INDIANOLA, Iowa -- Simpson alum Lindsay Taylor has been hired as the next head coach of the Storm dance team, Director of Athletics Bob Nutgrass announced.
"We are very happy to have Lindsay join our athletic family once again, this time as our head dance coach," Nutgrass said. "We are excited that Lindsay will bring years of experience in technical work and choreography to our dance team. She will be wonderful to help grow our dance team and continue the high level of performance and competition. I would like to thank Paige Ahrens for her years of hard work to bring our dance team to a new level."
