Torio is the daughter of Michael and Leah Torio and currently attends Excel Academy in Stockton, CA.

On the hardwood, Torio finished her senior season averaging 10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, and 4 assists per game for head coach Larissa Founts. In her freshman season at Excel Academy, Torio was awarded the Defensive Player of the year. In her senior campaign she was named team captain and earned the top speed and agility award. In addition, Torio was named as All-League Honorable Mention shooting guard. In the past few seasons, Torio has spent time competing at the AAU level for PLB Elite and Hoopology.

While at MCC, Torio plans on working towards her degree in Nursing.

Why Tia chose Miles Community College: “There were numerous reasons to why I chose to attend Miles Community College, but the three that stood out to me the most was the coaches and future teammates that I have yet to meet in person are all so kind and make me feel so welcomed. The last thing that made me choose Miles mainly has to do with my sister Kayla who plays there right now. I think that it is a great opportunity to be able to get the chance again to play with her because not a lot of people can say that they got the chance to play with their sister in college.”

Coach Lewis on the signing of Torio: “We are very excited for Tia to join the Lady Pioneers. Her speed and aggression in the full court will be a pivotal part of our program this next season. Due to her high basketball IQ she is excellent play maker. We are thrilled she has chosen to be a part of our program.”
