The Tigers had hopes of improving over the last season.  The season began with the team meeting their new head coach, Mary Michael Connolly.  With two strong doubles teams, the Tigers hoped to be very competitive. 

The Tigers opened the season against Edison.  The team struggled and lost 5-0.  They bounced back against Central, fighting for a 4-3 win.

Southwest and South played a close contest, with Southwest taking the match 3-2.  This was followed by a 5-0 loss to Washburn.

South earned their second win of the season against North.  Another close match saw the Polars fall 3-2.  The Patriots and Tigers played to the exact same score, however it was bad news for the Tigers and Henry won.

The last two matches of the season were both losses.  Roosevelt won easily 4-1.  The season ended against West, as it started, with a 5-0 loss.

The Tigers finished with a 2-6 record.  The doubles team of Diane Moats and Joanne Black won five of their eight matches during the season.
