South opened the defense of their conference title with plans to keep the championship and have a number of swimmers make it to the State Meet.  Head Coach Jeff Sanders, entering his fourth season as head coach, would be assisted by L. Strong and K. Moody.

South opened the season against the Henry/North team.  The Tigers won easily 99-70.    South also easily defeated Edison, 80-57, and Washburn, 92-69.

The Meet against Roosevelt was a nail-biter.  This was the closest conference meet the Tigers had in years.  The result came down to the last event, with the Tigers edging out the Teddies 63-61.

The conference season ended with an easier 97-73 win over Southwest.

The Tigers won their triangular meet against Washburn and Southwest.  South finished with 164 points.  Washburn was second with 132 and Southwest finished third with 97.

South also won the Conference Relay Meet.

The Tigers participated in the Austin Invitational and finished first.   At the Eau Claire Relays, South finished a respectable fourth.  The Tigers recorded a second place finish at the Park/Woodbury Invitational.  At the Richfield Spartan Invitational, the Tigers finished sixth. Also in non-conference action, the Tigers faced Northfield.  The Tigers fell 107-79.

The Tigers ended the regular season winning the conference meet amassing a record 770 points!  South swimmers won all except two events.  Amy Bouta won two events, 100 Yard Breaststroke at 1:04.31, which was a school record, and the 200 Yard Individual Medley, at 2:12.25.  Jaina McClure also won two events, the 50 Yard Freestyle at 24.50 and the 100 Yard Backstroke at 59.11.  Anne Sateren won the 500 Yard Freestyle at 5:38.08.  Kate Snow won the 100 Yard Butterfly with a 1:05.34.  Diver Phoebe Okerlund won the One Meter Diving amassing 525.70 points. 

South won all three relays, the 200 Yard Medley Relay (1:56.49), the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay (1:47.43), and the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay in a school record 3:44.13. 

The win at the conference meet sent the Tigers to the Twin City Meet against St. Paul Highland Park/St. Paul Academy.  This was the first Twin City meet that the Tigers did not face Cretin-Derham Hall.  South won easily 104-77.

Freshman Amy Bouta advanced to the State Meet winning the 100 Yard Breaststroke.

This was the 10th consecutive conference title the Tigers have won.  They stretched their conference winning streak to 51 consecutive meets.
