2003-2004 School Year

Team Picture Not Available

The 2003-2004 season had many positive aspects.  The team had a bit of a let-down, finishing third in the conference, winning one less game than last year.  However, the future looks positive, since many of the players were underclassmen. 

The conference season started with a convincing victory over Roosevelt.  The team really clicked in their 56-14 win.  The second game, against Southwest, was much closer.  The team held its own, but ended up on the short end of the score, 64-58.  The team bounced back against Henry, playing a strong game and winning 60-51.  The fourth game, against defending State champion North, was a big learning session.  The team lost 77-38 but continued to grow.  The young players learned what it meant to be a team.

The Tigers then went on a three game winning streak, beating Edison 50-39, followed by an extremely close game against Washburn, 48-46, and finally a major destruction of Roosevelt, 62-18. 

The last five games saw the team trade wins and losses.  They lost to Southwest 54-45.  That was followed by a victory over Henry, 61-57.  The game against North was much closer 64-40 sore, although the Polars won.  The team defeated Edison 71-33 and then lost to Washburn, 60-48.

The only non-conference score that was reported was a victory against St. Paul Como Park, 64-46.

After the season, Coach Scott Carter decided to resign as the Head Coach.  He coached the team for a record eight seasons.  He leave a positive legacy and a young team that will be very successful in the future.
