Jodi Hoyer was a three-sport athlete at Napa High School, competing very well in volleyball, basketball and softball. She added some icing onto her athletic cake by quarterbacking the Powder Puff football team to a victory over Vintage in her senior year. Hoyer played on the junior varsity teams in three sports as a freshman, and moved up to varsity softball in her sophomore year and varsity basketball and volleyball in her junior year. She did not play volleyball in her senior year, but concentrated on basketball and softball with outstanding results. She was captain of the basketball team in her senior year, and an important cog in the MEL championship volleyball team in her junior year. With all due respect to her success in other sports, softball is where Hoyer really excelled. As a sophomore, she played All-County second base on the Napa High MEL championship team. The team repeated as MEL champions in her junior year and she again was All-Napa County second base and added All-MEL honors. As a senior, she was again All-County and All-MEL. After graduating from Napa High, Hoyer played one year at Napa J.C., where she won All-League honors at second base. Her performance earned her an athletic scholarship to the University of Kansas, where she played for three years in three positions: first base, second base, and catcher. She was Academic All-Big Eight her last two years and Academic All-American her senior year. Hoyer is now a physical education teacher at Washington High School in Kansas City, Kansas.
