She was an all state and all conference high school volleyball player. There was not any club volleyball programs in the state of Wyoming at that time so her senior year in high school she traveled twice a week three ½ hours each way to play club volleyball for Front Range Volleyball Club in Denver, Colorado. She earned all tournament team honors at the Crossroads USA Qualifier Tournament her senior year. These accomplishments helped Ginger earn a full ride scholarship to play Division I volleyball at the University of Wyoming.
