With a new season came renewed desire to be successful.  The expectations for the team was not only to be competitive, but to win the conference title. 

South opened the season with an easy win over North, 3-0. 

South was stunned by the next opponent, Edison.  The Teddies have traditionally have not had very good teams in recent years, but after four games, the two teams were tied!  South claimed game five and a 3-2 win.

South and Henry faced off and the Tigers won 3-0.

The Tigers stepped out of the conference and faced the Hornets from Edina.  The Hornets were all over the Tigers, winning 3-0.

Returning to conference play, South faced Washburn then Roosevelt.  Both teams fell by 3-1 scores.

In the game against Southwest, the two teams that were undefeated faced off.  The Lakers controlled the match and won 3-0.

Beginning the second half of the conference season, South again defeated the Polars 3-0.  Edison fell by a more comfortable 3-1.  Henry lost 3-0.

South again stepped out of the conference and faced Austin.  The Packers won handily, 3-0.

South participated in a tournament the first weekend of October.  The only match the Tigers won was against Conference rival, Washburn, 2-0.  The Tigers lost to Cambridge-Isanto, Grand Rapids, and Moose Lake/Willow River, all by 2-0 scores.

Returning to the regular season, South played Washburn three days later for the third time of the season.  The Millers managed to win one game, but lost the match, 3-1.  Roosevelt also fell to the Tigers, 3-0.

This set up the rematch with Southwest.  The Lakers were undefeated.  South lost only once, to Southwest.  A win by South would give them a share of the conference title.  A win by Southwest would give them sole possession of the title.  The Lakers claimed the match and title, 3-0.

South participated in another tournament.  Faribault, Montgomery-Lonsdale, Triton and Waseca all won 2-0.

The Tigers’ season came to an end in the first match of the Region 6AAA Tournament.  The Tigers lost to St. Louis Park 3-0.

At the end of the season, three Tigers were named to the All-Conference Squad:  Wanda Carter, Sarah Gartke, and Dianna Martin.

The Tigers finished 10-2 in conference play, finishing second.  Overall, South was 11-12.

Gene McBride coached the team for the fourth season.  Vic Spadaccini was joined by Danielle Matchett as the assistant coaches.  During the off-season, Coach McBride decided to resign as the leader of the Tigers Volleyball squad.
