Senior Spotlight: Ally Hoeft

Jamie JonesHoover Sailing Club, Youth Sailing

Ally started with us in the fall of 2018, and honestly, I’m not sure how she found us. She’d never taken any classes with us, she just showed up to the open house in the fall and started sailing with us! And boy am I glad she did…in her 2 short years with us, she’s only missed a handful of practices and transitioned from crew learning the ropes to one of our most consistent drivers, culminating her HS sailing career by helping her team sail to a 4th place finish at the Shepherd last fall. 

Ally spent her summer last year in the back of a 420 leading a team on the Traveler’s Series and in a powerboat molding young minds in our summer Learn to Sail program as one of our up and coming instructors!

Ally is graduating Magna Cum Laude from Olentangy Liberty High School, with a President’s Award and an Honors Diploma. She’ll be taking her talents to Miami (OH) University this fall. Maybe we’ll see her on the college racing scene…

Way to go Ally!
