With the new season came a new coach. Becky Vossen was hired to lead the Tiger Volleyball squad.  Another new twist to the season is that the conference schedule increased to 12 matchs, two against each school.

South opened the season against Roosevelt.  The Teddies won easily 3-0.  Henry followed with a 3-1 win over the Tigers.

South earned their first win against North.  The Polars fell 3-1.  South lost to Washburn 3-0 in their next match, then defeated Edison 3-1.  The first half ended with a loss to Southwest, 3-1.

The next match began the second half.  Records show the match was against Southwest, but the team also played Southwest three games later as well as the preceding match.  It is possible the opponent was Washburn, because records show only one match against the Millers.  Whoever the opponent was, the Tigers lost 3-1.

South lost to North, 3-2, then defeated Edison 3-1.  In another match against Southwest, the Tigers fell 3-2.  The season ended with matches against Henry and Roosevelt.  The scores were not reported, but it is known that the Tigers defeated the Patriots and lost to the Teddies.

South finished the conference season 4-8, in fifth place.
