As coaches Warren Kaari and Craig Canham develop their plans for the season, the South Cross Country squad prepared to come into the season ready to work toward a conference title.

South defeated five teams, Edison, Henry, North, Roosevelt and Washburn.  The scores of these contests were not reported.  This set up a meet with Southwest for the conference title.  Unfortunately for the Tigers, Southwest won the event.  South’s best finisher was Kayra Grow, who finished in 4th place.  Michelle Beck, 9th place, Tove Borgendale, 10th place, Ingrid Mathe, 17th place, and Kara Beach, 22nd place, were the other Tigers who scored in the meet.

In the conference meet, the schools were shocked as Roosevelt took home the tile.  South finished second, two points ahead of Washburn.  Southwest finished in fourth place.  Edison, Henry and North did not have enough runners for a team score.
