The Tigers opened the season expecting to challenge for the conference title.  Two second place finishes in recent seasons left the Tigers feeling empty.  They wanted a title!

The Tigers began with a convincing win over Edison, 6-1.  They then took on Roosevelt.  Roosevelt has been a team that has caused the Tigers trouble in the last few years.  The Teddies were the jinx again, as Roosevelt won 6-1!  Eventual champion Washburn showed the Tigers why they would win the title, defeating South 5-2.

South finished the season with three conference wins.  Southwest was the first to fall, 4-3.  This was followed by a 7-0 win over Henry and a 6-1 win over North.

In the Region 5AA tournament, South won their first match, a close 4-3 win over Holy Angels.  In the next round, the Tigers bowed out gracefully, losing to Osseo 7-0.

George Beske again coached the team.  Eric Thoreson was his assistant.
