Spencer Hoyt came to Grace University from Norwalk, Iowa, where he graduated in 2012 from Norwalk High School. Hoyt played soccer for Grace as a freshman in 2013, and returned for his sophomore season in 2015. Hoyt lived for nine months in 2014-15 with shepherds in the country of Lesotho in Africa, and also has spent two years on staff with an organization that built houses in Mexico. He volunteers with a youth group and with UNO's international students. Hoyt has also served as part of the Student Body Association at Grace as the Global Outreach Coordinator for two years and manages the gym at Grace.

He has allowed 85 goals (3.29 goals-against average) and has made 185 career saves (.685 save percentage). Hoyt ranks second in the Grace record books in career minutes played (2326), third in career saves (185), sixth in goals-against average and save percentage, and seventh in fewest goals allowed (85) and is tied for fourth in career shutouts (5).
Hoyt’s 2.45 goals-against average in 2013 and 109 saves in 2015 both rank seventh among Grace’s single-season records, and his .752 save percentage in 2013 ranks eighth.

Spencer started in goal 11 times during his freshman season in 2013 despite missing five mid-season matches due to an ankle injury.
