Goetz has been one of the more formidable players in Iowa girls basketball.

Before heading to St. Ambrose, Jennifer was named First Team All-State three years and was named Class 1A Player of the Year in 2003.
Once at St. Ambrose, Goetz continued her reputation of dominating the hoop. A four-year, all-Midwest Collegiate Conference selection, Goetz currently is fourth in all-time scoring with 2,032 career points and third in all-time rebounds with 1,156 career boards. Goetz earned NAIA Second Team All-American honors as a senior in 2006-07.
