Head Coach Nancy Johnson, and her assistant, Barb Johnson, began the season looking to build on the improvement from the previous season.  The ladies worked extremely hard, pushing for improvement. 

The first conference meet was held after Winter Break.  Henry won 57.6-39.65.  The second meet was against West.  Again, the Tigers fell, this time 76.9-56.75.  Roosevelt handed the Tigers their third loss 91.15-71.85.

The Tigers closed out January with their only conference win.  This came against North, 52-42.

The team ended the conference season losing the remainder of their meets.  Their first meet in February was a loss to Southwest, 86.1-71.4.  They then lost to Central, 69.35-60.5.  That was followed by a loss to Washburn, 86.1-65.15.  The conference season ended with a loss to Edison, 69.9-57.4.

The team also won a non-conference meet against Breck, 66.8-53.
