MISSOULA, Mont. - It has been a busy off-season for former Lady Griz star Torry Hill. She recovered after tearing another ACL, graduated from the University of Montana and this week she officially accepted her first job as a basketball coach.
On Monday it was announced that Hill has been named as both an assistant coach and an assistant athletic director at Rocky Mountain College in Billings. Hill will become part of the coaching staff assembled by first year head coach Wes Keller.
"I'm very excited to get started," said Hill about the new job and the start of her coaching career. "I'm ready to learn the system, and contribute to the program."
After two reconstructive knee surgeries in just a five year span, it is little surprise to see Hill hang up the sneakers on her playing days and focus on becoming a coach. Her statistics speak for themselves in terms of Hill's knowledge of how to play the game.
After winning two state titles in Anaconda, Hill went on to be one of the top point guards ever for Montana women's basketball. She finished top-10 in the Lady Griz record books for made 3-point shots, assists, steals and free throw percentage.
