Under Captain Terry Ahrens the 1966-1967 season has been the best South matmen have seen in several years.  They finished the Conference season with a 8-2 record, the best in South’s short wrestling history.  That was good for a second place finish in the conference standings.

The conference season started with a close match against Central.  South ends up winning by the narrow margin of 26-24.  Three more victories followed, with South defeating Washburn, 28-15, Vocations 28-20 and Marshall 22-17.

South had a slight setback with the next two matches, losing both.  Southwest, 28-18, and Roosevelt, 33-21, both defeated out Tigers.

The Tigers regained their composure and won the remainder of their conference matches.  They destroyed North on January 26, 1967 by a 49-3 score.  That was followed by two close matches against West, 27-20, and Henry 26-21.  The conference season ended with a sound thrashing of Edison, 37-9.

There were three non-conference matches.  South won the first two.  The results of the last match are unknown.

In the District 17 meet, South tied with Central for seventh place.

For the fifth year, Robert Lee was the head coach.  This season, J. Schultz assisted Mr. Lee.
