Troyer also played softball and earned four letters as a catcher. In 2018, Troyer was a regional finalist in the one and three-meter dives for the Indiana International School of Diving, placing fifth and sixth, respectively. She was also a national qualifier in 2017. She was a teammate of 2018-19 Husker sophomore diver Grace Tiernon at the Indiana International School of Diving.
