The women’s basketball team opened the season in familiar territory.  For the fourth time in the last five years, there would be a new Head Coach, Shelly Schoeberl.  Coach Schoeberl was not completely new to the team however.  She served as an assistant coach last season.  D. Ludeman was Coach Schoeberl’s assistant. With a lot of work to do, the women pushed for the teamwork it would take to win the conference title.

The team won their first two game.  Game 1 was against a tough Washburn team.  The Millers gave the Tigers everything they could handle.  The score was close coming down to the end, when the Tigers pulled off a 37-34 victory.  The second game was no contest.  The Tigers controlled things from the beginning.  Henry had fallen on hard times, losing to the Mighty Tigers 51-10!

Game three was against the North Polars.  Again, like the first game of the season, the game was a close back-and-forth contest.  Unfortunately, the Polars came away with a 50-46 win.

The Tigers then went on a five-game winning streak.  Edison was demolished, 60-33.  Roosevelt held the score a little closer, but still lost 51-38.  Southwest was sunk 61-21.  Washburn lost 42-29.  Even though Henry lost, they did make a game out of it, losing by only 11, 59-48.

Then came the rematch with North.  The Polars were undefeated.  The Tigers only loss was to North.  This shaped up to be a contest for the ages.  Unfortunately for the fans and players, North dominated the game, winning by 19, 69-50.

The Tigers finished the conference season with a three-game winning streak, beating Edison 58-43, Roosevelt 67-44 and Southwest 55-29. At the end of the season, the Tigers finished in second place again.

Three non-conference scores were reported.  The Tigers lost to St. Paul Highland Park 50-45.  They bounced back against two other St Paul teams, beating Central 41-32 and Harding 70-28!

In region play, the Tigers won their first game against Southwest easily, 59-28.  In the second game, the Tigers staged a major upset, knocking out the Conference Champion North Polars 53-48. 

The JV team also had an excellent season, finishing in second place.  As the Varsity team did, the JV also lost out to North.  The JV had two losses, however only one was to North.  They also beat North their first meeting.  The team also lost to Roosevelt, 51-49.  The team won all the other games, however, scores from the second Roosevelt and second Southwest games were not reported.
