Defending Champions.  That is how the Tigers entered the season.  That was the also the target that the other six schools would be aiming at.  It was the job of Mike and Neil Anderson to make sure the Tigers kept level heads and continued working hard.

South opened the season against Roosevelt.  The Teddies were no match for the Tigers as South won 54-30. 

South faced Southwest in their next meet, one that was closer than the previous meet, but still the Tigers won 91-74. 

North was next and really did not present much of a challenge.  The Tigers almost doubled up on the Polars, winning 94-48.

The season came down to the meet against Washburn.  Again, both teams were undefeated.  Again, South boiled the Millers 105-67.

The Tigers faced Edison, which surprisingly was the toughest meet of the season.  The Tommies lost, but only by nine points, 45-36.

Henry forfeited in the meet against the Tigers, giving the Tigers the city regular season title for the second season in a row.

The Tigers participated in the Metro Relays and finished a respectable fourth place.

In the Conference Meet, The Tigers again claimed the trophy, edging out Washburn.

For the second season in a row, the Tigers faced Cretin-Derham Hall in the Twin City meet.  CDH came away with the trophy, winning 90-82. 

Tasha Willis advanced to the State Meet for the second straight season.
