Unlike last season, the South Cross Country team had five returning lettermen.  Fifteen other men came out for the team as well.  Because of this, the outlook was very positive.

South opened the season on October 11 against Roosevelt.  Roosevelt took the event 77-43.  South best runner, Walsh, came in third.

South and West faced off on October 18.  South again fell, 88-32.

At the State Meet, South finished second again!  South placed five runners in the top 20.  Roy Benson was seventh, West, eighth, Stern, 11th, Swenson, 17th, and Walsh, 18th. The top 20 runners received medals.
