With the best season in South swimming behind them, the Tiger Swimmers believed they had some unfinished business from that season, namely winning a conference title. 

South opened the conference season with a convincing win against Henry.  The Patriots were no match for the consistence demonstrated by the Tigers as South won 61-24.  Roosevelt was next and the Tigers continued their march through the conference.  The Teddies also fell, 46-29.

South took on Edison for their third conference meet.  Edison was the third team to fall, 47-25.  Southwest fell for the second consecutive year, 102-67.

This set up a meet with Washburn.  As happened last season, both teams were undefeated.  This time, the Tigers took the win, 93-79, clinching a tie for the conference title. 

The Tigers took sole possession of the conference title with a win over North, 113-56.  This was the first time in school history the women claimed the conference title.

By earning the regular season title, the Tigers faced Cretin-Derham Hall in the Twin City meet.  Another milestone was claimed by the Tigers, winning their first Twin City title, 88-80.

In the Conference Meet, the Tigers took home the trophy, taking both the regular season and meet titles.

In the Region Meet, the Tigers fared well, sending four swimmers to the State Meet for the first time.  The 200 Yard Medley Relay team of Kathy Munson, Tasha Willis, Anne MacEachern and Soonie Olson, won the Region title.  MacEachern, 100 Yard Breaststroke, and Willis, 50 Yard Freestyle, also qualified in individual events.

Mike and Neil Anderson again coached the squad.
