As the season began, the question on everyone’s mind was could South continue their dominance in the conference and win a fifth straight regular season title.  Coach Lisa Wilson, in her sixth season as head coach, tried to mold the team into championship form.

The team opened their title defense against Washburn.  Washburn was no match for the Tigers, falling 129.15-93.2. 

Southwest was the next to fall to the Tigers.  Again, South scored over 129 points (129.3) to Southwest’s 105.8.  The Tigers had a scare against their cross-town rivals from North.  South scores only 92.35 points, eking out the Polars, who scored 91.4.

Edison was the next to fall, 133.6-95.6.  The only team to stand in the way of a fifth-straight title was Roosevelt.  The Tigers wanted the title and performed like a well-oiled machine, winning 127.45-90.1.  This win was the 29th consecutive conference regular-season victory dating back to 1987-1988 season. 

In the Twin City meet, St. Paul Central fell to the Tigers 131.05-125.2. 

In a non-conference meet, the Tigers fell to Lakeville 149.35-126.85.

South again won the Conference meet, scoring 136.8 points.  Southwest finished a distant second with 118.2 points.

South had an excellent showing in the Region meet, but lost to Osseo, who scored 142 points.  South finished with 137.15.

The JV team won two meet, against Washburn and Southwest.  Scores against the other conference opponents were not reported, however, it may be assumed that South also won those meets.  The reason for this is at the end of the season, South won the JV Conference meet easily.  South recorded 110.3 points.  Second place Southwest only had 81.2.
