INDIANOLA, Iowa -- The Simpson softball team has added four non-conference games to its 2018 schedule to make up for lost games at the beginning of the season. Simpson will play a doubleheader at Crown on Friday, April 13 and will host Bethany Lutheran in a doubleheader on Sunday, April 22.

Simpson lost its first four games of the season due to rain in Dallas, Texas. The Storm were scheduled to play a doubleheader with Dallas on Feb. 24 and Texas Wesleyan on Feb. 25.
