The numbers seemed to be dwindling for Coach Warren Kaari, as he entered his 15th season as the leader of the cross country team.  With only eight runners, depth would be an issue. 

South finished the season with a 2-6 dual meet record.  The only wins were against Edison and West.

At the Conference Meet, South finished in sixth place, ahead of Edison, North and West. Mike Capra brought home the bronze medal as he finished third in the Conference. 

It was learned after the season was over, that three Minneapolis High Schools, Central, West, and Marshall-University would be closed.  Because of this, Coach Kaari hoped there would be an influx of new runners to South.
