The Tiger tennis team entered its second season under the Minnesota State High School League rules.  Coach Ron Petrich was in his second season as the head coach.  The 1975 South Yearbook reported that Coach Petrich did not see a very hearty season.

The team finished with a 4-5 conference record.  South won two matches convincingly, beating both Henry and Central by 5-0 scores.  Wins over Vocational and North were nail-biters, with the Tigers eking out 3-2 wins against both.

South’s loss to West was also a 3-2 nail-biters.  The team was out-matched in the other losses.  The Tigers managed to take one individual match in losing to Roosevelt 4-1.  They were shut out 5-0 by Edison, Southwest and Washburn.

In the conference tournament, the Tigers finished sixth.  However, the doubles team of Joni Book and Eileen Harrity advanced to the district tournament.  They finished in fourth place.
