Torry Hill, who wrapped up a stellar four-year basketball career as a guard at Montana last season, will be assisting with the women’s program at Rocky Mountain College in the fall.

Hill, 22, is from Anaconda and will be working alongside new Rocky coach Wes Keller. In addition to her coaching duties at Rocky, she will be assisting new Athletic Director Bruce Parker.

“I’m very excited to add Torry to our staff,” Keller said. “She comes from an outstanding program at the University of Montana.”

Hill was a three-year starter for the Lady Griz. She shared the team’s Most Valuable Player award with teammate Kellie Cole after helping Montana win 23 games and advance to its 26th national tournament.

“Torry played point guard in college,” Keller said. “I see her playing a vital role with guard development for us. I think she’ll bring some new ideas to our program.”

Last season, Hill also became the 30th Montana player to score over 1,000 career points, finishing with 1,060 in 119 games.

She is a 2010 graduate of Anaconda High School. Hill was a three-time Class A all-state selection and played on state championship teams in 2008 and 2009.

Keller said Hill sent him an email this spring expressing an interest in coaching at the college level.

“One thing that really sticks out is that she is very eager to learn,” he said.
