Prior to Penn State: Foy played for the highly-regarded Steel City Selects program that is among the most successful in USA Hockey's Mid-American District at the Tier II level. Over the years, Foy helped Steel City to seven district titles and appearances at the USA Hockey National Championships, including two trips to the tournament semifinals. In 2016-17, her 19U team's defense play was particularly important to Steel City's usual nationals trip, with head coach Jeff Tindall describing Foy and blueline partner Ella Troy as "absolute warriors" and "really special players, who can play 45 minutes a game if you need them to." Foy also skated for her school team at West Allegheny High School, helping WA to a notable season in 2015-16: the Indians finished first in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League's Western Conference at the Class A level while reaching third in the state rankings, and won their first game in the Penguins Cup playoffs (the tournament for the western Pennsylvania championship) since 2012.
