Entering the season with a small team of only 11 gymnasts, new Head Coach Megan Cameron knew she had her work cut out for her.  First, she was replacing a very popular coach who resigned due to her illness.  Second, the team was defending conference champions.

Coach Cameron does know a bit about South gymnastics.  She is a 1999 graduate of South and was an assistant coach during the 1999-2000 season.  Captain Kelly Peebles was quoted in the yearbook as saying, “It’s hard to get a new coach, especially when you’re not expecting it.  But even though Megan works things a little differently, we made it work for the team.”  Liz Sheidt also served as captain during the season.

The other teams also found problems finding players.  Edison combined with Henry/North.  This newly combined team was the first opponent of the season.  South won easily, 110-77.  The second opponent was the Roosevelt/Washburn team.  Again, the Tigers won easily, 120.2-87.  The last conference regular season meet was against Southwest, which the Tigers also won.  The score of the meet was not recorded.

The Conference Meet was held on the last day of January.  South won with 127.725 points.  Southwest, Edison/Henry/North and then Roosevelt/Washburn followed.

South and Southwest again represented Minneapolis in the Twin City meet against Highland Park and Como Park.  Highland Park won scoring 135.65.  Como Park was second with 125.25.  South and Southwest finished third and fourth with scores of 120.75 and 112.65 respectively.
