With the resignation of Larissa Littlweolf, South turned to one of the assistant coaches to lead the program. Hannah Miller took the reins, bringing back assistant coached Mike Miller, Tena Palmquist and Rachel Mudek. Anastasia Smith joined as a new assistant coach.

With the new season came new challenges, hopes, dreams and opponents.  The biggest change going into the season was that North returned to the volleyball battles as their own team instead of being combined with Henry, as was done since 2011-12 school year.

South opened the season with a four-game tournament.  The Tigers opened with Southland, who won easily, 25-11, 25-17.  Game two was closer, but the Tigers fell to Breck 25-18, 25-14.  Game three saw the Tigers completely dominated by Blooming Prairie, 25-7, 25-7.  The closest games were played against LeSueur-Henderson.  The Tigers fell, 25-19, 25-16.

South faced DeLaSalle to open the non-tournament season.  The Islanders sank the Tigers, 25-17, 25-14, 25-4.

The conference season opened with a win over Roosevelt.  Game one saw the Tigers win 25-13.  In game two, the Tigers were almost perfect, winning 25-1!  The Teddies put up a fight in game three but still fell, 25-16.

Southwest continued their conference winning streak, taking the Tigers 25-19, 25-11, 25-9.

Edison was victimized by the Tigers in the third conference match.  South won in three straight, 25-20, 25-9, 25-13.

Washburn had an easy time with the Tigers, winning in three, 25-12, 25-13, 25-10.

At the Park of Cottage Grove tournament, the Tigers won their first non-conference match, defeating St. Paul Harding 2-0, 25-15, 26-24.  The Tigers lost their next two matches.  The first was to St. Croix Lutheran, 25-10, 25-12.  The second was to Woodbury, 25-8, 25-11.

September ended with South and Southwest facing off for the second time.  The Lakers again won in three, 25-10, 25-15, 25-11.

South faced the “new team,” North.  The Polars were defeated 25-15, 25-18, 25-12.

The Tigers lost to Robbinsdale Cooper, but the scores were not reported.

Henry was the next to fall to the Tigers.  South won the first two games, 25-10, 25-8, but Henry took game three 25-21.  South won the fourth game and the match, 25-8.

South St. Paul was the last non-conference opponent.  In the “Battle of the Souths,” the Tigers fell in three straight games, 25-18, 25-14, 25-12.

The last regular season match was a rematch with Washburn.  The Millers again won handily, 25-14, 25-16, 25-18.

South’s season ended in the Region 4AAA Tournament.  Tartan sent the Tigers home for the season winning three straight games in the opening round, 25-4, 25-12, 25-13.

South finished with a 4-4 conference record in fourth place.  Overall the Tigers had a 5-14 record.  Jacqueline Morel was the only Tiger named to the All-Conference team.
