athletic FACILITIES

Playing at Simpson gives you access to some of the best athletic facilities in the Iowa Conference and the Midwest. Since taking over at Simpson in 2006, Dave Cleveland has transformed the program into one of the most respected in the region and the country. Cleveland has produced national-championship caliber athletes on a regular basis, restoring Simpson’s proud track and field tradition.

New in 2011, Simpson replaced the track and turf inside Bill Buxton Stadium to provide student-athletes the opportunity to compete on the nation’s finest playing surfaces. Installed on the field was a FieldTurf Revolution playing surface, the first of its kind to appear in the Midwest. The track is a full-pour, 10-millimeter track from Beynon, the same surface found at the University of Iowa. Simpson’s main indoor facilities, the Carse Fitness Center and the Cowles Center, house a variety of different amenities for training, strength and conditioning and recreation. Simpson’s indoor facilities include a 5,000 square-foot weight room, a competition fieldhouse for basketball and volleyball, racquetball courts, a wrestling room, a 25-meter swimming pool, locker rooms and indoor batting cages. Other outdoor venues include Dick and Nancy Buxton Memorial Tennis Courts, McBride Baseball Field and the Simpson Softball Complex. Simpson’s golf teams practice and compete at the Indianola Country Club.

Kent campus center

In the fall of 2012 Simpson celebrated the much-anticipated opening of the Kent Campus Center, which quickly took its place as the central meeting place and crown jewel of the Simpson College campus. The student center includes several restaurants, including Au Bon Pain and Red Mango, as well as the college bookstore and the Principal Black Box Theatre. The second floor features the Hubbell Dining Room and space for several Simpson offices.

The 2013 season marks Cleveland’s eighth at the helm. In 2008, he earned Iowa Conference Indoor Women’s Coach of the Year honors and in 2010 he led the women’s team top20 finishes at indoor and outdoor dave nationals, finishing the outdoor season cleveland ranked No. 9 in the nation by the Head Coach USTFCCCA. Cleveland’s studentathletes perform in the classroom as well and are a perennial fixture in the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team. Before coming to Simpson, Cleveland was a four-time conference coach of the year as the boys’ head coach at Cedar Falls High School and won four conference championships in women’s track at Webster City. Cleveland graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1990. As a collegiate athlete, he was a three-time conference high jump champion. He earned a master’s degree from Viterbo in 2001 and added a Master’s of Science in Educational Leadership from Drake in 2009. Dave and his wife Terra, son Max, and daughters Langley and Brinley reside in Indianola.
