1991-1992 School Year

Team Photo Not Available

Heading into the 1991-1992 basketball season, there were a lot of unknowns.  They team was expected to challenge for the conference title, especially after finishing second last year.  However, things change.  There was a new head coach, Jill Johnson.  Several players were new to the team and have never played together before. 

The conference season opened on a high note, with two victories.  The Millers were the first victim, losing 44-30.  Henry put up more of a fight, but still lost 43-39.  After these two games, the bottom seemed to drop out of the Tigers’ season.

The team lost the next four games and eight of the next nine games.  Roosevelt destroyed the Tigers 70-37.  Southwest won 49-40.  North next victimized the Tigers 42-31.  Edison then beat up the Tigers 52-30

The Tigers won their third game, again beating Washburn 47-35.  However four more losses ensued.  Henry earned revenge beating the Tigers 41-32.  Roosevelt more than doubled the Tigers score winning 53-25.  Southwest won a close two-point game 41-39.  North won in a competitive game 44-38.

The conference season ended with a bit of revenge against Edison, avenging the prior loss with a 44-25 win.

Two non-conference scores that were reported were both victories against St. Paul Highland Park, 43-23, and St. Paul Central 47-38.  At the time of the Central game, Central was undefeated with a 7-0 record.

The JV team holds promise for the future.  The JV Tigers finished with an 11-0 conference record and the conference title.  Every team was beaten twice.  The score of the second North-South game was not reported.  However, one may assume that South won the game since the first game was won by South 56-40.  Also, North lost four other games during the year.
