Jody played for the USA Mens National team from 1978 to 1988, winning Silver medals at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in `84 and Seoul in `88.

In over 30 years in the sport, she has set multiple firsts for women in water polo, and during her playing time was recognized as one of the best water polo players in the world.
