With a new season came a new head coach.  The new coach was someone familiar to the Tigers, Anita Rindfleisch, who served as the assistant coach the past few seasons.  Joining her, was another former Tiger, her sister, Patsy Rindfleisch, as the assistant/JV coach.

Another big change was the number of teams in the Minneapolis City Conference.  At the end of last school year, Central, Marshall-University, Vocational, and West closed.  Thus the number of games played in the conference changed.  Also, there would be an influx of players from the closed schools.

South opened the season against Roosevelt.  The Teddies beat the Tigers in two straight games.

South defeated Henry 2-1, their only win of the season.

South lost to all of the other conference opponents 2-0, Edison, North, Washburn and Southwest, in that order.

South finished in a three-way tie for last place with Henry and North.  All had 1-5 records.
