For the third year in a row, the Tiger gymnasts started the season with a different coach.  Former Head Coach Rodney Lossow, said that it was in the best interest of the team for them to have a coach with much more experience than he has.  The Athletic Department hired Wendy Seifert to be that person.  Seifert and her assistant, Jim Ryan, had the daunting task of maintaining a program which has become the best in the City. 

The Conference Season began in December against Roosevelt.  Again, the city schools competed against each other twice during the season.  Roosevelt fell quickly, losing 111.1-73.25.  Two days later, the Tigers took on Edison.  Edison which was an easy victory in past years improved greatly.  South barely won, winning 111.1-104.45. The combined Henry/North team was also much improved and gave the Tigers another scare.  South won 111.35-101.65.

If Edison and Henry/North put a scare into the Tigers, what Southwest did next may have been considered giving the team a heart attack.  Even though South won, it was by less than a point, 109.754-109.150.  Even though the Tigers were undefeated through four meets, South would have to improve to defend their title. 

In the last meet of the first round, South faced Washburn.  Again, South barely won, 123-122. 

South started the second round against Roosevelt with a convincing win, 114.65-87.95.  However, Edison kept things close, but again lost, this time 112.85-110.65.  The second contest against North was not as close as the first, but the Polars made it interesting.  South won 119.15-106.05. 

The results of the second meet against Southwest were not reported. 

Going into the final meet of the season, South was barely ahead of Washburn in the standings.  Washburn lost the first meet by one point.  Everyone expected this one to be just as close.  Would South maintain their hold on the conference title.  Would they have to share it?  Washburn ended up winning 125-119. 

In the Twin Cities meet, both teams participated against Cretin-Derham Hall and St. Paul Central.  Cretin won, scoring 135.9.  Central was second with 122.3.  South and Washburn tied for 3rd with 119.

In the Conference Meet, South finished in second place.  The Tigers also lost their Region title, finishing in 5th place. 

The JV team finished with a 1-4 record.
