2010-2011 Season

Team Photo not Available

The defense of the conference title was most on the minds of the team as they assembled in August to begin practice.  Coaches Reid Olsen and Max Magiga knew they had to make sure the players focused on the match at hand and not matches later in the season.

South opened the season against non-conference opponent Hopkins.  For the second year in a row, the Tigers beat the Royals 4-3.  In a mild upset, the St. Louis Park Orioles defeated the Tigers 4-3.

These two matches were tune-ups for the conference season.  Edison was the first opponent in their title defense.  The Tommies fell 7-0, as did the next two opponents, Roosevelt and North.

The Tigers stepped away from conference play to take on Robbinsdale Cooper.  The Hawks fell to the Tigers 7-0.

Washburn then Henry were next in the conference battles.  Both teams lost to the Tigers 7-0.

Wayzata humbled South, winning 4-3.

The September 24 match against Southwest was for the title.  Could the Tigers retain their gold?  Would the Lakers send South home depressed.  The cheering at the end was for South who won a close match 4-3 to take home their second consecutive championship.

South again represented Minneapolis in the Twin City Match against St. Paul Harding.  The Tigers won decisively, 6-1.

South finished the regular season with a 5-2 win over Benilde-St. Margaret’s.

In the Region 6AA tournament, South defeated their first opponent, Hopkins, 6-1.  The Tigers season ended with a 5-2 loss to Wayzata.
