Going in to her second season, Head Coach Becky Vossen knew her team was improving, but did not know how much the team improve until the matches began.

South opened the season with two straight wins.  In the opener, the Tigers defeated Henry 3-0.  In the second match of the season, it was North than fell 3-1.

The hopes of an undefeated season ended quickly when Washburn defeated the Tigers 3-1.

South returned to the positive side defeating Edson 3-1, but then lost to Southwest.  The score was not reported. Roosevelt also defeated the Tigers, 3-0, to put South’s record at 3-3.

South won two of the last three conference meets, beating North 3-0, losing to Edison 3-1, then beating Henry 3-2.

In non-conference play, the Tigers lost two matches.  First was a 3-0 loss to Holy Angels.  That was followed by a 3-0 loss to Fridley.

The Tigers were 5-4 in conference play, and 5-6 overall.

Sue Sudem was the assistant coach in charge of the JV team.
