This season began allowing the teams in the conference to participate in more non-conference meets.  The plan for future years is to play each conference opponent only once.  However, it did not begin this year.

With this in mind, Head Coach Sarah Pierce and her assistant, Wendy Gare, began preparing the team for the season.

The first meet of the season was against Roosevelt.  The Teddies performed extremely well, but the Tigers did better, winning 108.95-101.65.

The second meet was a triangular meet against Washburn and Edison.  Washburn won their part of the meet 135.5-101.1.  Edison lost to the Tigers 101.1-56.5.

After Winter Break, Washburn again defeated South 130.7-106.55.

For the third time in the season, Washburn again competed against South.  They were joined in a triangular meet by Southwest.  Both teams defeated South.  Southwest won 119-112.25.  Washburn won for the third time, 129.9-112.25.

The Tigers again participated in a triangular meet, this time against Southwest and Henry.  Southwest won 119.95-113.2.  South defeated Henry 113.2 -55.65.

In the last meet of the season, Henry and Roosevelt took on South.  South ended the regular season with two wins, defeating Henry 119.9-76.05 and beating Roosevelt 119.9-110.95.

The JV squad had only four scores on record.  The team defeated Henry but lost to Southwest (twice) and Washburn. 

The varsity ended with a 5-5 record, tied with Roosevelt for 3rd place.
