With a new season, came a new head coach, the 15th in the 34 year history of volleyball at South.  Gene McBride took over the reins of the team, with three new assistant coaches, Vic Spadaccini, A. Hansen, and Ms. Lee. 

South opened the season with a conference match against Roosevelt.  The Teddies fell 3-0.

In a tournament, South split the four games, beating Irondale and Southwest (in a non-conference match) 2-1.  The Tigers lost to Waconia 2-1 and Mayer Lutheran 2-0.

South returned to conference play with wins over North and Edison, both by 3-0 scores.

In another tournament, the Tigers went 1-3.  The only team they defeated was DeLaSalle, 2-1.  St. Michael-Albertville and Robbinsdale Armstrong beat South 2-0.  Bloomington Jefferson won 2-1.

The Tigers continued their march through the conference with a 3-0 win over Washburn.  Southwest challenged the Tigers, with the match going five game and the Tigers pulling out the win 3-2.  Henry, Roosevelt and North all fell 3-0. 

In the third tournament of the season, South lost all four matches.  The Tigers lost 2-0 to Moose Lake/Willow River.  They lost 2-1 to Cambridge-Isanti, Forest Lake and Grand Rapids.

Returning to conference play, the Tigers lost 3-0 to Edison.  Southwest broke the winning streak, defeating the Tigers 3-0.  South would have to hope the Lakers would lose one of their remaining matches and the Tigers would have to win both of their remaining game to claim sole possession of the Conference Championship.

South did their part, defeating both Henry and Washburn 3-0. Southwest also won their remaining thus the two teams tied for the conference title.  Southwest would play in the Twin City Championship.

South ended their season with a 3-0 loss to Rogers.
