Season outlook:
After a tough first season, second year head coach Nate Hansen has had a year to develop the talent on the team and recruit the next group of Simpson wrestlers. The team is still young, but there are pieces there for a successful future. The most excitement probably comes from the incoming class with a quartet of state placewinners, including four time Tennessee placer Jacob Freeman and three time Missouri placer Tony Clinesmith. A tough IIAC and Central region will challenge the Storm, but the future is coming.
