1998-1999 Season

Team Photo not Available

As the Tigers prepare for another season, Co-Coach Craig Canham decided to retire from coaching during the off-season.  Assistant Coach Margaret Hoyt would be called on to take more of a roll in the team, assisting Head Coach Warren Kaari.

The Tigers finished the regular season participating in six meets, finishing no worse than fourth.  The Tigers finished fourth twice, at the Metro Invitational and the Apple Valley Eagle Invitational.  A third place finish at the Burnsville Blaze Invitational and a second place in the Monticello Invitational set the team up for post season.  Two first place finished, at the Nokomis Invitational and the Anoka Rum River Invitational were the perfect tune up for the Conference Meet.

The team again claimed the Conference Championship, and Sarah Hesser claimed the Individual Title.  The Tigers were so dominant that they claimed seven of the top eight positions.  The only spot not claiming was second place.  Finishing from third to eighth were Jessie Tickner, Sarah Clausen, Anne Skoglund, Abbie Clarke, Maureen Mullikan, and Meredith Shonfield-Hicks.
