Grooters is one of the Packers most decorated female athletes, having been named to the All-EDC team each year since 2005 and the All-State team the past three years. Besides possessing the 100- and 300-meter hurdle titles since 2007, she also took title on the 400 and 800 relay teams as a freshman and the 3,200 relay as a junior.

Grooters is the daughter of Robin, and Greg Grooters, West Fargo.
