Cross Country running is a tough sport.  The South cross country team makes running look easy.  Even with a lot of new faces on the team, the team believed they had a successful season.

The team opened with the Nokomis Invitational.  Their ninth place finish at Nokomis was duplicated in two other events, Winona and the Anoka Rum River Invitational.  The team finished 10th at Monticello and 12th at Eden Prairie.

With the above results, no one expected the finish at the Conference Meet that the Tigers posted.  Led by Christine Pose and Sarah Hunt, who finished second and third, the Tigers won the Conference Title.  Laura Olson, 10th, Erin Anderson, 11th, and Lara Goetsch, 13th, were the other Tigers runners whose scores counted toward the team score.

Stacey Snyder and Melvin Alvarez finished their second season as coaches.
