The South/Roosevelt Squad hoped to improve on last season’s dismal performance.  Head Coach Gabrielle Stickney and her staff, Rebekah Polland and Sarah Stoven, were joined by 2014 graduate Lucy Hennen. 

Again the team opened with the conference crossover against the St. Paul Schools.  The first opponent was Como Park.  South started off on the right foot, scoring a win, 109.2-97.425.  The second St. Paul school the Tigers played was Central.  This was a close meet, but the Tigers just came up short, losing 121.35-116.7.  South/Roosevelt team finished the 2014 portion of the season against Johnson.  This was again a close meet, with the Tigers again coming up short, 102.6-98.55.

The team opened up after Winter Break at the Farmington Invitational.  Farmington again won their own meet.  South/Roosevelt finished fourth out of five teams.

The Conference season opened against the Edison/Henry/North squad.  South continued working hard and earned a 100.975-93.275 victory.  The Millers of Washburn proved to be a little tougher.  This meet was close and was decided on the final event.  South/Roosevelt won 102.55-100.55.

Before taking on Southwest, the team participated in the Henry Sibley meet.  The South/Roosevelt gymnasts were on their top form, finishing second, losing only to host, Henry Sibley.  Six teams participated in the meet.

The Tigers felt they were ready for Southwest.  This meet would be for the regular season conference title.  This was a close meet, where Southwest won, 119.625-113.3.

The Conference Meet was next on the schedule.  The Tigers were hoping for an upset, but that did not happen.  However, South/Roosevelt improved greatly on last season’s performance, placing second. 

The Tigers ended the season at the Region 6AA meet.  Both Minneapolis teams did not fare well against the tough suburban competition.  Wayzata headed to the State Meet.  South finished just below Southwest in last place.

The JV Squad finished the season with a 2-4 overall record and a 1-2 conference record.  They finished third at the Conference JV Meet.
