This season, the conference shrunk to five teams.  Henry, Edison and North combined for one team due to lack of numbers.  To go along with this change is a new head coach, Wendy Gare.  Coach Gare is not new to the gymnasts.  She was the assistant coach last season.  She was assisted this year by Dean Froland.

The first meet of the year pitted the Tigers against the Teddies of Roosevelt.  The meet came down to the last event, where Roosevelt pulled out a close 97.65-92 victory.

South earned their first victory of the season after Winter Break.  South defeated Henry easily 80.05-49.9.

The next week, South took on Washburn and Roosevelt.  Washburn won 122.3-105.7.  Roosevelt also defeated the Tigers 109.5-105.7. 

The following week, South took on Washburn and Henry.  Washburn again defeated the Tigers, this time by a 121.8-102.2 score.  South won the meet with Henry 102.2-73.

The team finished the conference season with a 2-4 record, tied with Roosevelt.  Both teams finished 3rd in the five team conference.
