|Title:||Head Women's Tennis Coach|
In four seasons under the direction of Lindsay Chase, the Simpson women’s tennis program has undergone steady improvement. Coming off the program’s best season since 2002, Chase and the Storm are primed for success in the years to come.
Chase is 32-52 in four seasons as Simpson’s head coach. In 2011-12 she guided the Storm to a 10-8 mark, the first winning season under Chase and only the eighth, 10-win season in the program’s 38-year history. The fall season ended with a 5-2 triumph over Central at the Iowa Conference Tournament, giving the Storm fifth-place in the league while snapping a 14-match losing streak against the Dutch in the process.
Under Chase, three players have won individual conference titles: Alissa Nance at Flight B in 2008, Gwen Kingsbury at Flight C in 2008 and Lindsay Nash at Flight C in 2010. Thirteen student-athletes have earned Academic All-Conference honors and 18 have been named ITA Scholar-Athletes. Simpson took home the ITA All-Academic Team Award (cumulative GPA of 3.20 or above) in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Prior to her tenure, Chase served as an assistant women’s tennis coach for Simpson from 2004-06.
An Indianola, Iowa native, Chase was a two-sport athlete for Coe College competing in tennis and softball. In tennis, Chase earned All-Conference honors at No. 4 singles in 2002 and took home an Academic All-Conference nod for the Kohawks. Chase later earned All-Conference, ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America, and NFCA Scholar-Athlete honors for Coe in softball.
