meet since the 10th, and we've done a lot of hard work since then. It's nice to compete against some tougher teams and see where we're at," Edwards said.

The Eagles will face Southmont at home Thursday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m.
