Mike and Neil Anderson began another season as the coaches of the South Tigers swimming squad.  The team’s goal was to defend their conference titles, both the regular season record and conference meet title.

The first dual meet of the season was against the conbined Edison/North team.  South pulled off an 82-69 win over the northside schools.

South continued winning against Roosevelt as the Teddies fell 92-77. 

In their largest win of the season, the Tigers left the Millers in their wake, winning 103-63. 

The last regular season conference meet was against Southwest, in what many though would be an easy contest, since Washburn beat Southwest two weeks earlier.  In reality, this was the closest conference meet of the year for the Tigers.  South won by a close 85-75 score.

In a non-conference contest, the Tigers beat St. Paul Como Park 87-67.

South participated in the Metro Relays on October 16.  South finished fourth, behnd Blake, Benilde-St. Margaret’s, and Osseo.  Washburn, Roosevelt, Fridley and Southwest were the teams from fifth to eighth place.  South scored 25 points.

South was the favorite to win the Conference Meet, and the Tigers did not disappoint.  They scored 320 points, 91 points ahead of second place Washburn.

The Tigers represented Minneapolis in the Twin City Meet, against Cretin-Derham Hall.  The closest meet of the year came down to the last event.  Cretin pulled out a one-point, 86.5-85.5 win, claiming the trophy for St. Paul.

In the region meet, South finished fourth, scoring 104 points.
